Okay, that clears it all up.  I grew up *in* a Sycamore tree, Gin.  Easy to
climb, easy to get into trouble in, too.  In little boy terms, it's the tree
that makes limitless supplies of Things To Throw.

Gin, fyi: Sycamore is one of the preferred woods for 'treen', or wooden kitchen
objects. Many wooden spoons, bowls, spatulas, etc. are sycamore (called 'maple'
if you are from the UK). It doesn't impart flavor to food, and can be repeatedly
soaked without splitting. Dan
