The Mustachioed Bandit

FBI searching for ‘Mustachioed Bandit’ who robbed Kirkland Chase Bank

The “Mustachioed Bandit” - wearing dark clothing, a fake mustache and a Kangol cap walked into the Chase Bank located at the Red Apple Market in the Bridle Trails area, and passed a note to the teller at approximately 3:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 22.

I met a sweet miniature schnauzer a few days ago at a lovely little park near that Chase Bank in the Red Apple Market, the park is noted for its plentiful and tall evergreen trees.

A schnauzer (pron.: /ˈʃnaʊzər/) (German: [ˈʃnaʊtsɐ], plural schnauzen) is a dog breed that originated in Germany in the 15th and 16th centuries.[1] The term comes from the German word for "mustache",[2] because of the dog's distinctively bearded snout.
Here is The Lorax, a mustache who speaks for the trees:

“I am the Lorax. I speak for the trees. I speak for the trees for the trees have no tongues.”

It reminded me of Treebeard, from Lord of the Rings, who is a "guardian of the forest".

It's not too hard to imagine Chase Bank as the Onceler - busily chopping down nature for a one time profit. I know that I wince every time I hear a chain saw in the neighborhood, cutting down another tree to make way for another mini-mansion/mortgage payment.

Three legged star dog. He's either from Mercedes or the Isle of Mann. Thanks for the comment!
