Sleeping is fine. We're not on the job here, I just seem to be lost, and thought you guys could help. Think I left the map and my spade at the place. Whoops.

It'll just take one of you remembering where this was, and it'll be a snap getting there.

This is a fine group of people for now, I'm only anticipating a bit of scouting out tonight, and wanted to get your opinions on something.

Just gotta remember where this was. :\

hmmm... Well, we had actual snow on the ground here in Houston a few days ago, and I hear it also snowed in New Orleans, of all places.

My brother in law's in Portland.  No spade, but he counts endangered river trout for a living.

I never get lost.. unless I already am?

Ah yeah, there it is.

So as some of you may remember, we introduced the Giving Tree last year, and we'd like to make it really sweet this year.

Just planted the tree. Do you approve of the choice?

I'm saying, though, if there's as much snow as the picture shows, then the ground beneath it must have been mighty frozen.  It would have been a lot of work to dig all that up, then plant a tree, then put the snow back on top of it.

Next time, buy a fake tree.  It'll save you the time and effort, and probably a few bucks as well.  With that saved money, you can donate more to charity.  Thus, the giving tree never stops giving.

Fake trees are made of plastic which is bad, and don't create oxygen which is good. So -2 for fake trees.
