Twelve Hundred Ninety-One

Mood: Imagine the inside of a trash bin. 
Soundtrack: Robert DeLong "In The Cards"

I used to have a favorite tree. It got cut down this winter, and it made me sad. Back when it was still up, someone started putting crappy plastic toys all over it just like this about a year ago. This tree is like 50 feet from the stump of my favorite tree, and I'm guessing it's the same person who did it before. I have a confession. One day on a run, I put a grocery bag in my pocket and collected all the junk in my favorite tree, tossed it in that bag, and tossed the bag in the garbage. 

This time, the person is trying to brand it as "Imagination Tree". I hate this. Putting cheap plastic garbage all over a tree and using a sharpie on a lawn flamingo is not using your imagination...It's junking up nature. I don't love this tree like I did the wizard tree, but I am still strongly considering another intervention on the grounds that this looks terrible. 

John Lennon would not approve. (Probably)
