A view from under the tree. 

I hope the presents can wait until morning.

‘Twas the night before, the night before Christmas, and all through the mall, people were everywhere.

We almost waited too long. 10 days until Christmas and there are not a lot of tree options left. But this guy will do.

Our neighbors have a great tree in their front yard. I have to admit, I have a little tree envy.

Christmas. From the outside looking in.

I know this might sound a little sappy, but this is my favorite Christmas ornament. Yep, it is old and ugly as hell. At least 40 years old, but probably a little older.

I made it in the Cubs Scouts when I was around 7 or 8 years old, and it hung on my mother’s tree for years. Then one day she handed it back to me, and it has hung on my tree ever since.

Do you think she was just trying to get rid of the damn thing?

Perhaps there is a little bit of hick in all of us.


This is no April’s Fool joke. That is our Christmas Tree. It never quite made it to the back of the yard. A job for this weekend.
