The Redneck Tree House

The Redneck Tree House
When we lived in Cypress Gardens., all my kids nothing to do.

Almost every day watching ski show.

I made for them treehouse, but too high. Only kid not scared of heights is Sayoko. Midori, Yuri watching from ground.

But two years old Hiroshi try to climb up. Sayoko watching them. Mom scream, “Don’t go up!”

Hiroshi looks back. He was almost top of sixteen foot ladder. He freezed. Can’t go up. Can’t coming down.

I come home saved him. Otherwise he may not sushi chef.


  1. How is almost 16' up the ladder NOT too high? Funny,I don't remember being afraid of heights as a kid, but I definitely am now. I'm sure it's because of all the weird stuff you made for us or made us do.

  2. No wonder Hiroshi is scared of heights now. Poor guy, it was this that traumatized him. Wish I had a cool dad like that to build me a tree house!
