Tis the season so enjoy.! It will be over before ya know it. Love seeing the GT at work....I was concerned not seeing a blanket, but I should have had no doubt protective measures were taken.

Good thinking using the loaner last year! That looks like a huge tree this year...out of curiosity what type, size and price was yours? I just picked up a 8-9' Douglas fir from a "pop up" tree stand for $110 in the less affluent side of town...in ritzy part of town they were priced at $200 and up.

Off topic, but an Audi wagon loaner is able to fit 4 tires for the 20" GT rims in the cargo area

We had a Frazier fir last year... And a Noble fir the year before that... This year with went with a larger very symmetrical Balsam... 7' tall and $10 a foot... Most inexpensive tree we've had in years... Looks great and smells great... We usually have a 12 footer our at my Grandparents place... That, my friend, is a sight to behold! Merry Christmas to you and yours! Click image for larger version
