Q: When you left, your dog Jaxson waited in the driveway all day. Now, since last night, all he does is whine and follow me around. Won’t even let me take a picture in your workshop! Can you call him again like you did last night and talk to him?
Eric: Okay, put him on the phone.
Q: The Hallmark Channel kicks off it’s annual 24/7 Christmas Movies today! Aren’t you excited?
Eric: Get it out of your system while I’m away.
Q: Anything eventful happen on your trip to the Upper Peninsula for the Assoc. of Michigan’s Basketmaker’s Convention?
Eric: One, it’s not techniquely the UP – very close. Two, yes I saw a tree with hundreds of sneakers hanging from it. I will try to get a photo of it on my way home.
Q: Actually, there’s many trees like that up in Michigan and are attached with various urban legends and eerie occurrences. One of them says odd things will happen to your car if you stop. You sure you want to get a photo now? Do you believe in that kind of stuff?
Eric: Oh, so I could be cursed if I photograph it? Was talking to a woman today about that tree and she said she’s going to stop on the way back to take a photo of it too.
Well, you better tell her not to stop.
I’m guessing that you believe in the urban legends so I shouldn’t stop, right?
You are correct.
Q: What aggravated you this week?
Eric: I had to wear pants this morning instead of shorts and had to scrape ice of the car windows. It’s freezing up here!
