The Seasons of Arnold's Apple Tree

Christy gave Eryn a bunch of Ty's books to read quite a while ago - all the ones Ty grew out of over the years. One of Eryn's favorites is "The Seasons of Arnold's Apple Tree" by Gail Gibbons. It's a good book about the seasons from the perspective of an apple tree, and Eryn particularly likes the fact that part of reading it is reading the dedication, "To Ty, From Grandma Amy, Christmas 2000". For a while, she even seemed convinced that she had a Grandma Amy. However, there is one page in the book that disturbs me, before it even gets to the first season. The question must be asked, just how well does Arnold like his apple tree if "Arnold's tree keeps him busy all through the year."? I really hope he's just taking a leak, or admiring it fondly.
