I thought we would give these interrogations a shot. This is just a fun way of getting to know our PCF brethren a little more. I'll try and post one ever few weeks. Of course it will depend on participation from the PCF'ers.

Mr Tree didn't add any photo's to his Interrogation. Feel free to do so whenever your called upon. Please treat these as serious/fun as you want to.

Thank you Sir for being the guinea pig.




What's the story behind your alias?


OK so Mr Tree. The call sign goes way back to high school. Our cross country team had won the state championship and were having a celebration party. Someone had managed to get booze and I had drank too much too quickly as a seventeen year old can do. Feeling confident I asked out this hot chick from the girl's team. Pleas understand this was a girl WAYYYYYYY out of my league. I got shot down and was feeling pretty sorry for myself. Somehow I ended up in the front yard pouring my heart out to a tree that I referred to as Mr Tree. Now I thought I was alone but a few people were hiding out up on the porch listening to the whole monologue. After that I was christened as Mr Tree for many years. Funnily enough I no longer know anyone from the original event but the name still carries on a bit.

I did not know you were also an Oenophile! I had considered bringing a bottle to S@P, but decided against it given the possibilities of spillage and staining.

I proposed to my wife in Napa!

Next year you and the Mrs need to arrive a day early and we should all hit one of Atlanta's finer eating establishments.

Ah, the beauty of wine...

These were from our visit to Napa, where we scientifically developed our own wine blend. Mine is on the right, but you probably could have guessed that.

Lol you got to mix your own? Conn Creek makes good juice!

If you are ever back out there make an appointment at Jarvis. Great wine and the most unique tour you will ever go on. Once the grapes are picked they go into a system of caves under a mountain and the whole tour is underground.
