December 21 - Rescuing and Commandeering
After a saving visit from Barney the Plumber,
Walk, on this reasonably seasonal 46th day of fall temperatures
(The Winter Solstice! Lengthening Days!), high 62 (second highest temp of the month, surpassed only by December 3's 64) -- 61 in Southern Yolo --
walking on 26 West,
from the Park Winters wedding venue's western border,
back to the local area.
Rendezvous with Harriet and Claire for reconnoitering re Christmas Trees,
after all of these years of seeing the Lonely Santa and Horse Corral Snowman out in Lagoon Valley during Decembers,
both have broken camp days before the celebration.
to tour the area anyway,
Lowe's, which has also experienced a holiday run.
Given the offerings, settle for a Charlie Brown - like needy evergreen,
but a living one which can be enjoyed for years to come,
perhaps planted and growing to gargantuan size a la the former trees of 325 North Lehigh Circle, Swarthmore, PA....
