|F. SCOTT FITZGERALD WOULD BE RIGHT AT HOME IN BAYFIELD|
|A MODEL T FORD RUNABOUT AMONG THE ROLLS-ROYCES|
|RIGHT OUT OF THE GREAT GATSBY|
Friday (posted Thursday night).
Today, Friday, the Wisconsin Urban Forestry Council is holding its quarterly meeting in Bayfield, and I am the official host. We will have our regular business meeting and then tour the City's tree projects, and then on to Houser's Orchard and Flower Farm and Highland Valley Berry Farm. It will be a busy day, and my last meeting, as I think it time for someone with fresher ideas and more ambition to take my place (after eight years on the Council),
Yesterday Bayfield was visited by a veritable fleet of pre-WWI automobiles, mostly huge touring phaetons, Rolls-Royces and such. Of course there were a few diminutive Ford Model T's in the mix, the mass-produced everyman's auto that would change the world.
Jay Gatsby would have been right at home behind the wheel of several of the old behemoths, smoking a Havana and drinking bathtub gin.
