'Tis the Season

Spent yesterday dealing with Christmas tree erection (at my age you take what life gives you!) and listening to jazz Christmas carols on Sirius radio. I began to be moved inexorably by the spirit of the season. Cold morning in Texoma makes the fireplace welcome and watching the Minnesotans shovel snow off the collapsing roof of Bret Favre Land helps as well.

So, if you need some plans for the season and some proper defensive moves for avoiding unpleasant eventualities, here is a bit of guidance:

Same activity in our household.
SWMBO said that a Totara (native NZ) tree would be nice this year.
I thought this was silly but just passed nuetral comments and played for time.
Daughter (10yrs) overheard and lead the charge, "No Mom I want a pine its GOT to be a pine!.".
For once I kept my mouth shut and let SWMBO face the big guns.
It only took a few rounds and I was soon dispatched with spade and daughter to select and retrieve the pine.
