In the spring, we bought what we hope are fast growing Cypress trees for a corner of our yard where light from the street behind us pours in. We bought them online, which is not something I thought we would ever do. The trees were reasonably priced, packed carefully, shipped quickly and seem to be growing very well.
Later in the year, this company was having a sale on some trees that were “almost too big to ship.” Note: if you’re shaking your head and wondering if I am a marketing sap, the answer is yes, yes I am. We bought two Red Maple trees. One was badly damaged in transit and the company quickly replaced the tree. The replacement is doing quite well. In fact, the replacement is refusing to let go of its last leaves.
I decided to use the picture and some sappy lyrics from that “hold on” song. You know the one… Yeah, neither did I. Do you have any idea how many “hold on” songs there are? There are enough for John Holton to run Battle of the Bands from now to New Year’s Eve. Before finally finding the song I was thinking about, I seriously considered the following:
Hold On (Remastered 2010) – John Lennon
Baby Hold On – The Grass Roots
Hold Me – Fleetwood Mac
Hold On Loosely – 38 Special
Hold on just a little bit tighterTighter Tighter – Alive & Kicking
