For many years, Julia and I have followed a tradition to harvest our Christmas tree from one of the many area Christmas tree farms.  This year, we tried out a new place:  Miller's Christmas Trees near Rio, Wisconsin. Julia is always very excited about these excursions.  I might be a little less excited. I trudged down the rows of Christmas trees in search of the perfect little white pine. This one will work. No chain saw  necessary Next, we were off for a celebratory margarita and dinner at a new Mexican restaurant in Columbus, Wisconsin. Mine proved to be a little bigger and stronger than I expected.  Since I was driving, Julia offered to use my regular margarita to dilute her jalapeno margarita.  The food was excellent (for small town Wisconsin).
