The Thompsons’ Tree

T Tautogram

The Tilting Tree- taken today

The Thompsons’ tall tree tilts terribly….



Too tilty?


Tree to topple???

Thoroughly thinking that today…

…time to tinker?

Tell the Thompsons??


Traversed terrain.

Told them.

They thanked.

Trust them their two twin toddlers to tell.

Then… threatening thunderstorms!

Torque twists tree trunk!



T I M B E R!!!!

Terrible travesty…

Tree tumbled, took the Thompsons’ twins’ treasured trampoline.

    Fantastic stuff, Donna and I loved the use of the actual image and that you clearly based it on reality. Love finding inspiration from around us! Well done, one of the Queens of Tautograms.

    I love the picture you have with this. Like it’s HAPPENING right now. AHHHH! 😂🤣 Love your work and the way you flow with such light hearted humor. Reading your work is a real treat.

  • Stephen Kramer Avitabileabout a year ago

    Oh no! The main character did all they could (and even with only T words, impressive) but I am glad it was only the twins trampoline and not the twins themselves. This was a fun one!

  • Roy Stevensabout a year ago

    How do you keep doing that? It takes a very clever mind to keep putting together these tautograms of yours that make perfect sense. I'm flabbergasted yet again!

  • Heather Hublerabout a year ago
