We attended the meeting of Seattle's Old Time Radio Club this afternoon. REPS (the Radio Enthusiasts of Puget Sound) has just gone through a bad patch. Officers have resigned, conditions were in a state of flux. All of this happened while we were away over the past two months. So I was curious to see who showed and who did not. It appears that a new slate of officers has been proposed, results of the election mid-month. So things look like they are settling down and the folks who were the problem have gone off to do their own thing, perhaps forming a new club. Personally I don't think the town is big enough for two clubs. We'll see.
On the way to the meeting we saw several Christmas trees atop cars as people began to take the season in earnest. They seem to be wrapped in some sort of plastic. My question is: were they wrapped before they hit the lots or after their purchase? I can't see someone buying a tree before they saw what sort of shape it was. As far as I know this is the first year I've seen these wrappings. Anna is talking about a small live tree this year. The truth may be revealed later.
