Good Lookin' Gum Trees

By now you must know your way around One Mile Creek as well as I do.
I love these big, beautiful trees like Trump loves his wall, they are my friends.
Like Prince Charles and other romantics, I give them a hug sometimes when I'm out 'n about.
But I'm not weird or anything

Either the walker is short or those beauties are very tall.

Thanks Larry, although not to be compared to some of your forest giants in the Daintree, such as the strangler fig tree.

Those trees are magnificent.

I had to Google Warwck Davies, yes, there is an apparent resemblance, is he as short as he appears in the images?

Yes, he is a dwarf. Also a TV presenter and a very funny man, despite the daily pain he endures, and a brilliant actor in films such as Willow and Star Wars.

Re: Good Lookin' Gum Trees

Lovely trees Mark, quite spectacular.
Yes my son travelled to the states in the next seat to Warwick on the plane. He certainly didn't need extra legroom. I saw a TV prog recently where he went out on a survival trip with Bear Grills and he's quite a gutsy little guy. I certainly wouldn't do what they got up to. Lots of respect as the kids say

John, Phil, I've only the vaguest memory of him in Star Wars, but not seen him in a comedy role.
