I wish I had been able to join the students from the GreenMount School in Remington and Independence School in Hampden on Arbor Day as they planted 40 small trees along Stony Run. Besides being fun, initiatives like this one by the Baltimore City Forestry Conservancy and others by organizations like Baltimore Tree Trust and Parks & People Foundation make an impact. Baltimore City has set a goal of doubling the tree canopy from 20 per cent to 40 per cent by 2037. A larger tree canopy adds beauty to a city and helps remove carbon dioxide and pollutants from the air. Engaging students and residents in tree planting and maintenance activities is also a broadening educational experience.

BIG MAN and Crazy Eddie were over again the other night, and it was party time in the front yard, when things got as ugly as ever. See, Big Man and Crazy Eddie are the names my family has given to the two deer who've been ravaging our crab-apple tree for weeks. That's because these are two of the biggest, toughest-looking deer you could ever see. They're like, I don't know, biker deer or something. The only thing missing are tattoos and little doo-rags around their antlers. And a couple of Harleys parked at the curb.

EACH CHRISTMAS, I try to identify the hot new item in outdoor home decorations, just to see how far behind the decorating curve I've fallen. This year, of course, the hot item is: illuminated reindeer. If you don't have an illuminated reindeer on your front lawn, brother, you're not with it at all. Last year, it was icicle lights; this year, it's reindeer that light up. Yes, sir, for around 100 bucks, you can get a 57-inch reindeer with 300 twinkling lights made in that hotbed of Christmas spirit and lore: China.

Back then, repairs came easily to the contractor.But now he's 90, and the old one-story house near the end of Kitty Duvall Drive is slowly falling apart. The roof sags, and heat escapes through the cracked, uninsulated walls.A few weeks ago, Mr. Wilkens tried to crawl around in the basement to fix old water pipes, and the metal disintegrated in his hands.Soon, Mr. Wilkens and his wife, Reatha, 82, will move from the crumbling old place to a house being built on their front lawn.

Washington -- Mail call in Lafayette Park.William Thomas, who has lived in the park since 1981 -- the better to be close to the White House, the better to exercise his right of free expression in what serves as the nation's front yard -- has returned from the post office to his home, on the sidewalk.He has company.There is his wife, Ellen, fellow park resident. There usually are tourists. There always are the homeless waiting out the day on the benches.
