Christmas Tree

We put up our Christmas tree last night. I love doing the tree thang. We get out the decorations, put on some Christmas music pour up some egg nog and enjoy the experience. We always get a live that we can plant. We've done this for years with a great deal of success. We've only lost about three trees in the past 20 years. Our first tree which is just outside our window is a white pine and it now stands about 40 feet tall. It's a magnificent tree. We usually get out trees at Fry's Tree Farm, but we read in the paper that Mr. Fry is sick this year and the tree farm is closed.
I looked out at last year's tree and though it had grown about 2 feet, I decided to use it again this year so I dug that puppy up and bought a big honkin' flower pot and it is beautiful. I thought I was going to have to cut a hole in the roof to accomodate, but luckily it fit.
We turned the tree on this morning and turned off the room lights and drank our coffee by the light of the tree. I love this time of year.

  1. Thanks Jason. I appreciate your note. I love writing. I've always said I would write a book, but for somereason I just have not gotten around to it. I was listening to John Updike on Cspan one day and someone asked him how he wrote all the books he has written. John said "one line at a time." So I decided to write something every day just to see what comes of it.
