Unexpected cold snaps had destroyed the
buds on my father's young peach tree for
two years in a row. This spring, Dad was
ready. He replanted the sapling in a
large box, mounted it on wheels, and put
the tree in the garage whenever the
temperature dropped. My sister, a truck driver, had decided to get a dog for protection. As she inspected a likely candidate, the trainer told her, He doesn't like men. Perfect, my sister thought, and took the dog. [...]
One warm April
day, Dad was wheeling the tree out into
the yard, and he stopped to give our dog
a drink from the garden hose. A neighbor
watched the scene with amusement.
"Frank," he finally commented, "you're
the only man I know who walks his tree
and waters his dog!"
