Xmas Tree Guy

There used to be the most soulful Xmas-tree guys who set up on the corner.

Every year they'd drive down from Montreal and set up for a month on the exact same spot.

They'd pass the time when not selling trees by reading or scribbling in a notebook--something you never see the local Xmas tree sellers doing.  (I'm not kidding the local dudes are usually staring into space when not selling.  Or watching tv on a generator.  And their selling space is trashier.  Why is that??  Am I just a big snob?  Yes, I am.)

Finally, I broke down and interview one of them, Pascal.  His interview is here.
