DO Hug The Trees In This Park


Never noticed this sign in Our Woods before. We were in search of blue herons who we’ve observed for the last few days in the two small lakes NW of our house. Yesterday we saw one about 15 feet away with a 10″ trout or bass in its mouth. It just stood there. We wondered why it didn’t eat it straight away.

Possible heron hesitation explanations:

  • It was put off its food by our sudden passing
  • It was trying to decide whether food so close to human habitation was safe
  • It was shocked to find anything other than big carp in the water
  • It had babies but had forgotten where the nest was

Possible explanations for the above sign:

  • Too many baseballs ending up in the lake
  • Too many windows nearby
  • There is no place to use a bat properly in Our Woods
  • Some potential improper uses make the authorities nervous

Some suggestions for additions to the above sign:

  • Do not use bows and arrows in the park
  • Do not use catapults or land mines in the park
  • Definitely do not drag huge, heavy objects, such as self-standing basketball hoops, into the park

One might assume that the above  sign suggestions are silly and unnecessary, but the third one might have actually prevented a real event. This, of course, assumes that the neanderthals that dumped their trashy hoop apparatus in Our Woods were capable of reading.

One positive suggestion for a sign:

  • DO hug the trees in this park
