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. The term comes from the German word for "mustache", 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.
