Childhood Memories

Jean Jacket, Blue Suburban, Twined Tannenbaum.

Christmas Tree - Doug Fir Portland
This picture nearly made me tear up when I recently rediscovered it…I unearthed this 4×6 inch Fujicolor print in me ol’ childhood memory box. It is, by far, one of my new favorite pictures of all time. It is so telling of my youth and where I came from. I remember those cold early December days heading out to the “You Cut!” Christmas Tree Lot with my dad, siblings and a hacksaw. We’d all pile in our big (and I mean big) baby blue Suburban, pick out the perfect tree, feverishly cut it down, strap it to the roof and then barrel home to set ‘er up in living room.
