The Love Tree

The Puzzler


RAY: Here's the answer. And the kids in agricultural school would know that trees grow from the top. And the heart that was five feet above the ground is still five feet above the ground.
 
TOM: I was shocked to hear this. How can something grow from the top? There are no roots up there. There ain't no water up there.
 
RAY: Well, it's one of those mysteries. The tree gets bigger in girth. But if a carving starts off at five feet above the ground, that's where it stays. Pretty much. So who's our winner?
 
TOM: The winner is Father, ooh, Father Mark Burlani from the Sacred Heart Church in Park, Kansas!
