Been planning on doing a wreath the last couple years, now that I have time, next year.  Like Grandma did and the Curry Family.   At least that guy from Ioway didn't rip off the wreath part. ::)

BTW that was taken just a few miles from Jerry's place.

When I was kid it was real trees with wonderful odors  ,  Fraser Fir,  Scotch Pine or Blue Spruce  whatever was imported from up north.
Christmas trees don't grow here and personally Coconut palms don't look or smell Christmassy.

 One year about 2011 , I had a wild idea , and bought a live 5' Juniper in a large wash tub size planter ( they do grow here )
The idea was after Christmas to plant it ....
Well, the cat decided , " hey cool , an inside tree will attached litter box , how convenient ,  I can play in the tree and then CRAP in the box ! "
 
Fake tree for then on !

Morning all.
25 degrees looking for mid forties.

French vanilla coffee, if you're so inclined.

We went with an artificial tree five years ago. One of those that came in a box pre-strung with lights. Just pop it out of the box and assemble.
The laws of physics somehow defied when it would never go back into that same box come time to put away. Ended up having to cinch it with a piece of rope to hold the box together. Even then it always seemed it was in imminent danger of exploding out of the confines of the box. Plus it started to show wear and tear with age, shedding.
This year we finally got rid of it and got a cute little three footer, pre-lit. Can't put as many of the family ornaments on it but that's OK, seeing as the girls have confiscated many in past years to seed their family Christmas trees.

No indication of problems, went out and was cutting saplings in the yard, came in, didn't feel good, sat on the couch, wife brought him a glass of water, said he felt better and dropped over dead, EMT's were there in minutes, went to one of the best hospitals for heart and nothing.   

17 of us cousins, 4 gone now, 3 dropped over dead of a heart attack and I got away with problems I ignored for at least 3 years and they had no signs.

Morning all.

I’ll pour some water over the powdered beans. ::)

Currently 37, foggy in Missoula. Supposed to get some white stuff later in the morning.

"On this day, December 23, in 1829, Duke Paul Wilhelm of Wurttemberg embarked on the second of his three exploratory journeys of the headwaters of the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers. He gathered thousands of scientific specimens and recorded his insights into the lives of the American Indians in every region he visited."

Around a mile from our Condo is a golf course with a pond near the road. This young fella was sunning himself today on the bank. I believe he lives in this pond. Don't think I'd want to retrieve any balls from this pond. I'm guessing he's around an eight footer.
