Ash trees are the first to lose their leaves. I use the plural sorta loosely because ours is the last one left in the neighborhood. The Red Chinese Borer Beetle has devastated these trees in Ohio. Some of my friends and relatives think that the Chi-Com military is the real enemy of America. I on the other hand think that defective Red Chinese-made Christmas lights with invasive plant-eating Red Chinese bugs tagging along in the pallets are the real enemy. To add insult to injury, the invasive bugs hitting Ohio came from Michigan. As an adopted son of Ohio, I gotta agree that nothing good ever comes out of Michigan.
