About Time Friday


Georgia: Today is Friday and Mom was off .
She is using up her vacation days.
Did she stay home with us? No!
She went out with her sister !
She did come back early though and agreed to help me blog.

I wanted to tell you about an event that took place this past week.
It is about a very large tree that was cut down and loaded
on a big truck and sent to the city of Boston in the USA.
It is done every year as Nova Scotia's way of saying
"Thank You" to Boston for all the help they gave to 
Halifax,Nova Scotia following the  terrible


This picture, taken by  The Chronicle Herald shows the 
tree donor  Mary Lou Milligan and her two grandsons.


Here is the tree as it starts the journey!


Today, the tree arrived in Boston!
You can see the journey of the tree on
The Tree for Boston page.

We hope you all have a fun weekend !

I hadn't heard about the explosion of 1917. That is a big tree to send to Boston every year, and it will look lovely when it is covered in lights.

What a fascinating bit of history. We didn't know that either. But I still think your human could have told us about that and stayed home with all of you... ;).

Interesting story, thanks for sharing ! We're still wondering what human's vacation days are made for if it's not for staying with the kitties. Purrs

Our human staff had never heard of the Halifax disaster, and ended up reading about it for an hour afterward.

What a great tradition. Mom says she remembers reading about that Halifax explosion. She does want us to make sure you know that she didn't read about it when it actually happened. She's super old, but not that old. Anyway, she didn't know about the tree tradition and says,"thanks for sharing."
