Tree preview

Well, if you didn’t get tickets to the National Tree lighting maybe you can console yourself by getting an early look at the Capitol’s tree. It’s all over the Arizona news because they’re putting their grubby hands over it before it comes to us.

No, I’m not bitter because it’s 75 degrees and dry there while I’m starting a moss and mushroom farm in my backyard here. Why?

Anyway, the tree makes stops to let people gawk at it in Peoria, Glendale and Phoenix. Did you have any idea that people in the origin state cared this much about the trees they send us? I’m not sure I have ever gone to look at the Capitol tree on purpose and I’ve got a month to do it.

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.

  1. Aw, we always make sure to visit the Capitol Tree, usually late at night when there are few people around. The ornamanets are made by citizens of the state from which the tree came. When it was Idaho, it was covered in spuds. I much prefer it to the White House tree.
