Another tree Avy !! gggrrrrrrr
The mighty Oak, i think it is ........ a symbol of ancient wisdom, security, and steadfastness. Do you consider yourself an Old Oak Maximus ???
However this tree holds special significance, ..... after it was struck by lightning you thought it to be a sign of the gods, ... taking a cue from
the movie " The Natural" you attempted to hone the magical properties of this tree. You selected the finest peice of wood from it, and working day
and night for 7 months you were able to craft a baseball bat from it. Carving a lightnight bold on the side of it and even giving it it's own name "

in baseball in quite some time ........ you were calling your own shot !!!
You let the first two pitches fly by you, smirking at the pitcher, no one had an inkling at what was to come. You circled your bat as time seemed to
stand still, waiting for this epic pitch, ..... you realized it had been coming your whole life, and now was the time to show the world what you were
The pitcher wound and threw with everything in him, ...... you swung as thought it was the last pitch you'd ever see, ..... then it happened !!!!!!!
As your bat the " WonderToy" made contact with the baseball something miraculous happened !!!
Your bat exploded !!! flying out in a hundred pieces ....... it was completely annihilated. You walked off the field never to be heard of again.
Now you spend your days quietly whittling away on pieces of the very tree you created your bat from, ..... some of your work includes wooden display
fruit, culminating in an incredibly realistic wooden pickle, .... your current project comprises of whittling small realistic branches, .... out of
