Getting Back on Track

I took the Christmas tree down on Monday. Do you think I was a bit hasty? Should I have left it up longer? ;)


  1. Hahahahahohohohohohoheehee! Omigod! And I took ours down before New Year's Day because I thought it was losing too many needles! Hardee-har-har-har!

  2. Do what my friend Kenny did:

    One year I had a little tree of twigs up before the holiday, and he made a special trip back to the house, taped a bullet to the top, and prepared to leave.

    "What the heck is this bullet doing here?" I demanded.

    He replied, "It's not a bullet. It's a cartridge in a bare tree."


    How festive is THAT?!?!

  3. Ooooh, Ovidia -

    I might make that into a card to sell! You'll get 10% of all the proceeds, I promise. ;)


If you are familiar with me and where I live, please respect my right to retain some anonymity by not referring to me by anything other than Chicken Mama nor mentioning city/town/villages by place names. Thanks!
