"There comes a time in every rightly constructed boy's life when he has a raging desire to go somewhere and dig for hidden treasure."
- Mark Twain
Well, I'm not sure exactly what hidden treasure Mr. Elijah is digging for but he has found what may just delight him for years. For the last two summers my brother John has joined the elite group of college aged tree planters, working in the True North fighting moose, bears and freak snow falls just to keep the forests going. We always thought this was appropriate as for a couple of years Naomi had a knack for using up paper napkins like crazy and we'd always say, "go ask Uncle John to plant another tree!". Well, Uncle John's tree planting days are over and if the conditions are right, and someone has left the washroom door open, Elijah has just found great delight in unraveling the toilet paper until it's unusable.....I hope somewhere, someone is planting a tree!

P.S. Is it just me or does he look a little like Charlie Brown?
