Folk Music Icon Joan Baez Falls From Her Treehouse

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Joan Baez, the legendary folk singer from the 1960s, fell 20 feet from a treehouse on her property in Woodside, California and sustained minor injuries on Wednesday, according to the San Jose Mercury News.

Nancy Lutzlow, a manager at Baez`s production company, said the 69-year-old singer is `resting comfortably,` according to the Mercury News. Baez is currently at Stanford Hospital.

When the weather is nice, the Baez gets closer to nature by sleeping in the wall-less treehouse in a 200-year-old tree at her home where she lives with her elderly mother."

A 69-year-old lady`s bones are very brittle, and she shouldn`t sleep in a bed that`s more than a foot of the ground. Only an elderly woman who has bats fin in her belfry would sleep in a wall-less treehouse.

If I want to get close to nature I`ll watch Sarah Palin`s reality show about the scenic beauty of Alaska, I`m not going to sleep in a dang treehouse.

I hope Joan Baez is sleeping comfortably in her bedroom, not in her treehouse.

Get well Joan, and stay the hell away from your treehouse.
