27 year-old Windmill

Before the Internet was widely used, and I think before there was a Southeast Palm Society, I got my first Palm from a local K-Mart. It was tiny; perhaps 5” tall. The year was 1992.
Now 27 years old, the trunk is about 30’ tall, plus another 5’ of crown.
Interestingly, that smaller Windmill to the left was acquired and planted that same day in April of 1992. It has always been a Runt by comparison.
