Climb-It Change

Yes, He Pines For Tall Trees

An elderly Chinese man is still climbing trees - at the age of 90. Gu Quanxi, of Xiabao village, says there's no tree he can't climb. "Now my family prohibits me from climbing tall trees, and they ask me to use a ladder to climb even shorter trees." But he admits he still climbs trees as tall as 60 feet (20 metres) to satisfy his addiction.

FOOTNOTE: All systems Gu.

Families can spoil all your fun sometimes.

I guess there is always a child in one, no matter what the age! Good for him, I say. Too old to change now!

I used to love climbing trees as a kid. I wonder if I still can. This post really challenges me.
