wow - with our supply of halloween candy still unexhausted and thanksgiving dinner a couple of weeks down the road, it was a shock to read that a 76 foot spruce pine was cut down in easton, ct, yesterday - destined for a blaze of glory in rockefeller center this christmas season!
i have decidedly mixed feeling (maybe bittersweet better word choice here?) about cutting down such a beautiful tree - noble as it is - for such commercial purposes. but, i guess that can be said about any live tree destined for the same fate.
in any event, it should bring plenty of holiday cheer to the city next month! but, for now, i'm in no rush to blow past thanksgiving to get there :D
