The Kiwanis Club Christmas tree checkout trailer

Our third visit (previously)

So we’re there on the first day trees are for sale and they only have one variety in-stock—Fraser firs—same kind we had last year, but I can’t remember for sure.

I google the variety on the spot to check and see if they’re any good.

Search results prove favorable.

Back when I was a kid, you had to rely on personal knowledge, memory and experience to make such decisions.

Thank goodness that’s over.

Hauled the thing home and gravely accepted that two strands of lights were half-blown. We made do with them and went about the business of decorating. Been on this planet for 30-some-odd years and it hasn’t gotten old yet.

    We buy our tree at a local farmer’s lot every year. I can never remember which type of tree we like. But the family is right out of a novel. You can read a little article about them here:
    Happy Holidays! (Btw, your tree on flickr looks great!)
