I discovered this old beech while hunting this week. It features (from top) the initials of my maternal grandfather, (OSP) Sidney Plott in 1961, my father Clayton Iles (CI) my great grandfather Frank Iles (FI) my mother Mary Plott (MP) my paternal grandfather, Lloyd Iles, then my mother (MI) after marriage in 1953. I was deeply moved by this Grandpa Tree. I plan to take all of my grandkids and let them carve their initials.

This beech tree is where my youngest son, Terry, killed his first squirrel as a ten-year-old. I carved the date: 10-2-99. It was a Saturday, the first day of season. It's hard to believe that Terry (who we still call T-Dawg) is a PhD student at Harvard. That's a long ways from Crooked Bayou Swamp! I bet there's not many squirrel hunters in Cambridge, Mass!
