Has LOSW helped during bad times

Yes, I agree. I happen to like streams since I grew up next to one. And they spend a lot of time in streams and rivers, beginning with the pilot when they went down to a stream and got a fish, to various encounters river outside of Nora's, to Howard and Marina's various dips in the river or stream, to Compo's many encounters in the river, and so on and so forth.
I often enjoy looking at the trees on the show. Some look very old as they have incredible trunks. And the ones that they climb, so interesting. Once upon a time, I used to climb trees.
I saw a cat climb a tree last weekend. At the age of 46 was the first time I'd seen such an occurrence. It was being chased by a dog. Not my dog I'll add.
