  1. This is even better than money growing on trees…;) What a fun picture-you can tell these guys were hamming it up for the photo!

    • Valerie, I would take this over money every time. :) What I love about it is the fact that some are being serious while the tree climbers are just having a ball with it all! Initially I named this post “Pole-Climbing Class, 1918″ but realized it sounded like a completely different profession…
