TARATS Entry #4

Just got another entry for the Third Annual Rantwick Autumn Tree Smackdown!

From Kenny's email:

Mr. Wick,

I took this picture just today at the CVS distribution center near my home in Fredericksburg, VA.

Since you like bikes, I leaned my large internet special on the trunk to add a sense of imposing scale.

Thank you and have a great day!
 
I mowed the lawn, helped Rantwick Jr. with a school project and made a truly kick-ass pot of chili today. That is good news because my chili has been strangely acidic the last couple of times, but this time it is spot on. I wish I knew what I did right, but I don't really follow a recipe.
 
Where was I? Oh, yeah, I know why I mentioned all that stuff! I was already having a great day, Kenny, so your tree entry has upgraded it to outstanding! That is almost unheard of with me on a Sunday, because I traditionally take Sundays to wallow in undeserved self-pity and feel generally bummed out. Leaning your bicycle on the trunk of your entry is also a common and welcomed approach in my tree competition, since bikes rock and trees rock and bikes and trees together really rock. I mean, check this out:
 
 
 
 
Uh huh. Oh yeah.
Thanks Kenny!

Ah bikes and trees what a coincidence! Those two things made up a great portion of my Sunday.

Nice shot Kenny!

Mr Wick, that is indeed a nice shot. Oddly, I've noticed that my iPad shows this site as "ANTWICK" in its browser tab. I guess either is probably better than a simple "Rant."

I particularly was struck at how this maple tree had elements of red, orange, yellow, and green still going on with the foliage.
