Remember the Tree!

Owing to a quirk of our driveway, there is a tree which is a major hazard for people backing out of our driveway. It's been hit a number of times, most recently by my Dad (in my Mom's car!!!) resulting in a pretty major body repair. Apparently it's been hit by virtually every regular visitor to this house in the last decade or so. I personally have come within a foot on at least one occasion.

It's gotten to the point that when you leave, Owen is likely to yell "Remember the tree!" as you walk out the door. He's well aware of the hazard.

Which makes it especially disappointing to report that Owen himself has had multiple collisions with said tree. Albeit with much less structural damage.

Owen: Tell me the Goldilocks story.
Jed: How does Goldilocks begin, Owen.
Owen: [slowly, with great enunciation] Gold...eeee...locks.
