Oh Capt...*






I've got the decorating done, a few more packages to send, and a couple of cards to mail.  Finally found Christmas crackers for my kids and the grandkids. They are a "necessary" after all these years and are the instigation for some great shenanigans.

Remember,
On the range, in the bunkhouse, the local saloon, or life in general...


 * I just got back from taking Dad to radiation and find that you all love the Christmas tree as much as I do, But I didn't make it!  I'm humbled that you would think me talented enough to have designed it.
I wish I knew who did make it, as I would love to give them credit.  Brig

  8. Prayers and stuff. Lots. You're way ahead of me. My Naval Academy Missionary woodshop-dad made a hanging Christmas tree that we had overseas where there are no pines. It's like a Calder mobile: On a bunch of hanging-stacked (about ten inches apart) triangular wedge-bases, are tapered "branches" have lightening cut through with various sized hole-saws/drills onto which we hung small glass ornaments. Very Mid-Century actually. If Dad had a commercial mind instead of a Missionary-mind we might have been rich...

  10. You're right, I love that tree. We're about ready for one like that, but we grow our own at the moment. Ours are only about three to four feet and look great on a table. We're getting excited about enjoying Christmas with our three year old Grandson.

    I think of you and your Dad often. Merry Christmas to you both!

    1. All the wonder and joy of Christmas to you, the Misses and your little guy.
      Dad had a christmas tree farm plot at his ol place, a whole lot of work. Nothing smells as heavenly as a real tree.
      Blessed be, Merry Christmas!
