O' Christmas Tree

My column in tomorrow's paper is about our first Christmas tree we had in our new house.....well, it was new in 1983.
I'll post it on Monday, so I don't want to say too much about it tonight, but I after writing it on Wednesday, I decided to shoot some photos of the trees we've had in years past.
The problem is, the weather has not cooperated. The sky's dark with low-hanging clouds the color of a bad mood.
I decided to go out this afternoon when the rain moved out and try to snap a few photos. As you can see from the photo below, I didn't have much luck.
But as luck would have it, the song from Annie came to mind.
The sun'll come out
Bet your bottom dollar
That tomorrow
There'll be sun!
Just thinkin' about

Our Christmas tree seven years ago


  1. This picture is actually very pretty! Hoping you see sun tomorrow!

  2. Here’s hoping that Annie’r right.

    I agree the picture is a bit gloomy, a shaft of sunlight through the sparse vegetation would make all the difference.

    Thanks for following me: I shall enjoy finding out lots more about you. (Just in time btw., I’m a bit OCD and promised myself that I’d attempt to get 500 followers by the end of the year at the latest)

    Your profile promises much, I like interesting blogs and good writing is the first requirement for my continued attention. There’s not that much around in blogland.

    See, I’ve joined you too.

  3. A little gloomy...yes...but wonderfully atmospheric!! :)

  4. I hope Annie is right too... it would be nice to see some sun after this pelting snowstorm :)
