Pointing tree, or where to turn

Pointing tree, or where to turn

August 06, 2005

I don't always give very precise directions, because I tend to rely heavily on landmarks. This one, though, is a family standard on where to turn off the highway. As kids, my siblings and I would always strain to see who could see it first. According to legend, Fifi, my grandparents' beloved daschund, would know when they got to the tree and would start jumping up and down. (Probably more due to the fact that you turn onto a different type of road than the tree or the dog having some sort of mystical geographical powers.)
