and they loaded it in their car. we had a full ride with a tree, the two of them, hobbes, and a pregnant lady. the orange warning flag at the end was the kerchief that hobbes had around his neck after his trip to the groomer, which came in handy.
it was a slow ride back home and now i'm already imagining all the places it might go! there aren't many friends that would carry a tree out of the woods for 20 minutes on the hottest day of the summer, but jill and jersey aren't your typical friends! thanks ladies!
