Several years ago we were on our way to the Langley area to cut down our Christmas tree and we found this tree farm nearer to home instead.
There was no promise of Hot Apple Cider or Hot Chocolate or other such merry treats and it didn't look like anyone was around.
We drove down the long driveway and honked as the sign said.
Gordie came out with his saw and began to walk around with us as we browsed the different varieties.
What they lack in hoop-la...
they more than make up for in personalized attention.
That first year...
we paid $35 for the largest tree our bungalow would allow.
Gordie and Janice are thinking this might be their last year running a tree farm.
They are dropping their prices.
We paid $20.
Give them a call and put a real tree this year and enjoy the fact that it...
like life is probably not perfect on every side.
If it really bothers you that they don't offer up a cup of Hot Chocolate...
come by the bungalow aftewards...
I'll whip you up a cup and maybe even give you a cookie to go with it.
all for now..
