Remember going out west of Jackson to the Pioneer Orchard for peaches, apples and apple cider? About all I could find of the orchard today is a street sign at the intersection of Pioneer Orchard Road and Oak Street.
Oh, yeah, I didn’t spot any towering oaks on Oak Street, either.
Big Yellow Taxi
Let’s all sing a verse of Joni Mitchell’s Big Yellow Taxi:
They took all the trees
Put ’em in a tree museum
And they charged the people
A dollar and a half just to see ’em
Don’t it always seem to go
That you don’t know what you’ve got
Till it’s gone
They paved paradise
And put up a parking lot
