Greetings it has been a while since my last Blog update hope all is well! Just a little pictorial update of Minnetonka Drive In Tree Lot/Spruce Tops/Wreaths and other decorations at the tree lot.

Dave wanted pictures taken to entice you to visit and maybe buy a beautiful fresh Tree or Wreath or Spruce Top to make your humble Abode look Festive for the Season. Of course this meant a photo gallery with Dave being the Star showing the items you need and to stop by and checkout, purchase and Yak with Dave. Dave and Deb miss all of you!

On with the Show! Tell them Rick sent you - Note Dave calls me Randy!
