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!"

Women are like apples on trees. The best
ones are at the top of the tree. Most
men don't want to reach for the good
ones because they are afraid of falling
and getting hurt. Instead, they just
take the rotten apples from the ground
that aren't as good, but easy.......
