mayor of Es­tero “When our old­est son got his driver’s li­cense, he took our younger son with him and our brand-new car—brag­ging they would go and find the best [Christ­mas] tree EVER! When they walked in the door with ‘best tree ever,’ the tree was so scrawny and short, the dis­ap­point­ment on Diane’s face and mine said it all. Our son the driver went up to his room to­tally indig­nant. Af­ter a while our younger son, Doug, asked us: ‘Did Jeff tell you about the car?’ ‘What about the car?’ we asked. ‘When Jeff went to get this tree,’ he told us, ‘he sort of went over a bank and we heard a scrap­ing noise un­der the car!’ You guessed it— the en­tire muf­fler sys­tem on our brand-new car was ru­ined. Right af­ter that Christ­mas, Diane and I bought our first ar­ti­fi­cial Christ­mas tree.”
