WOODSIDE, Calif. — 1960s songbird Joan Baez is "resting comfortably" at an undisclosed location after falling 20 feet to the ground from a treehouse - a treehouse she purposely had built without walls because she wanted to sleep among real birds at her Woodside, Calif., home. (excerpted per Ape Pee rules, see link for more)

“Every time a democrat loses, a moonbat gets it’s wings burned off.”

A 20 foot fall is pretty bad. I was launched from a bucking bronco not more than 10 feet in the air and sustained serious injury. I did stay on for over 8 seconds, so if I’d been in an actual rodeo, I may have earned a very nice score. Hee Hee. OW. Hee Hee. Yes 6 years later I can joke about it.

Man, she’s had a lucrative career! I think, as a Certifiable Moonbat, she needs to redistribute HER vast wealth...just because...or else pay a helluvalot more in taxes! She’s certainly in the ‘HAVE’ column!

Too bad she has to sleep in a tree house these days, LOL!

I was thinking the same thing. There has to be a message behind it. Perhaps aging hippies should begin to realize that what they thought was hip and earth friendly is just plain silly.

Ah, I see that now. Right across from Menlo Park and Redwood City. I've been to those places. How did I miss Woodside? Probably not looking in the trees.

Some sh*t you just can't make up. I've heard of "sleeping with the fishes" before, but never "sleeping with the birds."

One of my friends worked at the Forum in Inglewood in the 1980’s and worked at the Amnesty International Conspiracy of Hope concert in 1986. The lineup included Sting, U2, Peter Gabriel, etc....& Joan Baez. He said he had never seen the Forum empty out so fast as when Baez too the stage about 1/3 of the way into the concert. The bathrooms & food vendors were overwhelmed.

From anonymous sources rumored conversation she had with the ER doctor:

A woman from California who was a tree hugger, a Democrat, and an anti-hunter, purchased a piece of timberland.

There was a large tree on one of the highest points in the tract. She wanted a good view of the natural splendor of her land so she started to climb the big tree As she neared the top she encountered a spotted owl that attacked her. In her haste to escape, the woman slid down the tree to the ground and got many splinters in her crotch.

In considerable pain, she hurried to the ER to see a doctor. She told him she was an environmentalist, a democrat, and an anti-hunter and how she came to get all the splinters. The doctor listened to her story with great patience and then told her to go wait in the examining room and he would see if he could help her.

She sat and waited three hours before the doctor reappeared. The angry woman demanded, “What took you so long?” He smiled and then told her, “Well, I had to get permits from the Environmental Protection Agency, the Forest Service, and the Bureau of Land Management before I could remove old-growth timber from a recreational area. I’m sorry, but they turned me down.”

I learned real quick I was no bull rider! I didn't even make it 3 seconds!

As for Joan Baez, many in the late 60s preffered Judy Collins.

Joan Baez was born January 9, 1941 - meaning she is 68 years old, closer to 69 years of age. Falling 20’ downward from a tree at that age had to have been very painful. Probably not a contender for Dancing with the Stars next year....

I didn’t intend to ride a bronc, my (former) horse got all “western” on me one afternoon and went from looking at the sunset with me, to bucking like a pro. I suspect a large horsefly was biting him, and as the bucking started, the back cinch encouraged him to continue bucking.

In all my years of riding, that was my only bad experience.
I had no idea ribs broke that easy.

OW.

Ever since I came to appreciate “Lil’ Joanie Phony’s” hypocrisy (with a little help from Al Capp) back in the 60s, I always suspected she might be a trifle unbalanced.

And now, it’s confirmed. She’s truly out of her tree.

(Shadenfreud, darlin’ Shadenfreud...)

Apologies to Mr. Newton. Wayne, AND Isaac.
