TREE LOT FINAL CLEAN-UP

I was just about to break for lunch when I heard noises outside early this afternoon. George's crew of "elves" had arrived to clean up George's Pumpkin Patch/Christmas Tree Lot! I ran for the camera, of course!


Four guys pulled fence poles, loaded everything on a stake truck and proceeded to sweep and rake the entire area!



George is a very good guy from Shiocton, Wisconsin, who has been running the Patch/Tree Lot at 7313-15 N. Sheridan Road in Rogers Park for a number of years.



He was unsure if he would return in 2009. His business was very slow this year, although the pumpkins and trees were some of the finest!



George has been a good neighbor these past several months. His was a good, local (though temporary) business, which should have been better-supported by the community. IF he returns, I hope Rogers Park and the surrounding areas will welcome him back--with open POCKETBOOKS!


WELL DONE, GEORGE and ELVES!
