Wimbledon apple harvest

Yes, it makes me super-nervous to look out of my bedroom window and see my 92 year old father up a ladder gathering apples (whatever happened to that contraption like a shrimp net that he made 50 or so years ago, that allowed one to stand on the ground and twist a wire mini-hoop around the fruit, until it fell into a little net and could be brought safely to the ground?  Must ask ... We had an orange picker that worked the same way, in LA ...).  On the other hand ... it makes me super-grateful and happy to have a 92 year old father who is still happily going up a ladder and picking fruit ...
