Who already has their tree up?

If it doesn't fit anywhere else, it fits here

Exactly. That is the very reason why Ms Vilas and I haven't put up a tree in years.

Every time I hear that one I hark back to my youth, reading Sterling North's "Rascal" and I sigh for what we have become. Those guys had an adolescent racoon running around the house who loved shiny baubles but did they say "No tree this year?" No, they built a freakin chicken wire cage - for the tree!

Now there's what Christmas spirit looks like.

I used to squirt my old cat for sitting in the Christmas tree and he'd just sneer at me and stay wet! Stubborn!

The Forestry students started their sale today.
We haven't shopped anywhere else for years except one year when we both got sick at the same time and missed that weekend.

The next weekend we got sticker shock from the sellers around town and ended up getting one from Menards that lost all its needles by the 28th.
