This one comes to mind as Danny has recently posted the Cabin thread on Facebook. Below is a true and accurate telling of that fateful day above Central City.
Michelle was swinging on the swing attached to the tree having bossily ordered her quiet, unassuming younger sister(myself) Kristine to push her.
"No that's not high enough push harder!" Michelle barked. "Oh just get out of the way and let me swing"
I tried to explain that if I moved the danger of her hitting the tree would be too great for me to bear, but Michelle in her stubbornness (a rebel even at that young age) would have none of it.
Well, Lo and behold!
as soon as I stepped away Michelle slammed into the tree at a rate not unlike that of a bowling ball hitting a strike. There WAS NO LAUGHTER as she fell at a right angle just like in the cartoons.
Here is a photo from the 2010 Re-enactment of the above event. Note that Michelle at this time lured in the even younger sister (Barb) to be burdened with her care. Note the careless manner she swings with no heed for her own safety.
And the other side:
