Re: Woman yelling at trees . . . . Am I the only oldster to remember a song called "I Talk to the Trees, and they listen to me"??? I am 65 and fell in the woods on a camping trip this summer, and I guess if anyone was around to see/hear it, they might have taken my epithets upon skinning my knees, belly, hands, etc. as tree-talking. Come to think of it, considering the conversations I've had regarding this year's election, I'd be better off talking to trees!!!

Didn't Clint Eastwood sing that in Paint Your Wagon? He seems to have an affinity for conversing with wooden objects.
