    “Trees in the genus Carya (from Ancient Greek kary “nut”) are commonly known as Hickory Trees. The genus includes 17-19 species of deciduous trees…”

    cut a bit off and you’d have a Hickory stick I guess..but I don’t see the connection with Pines and Bamboos.

    Thanks Marie. I like this one too. I think Jacqui and Tommy are making a joke about teaching children wit the use of a cane – a hickory stick which I also had to look up. Bring back the good old days . Jokes!
