O Christmas Tree, There You Be!

Well wasn’t this a surprise find!  I was in Skokie, Illinois yesterday (just outside of Chicago) doing a bit of shopping.  I literally stumbled upon this gigantic Christmas Tree at an outdoor mall.  I am quite certain it’s artificial, but that’s okay, it looks lovely, don’t you think?

And I must tell you, I was just about to take a picture of the tree when a young man pulled up right beside it on a bicycle.  I thought, hhhmmmm, now how do I get the entire tree without him (and his bike) in the shot? I couldn’t.  So I waited.  And a bit more waiting.  Another man appeared from out of nowhere and lit up a cigarette.

My first inclination was, “Please get away from me, I cannot stand cigarette smoke,” and secondly I thought, “Oh no you don’t! Stay away from that tree!” LOL

He must have heard my inner voice, as he took his leave rather quickly I might add.

Now, back to the bike rider.  I am not kidding when I tell you I was actually going to say, “Say, would you like to appear in this picture?” I have a blog, so I’m sure people will enjoy you posing beside the tree!” (said Cher in a rather inner sarcastic tone).

As with the smoking guy, the biker rode away, just like that!

Ah, finally!  Behold, the surprise tree in all its glory, free of distractions!
