The Tree – Part One

I went to get a Christmas tree today. I went to Home Depot. It’s hard to find a tree there, because A. no one helps you. B. There are tons of trees piled up on top of each other, so it’s hard to look through a bunch of them. C. I feel like they just do not care.

So I left, I was not feeling it. I went to Pike’s Nursery. Pikes is a local company, that is owned by a company in California. It was a local company, but this other company either bought them out or acquired them. Anyway, Christmas trees are expensive, but they have some 6 to 7 foot frasier furs for $34.99. Here’s where the difference kicks in. All of there trees are up and displayed. They are all in water. Many people are there to help and they are super nice! I found a tree! I took the tag to the register, the tree goes to the back to be netted and have the base get a trim.  So, I am a play in the dirt person, and I have $25.00 in play in the dirt bucks, my tree was $12.44! Yahoo. Okay, here it is.


I love it! I will update you with part two, the tree decorated.

More from Emory and the Hawks…


This is the Hawk’s signing room, where they plan to sign new players to the team.


Really just wanted a shot of the ATL Artwork, but this is the mayor of Brookhaven, John Ernst.


Again, I just liked the art, I have no idea who this gentleman is.


This is actually a Hawks player, Taurean Prince, and super nice. IMG_0831
