A Brief Update

Wednesday, March 1st, 2017

Sorry to leave so many of you hanging and sending me texts and emails about this issue, but yes, the Christmas tree is gone. I miss it greatly, but look forward to its return in 10 short months.

Day 29

Monday, February 6th, 2017

Hello old friend.

Hey Fella, Where Ya Headed?

Tuesday, January 31st, 2017

Soooo many questions I want to ask. (Look closer. Much closer.)

Day 19

Friday, January 27th, 2017

Alas, the tree is gone, chopped up and put in the very compost bin that once stood as its impromptu tree stand. We thank you for your service, and look forward to another slow death in 2018.

Signing off!

Day 15

Monday, January 23rd, 2017

Now shit’s getting real. Yes, that is a tree jammed into a compost bin, passed over for a third time by the disposal company.

(And yes, this is a different tree further up the street. Tree #2 vanished in the night. This one’s the last holdout.)

Day 12

Friday, January 20th, 2017

How will it end?

Day 8

Monday, January 16th, 2017

Now it gets tense. The tree has officially been passed over for two consecutive garbage day pickups, and now the owner has to make a decision: Hope the garbage company takes it, wait for a good Samaritan to do the job, or actually deal with it. Meanwhile, it’s starting to turn fairly brown. We’ll be watching!

Day 6

Saturday, January 14th, 2017

A whole row of trees (including the one I’d had my eye on) abruptly vanished this afternoon. Good news: A tree around the corner is still lingering, and will become our new specimen.

Scraggly on the base but largely intact — and more importantly, taking up a parking space.

Day 3

Wednesday, January 11th, 2017

The trashcans are gone, but the tree remains. A little worse for wear due to the heavy rain and wind, but still hanging in there.

‘Tis the Season

Monday, January 9th, 2017

Neighbors missed the memo that last week was Christmas tree pickup, and the trash company makes zero exceptions.

The battle of wills starts today.

Happy New Year!
