Garfield (11/17/10)

Speaking of trees, there’s a small one in my backyard that’s starting to look forlorn. On the one hand, it’s nearly as tall as my house. On the other hand, it’s thin and sparse and leans to one side, courtesy of a spring storm that whipped it around like a twig caught in an updraft. And while it does sprout leaves in the summer, it looks pretty pathetic during the winter. So I plan to make the best of a bad situation by hanging Christmas lights on the tree, Charlie Brown-style, before renting a chainsaw and chopping it down.
