Ready For Christmas

Yesterday afternoon, I retrieved a box from my storage shed. I opened the box and carefully lifted out the Christmas Tree. The decorations were already in place.  The branches needed some realigning from the long storage. I removed the vase of plastic flowers from the table and replaced it with the Christmas Tree.

Christmas decorating was complete. I was no longer the Grinch of the neighborhood. Whew!

The tree was a gift from the Gard family of Boulder Colorado. It was given to me when I quit working at the end of 2000 and began 13 years of nomadic wandering in a 200 square foot home on wheels. That 18 inch tree was a perfectly sized Christmas Tree to decorate my home every year.


  1. Merry Christmas, Lloyd. And best wishes for a healthy, happy 2015!

  2. Your tree is perfect - the kind I've been searching for. Last year I bought a little artifical tabletop tree. It was too tall and skinny, though, and this year I couldn't get it to "shape up" or stand up, for that matter. I took off my drecorations and put it by the dumpsters. Next time I was there it was gone, so I hope someone can get it to work for them.

    Merry Christmas, Lloyd, and a very Happy New Year!
