We just did 80 regular trees, need another 80. The BIL and his Dad just did a 55 footer, they are doing 3 big ones this year. Going to LA, San Diego and Arizona I believe.

Then there was my dad .Every year Christmas eve day the old man and his buddies went on a little toot from noon on .He always came home about dark with a Christmas tree .One year when I was 12,1960  here he came with a tree that covered the entire length of a '55 Olds 98 ,hung over the back and over the front .Nearly drug the ground. Cost him all of 50 cents ,they couldn't sell that thing .

That thing was fat enough  you could have made lumber out of it .It had to be at least 30 feet and had about an 8-10 inch base on it .We cut out a bunch of the bottom and a bunch of the top and it filled the best portion of a 10 by 12 room .That was over 50 years ago and we still talk about it .
