Big News in a Little Town

About a week after moving to Fallon, we had some exciting news. "They're putting up a new cell phone tower," exclaimed one of the technicians, "and they're trying to disguise it as a tree." We all rushed to the drive up window and shoved our heads out to get a good look. I felt a little silly, but it's not every day you get a new cell tower. Maybe we'll get better service, which would not be a bad thing. It was kind of fun to watch the tree "grow" too. I didn't give it another thought.

You'd think they could come up with a better disguise. It's the biggest tree for 60 miles!

That was the plan anyway. For the next week and a half, whenever a customer wanted to make conversation, it started off like this, "Did you see that big tree in the middle of town?" Quite a few didn't even know what it was. Got to make the best of any available news, I s'pose. :)
