The 2 Non-Fake Christmas Trees Are Up (But Not Decorated) — So, All 3 Trees Are Up On The Advent.

Got these two, $35/each
from ‘Farmington Boy Scouts Troop 188’
At ‘Harley Davidson’ In Rochester, N.H.
yesterday.

** ** ** ** ** 


Most of my work is done — i.e., buying and getting the trees inside and installed. I don’t do much of the decorating. There are enough hands for that. These two trees were BIG. Had to chop off a fair amount, on both, top and bottom. We have tree toppings so we need space at the top.

Having an electric chain saw makes it easy. SMILE. I am now even cutting vertical notches at the bottom to facilitate water absorption. Teischan, as always, helped since the trees are ‘her thing’. Wasn’t too bad. Waited until 2:30pm when the temp. was just about freezing. Felt warm and good.

No school tomorrow (Monday) because of the snow. So, I assume that some decorating will commence. Stay tuned.

Good trees. $35/each.

Exceptional service.

They will load and securely tie down.
(They know what they are doing.)

Made a point of getting it from them this. We had discovered them last year and was very impressed with their exceptional service. I loved it. After decades of struggling tying down trees to the roof I can now let a couple of professionals do it — with aplomb and courtesy. Very nice group of people. Very impressive. Glad to give them the money rather than to Walmart.

They should still have trees on Sunday. They had a got 225 from Canada. They were, however, going fast — as they should.

We, as usual, got two. We are very pleased.

Yes, you are free to steal these pictures.

Anura Guruge November 2019


Beaujolais Nouveau day. One of the few days in the year when you are likely to see a picture of I which is NOT a selfie — but, I will invariably be holding a glass (or drinking a glass) of Beaujolais Nouveau. So, I thought I should do a selfie without the glass of wine. This was at Market Basket, Rochester, before I got home with the bottles of wine.

I am hoping that the huge, new New Hampshire Liquor Store in Rochester will be carrying bottles of Beaujolais Nouveau 2019 tomorrow — Thursday, November 21, 2019. I plan to head out around noon. They are supposed to be one of the largest stores in NH, now, and as such I am hoping that they will be given an allocation. Otherwise I will have to go to Concord or Portsmouth. I would rather not. Fingers crossed. I do have a contingency plan as well.

I will, of course, keep you posted. Cheers.

Rochester is always a good hunting grounds for pictures of flowers. Today was no exception. I lucked out. I think I still have at least a month left in terms of being able to snap pretty flowers OUTSIDE before the snow arrives in New Hampshire. So, I am going to make the best of that. Foliage is early this year. Very early. So, with luck I will be able to transition from flowers to foliage. Enjoy.
