Vitaceae - cissus

I consider myself victorious when I can get a tree or plant properly identified. Thanks to Robin Foster at the Field Museum in Chicago, such was the case of the plant in the attached image. I had identified it as red milkweed, based on what I heard from another non-professional several years ago. Robin set the record straight. It's Vitaceae - cissus. Many thanks for the help. There are more identifications to come.

I've been trying to catch up a little here this morning. Your posts have been an interesting read, as always and your pictures great fun to see, as well. Thanks for stopping by my blog during my downtime. I'm still not at 100%, but doing a bit better. Just need to recognize my limits and not kill myself in the process. ;-)
Hope all is well with you and your family.
