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!
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?!?!
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!
