Kurt Simon and the Grapefruit Tree


"As Kurt always told Dylan... The best time to plant a tree is twenty years ago... The NEXT BEST TIME is RIGHT NOW!!!!!"

This reminds me of the time when I was trying to think of a birthday gift for Kurt.  I was in France at the time and not able to "shop" in Los Angeles  for a gift.   

Kurt & I always liked grapefruit.  I phoned a friend of mine to search for a full grown grapefruit tree and have it delivered to Kurt's house during his birthday party.  

A truck with several men came to the house.  Kurt answered the door and they asked where he wanted the tree planted.  By coincidence, the tree had a single near ripe grapefruit on it.  

Kurt & his guests had fun watching his birthday grapefruit tree planted in his garden.  I have no knowledge whether the tree is still there.
