A decent little gathering of divers folks at the Heartland Cafe on a decent enuff day in late November. The light in that area of the Heartland is usually quite decent but it doesn't seem to be up to snuff this time. I think Duggy Wuggy might have put a hex on the camera. You can sort of tell by the look of demonic intensity in his steely eyes. Or maybe he's asleep. Anywaze the Dugster came up with more wild and wooly tales of cross-border trade in Christmas trees -- not for the squeemish, I can assure you. He said some of the American suppliers spray paint their trees orange, but wait, I've already said too much.
