I thought this was a funny experience that happened yesterday and wanted to share. Yesterday I did as I always do after leaving the office. Once I'v left the office and turned on a side road that leads to the main expressway home, I stop usually midway and put my pistol on my belt IWB @ the 4 o'clock position. This requires that I open the door and partially exit my truck. This day was like all the others except after I finished arming up and starting to get back in the truck, I just happened to look slightly up and what did I see, a man about twenty feet away standing about ten feet up in a dang tree.
That was the funniest feeling I'v have had in a long time. We made perfect eye contact and I kinda gave a hint of a smile and slight nod to the fellow, but he just looked puzzled, kinda stoic I guess. I couldn't figure out what he thought. It may have been my smile that froze him up like that thinking I was a BG or something. It was totally from surprise, cause the street is always empty except for the church and the thought of being made by some dude in a tree is pretty far out there IMO. I just reacted to awkwardness of the scene and got back in my truck and drove away. I always check my surroundings before I do this and I'v never even come close to being made anywhere, who'd of thought the arial view was a factor on a street with no homes . Turns out, a small tree saw was in the guys hand and I realized he was cutting the dead limb's from the tree on the edge of the Church's property as I was leaving. He was an older gentleman and I found myself wondering and chuckling about what his thoughts of the encounter were. Oh well, new plan. Arm up somewhere else, or check the trees too.
