We ran into Reno after work today to buy a Christmas tree. Not a big traditional one, but once again, a little living dwarf spruce. We initially got such tiny trees because we were living in the tiny space of Lisa's travel trailer, but since then we've continued trying to nurse the trees along for a second year or longer. We succeeded once. The hard part comes in summer, particularly when we go away for a week or so for Westercon, because there's not a lot of ways to keep the little tree watered. But we'll give it another try.
