The importance of a sincere tree 

Charlie Brown taught us all the importance of sincerity in a Christmas tree. Well, there is nothing more sincere than cutting a wild tree from your own land, as we did just a few minutes ago!

Me, "flaps down," with our sincere tree

Your obvious envy is unseemly. Please get it under control.

MORE: It's decorated, which only enhances its sincerity.

The sincere tree, decorated

Consider it controlled.

Hmmm, anorexia has ,apparently, migrated into the vegetative world. How long did the missus laugh when that "Charley Brown" tree show up on her doorstep ?

The envy is about that hat you're sporting again ... I have no doubt it's warm Comrade, but dang!

I do hope you provide photos that, uh, 'tree', with the several ornaments it'll be able to support, bent over like Charlie Brown's!

The thrill of the chase more than makes up for any lack of uniformity when compared with its cultivated cousins. Looks like it put up a pretty good fight, or maybe you had to breast through very deep drifts to find its lair. In either case, a job well done!

Edward. In the "real," uncultivated world, trees are, in fact, skinny and imperfect. That is what makes them sincere.

Ahhhh! Ahhhh! Ahhhh! Tree-i-cide.

Tree-age is to the left. Take a number and get in line.

Is this the top couple of feet of a tree...or is this it? I've seen better ones down at the Fire Department's tree sale lot on Pennsylvania Ave SE (in the hood).

Anyway...Merry Christmas and have a Ba-rockin New Year...

Great hat! Silver fox?

I assume that that is a "Carbon-Neutral" tree, and further that you planted five for each one that you destroyed....

I dunno... did you check if it was okay to do that with the Shade Tree Commission?

The hat is, allegedly, rabbit. It is some sort of mondo Siberian rabbit, though. I did not plant new trees, but I do not have to. At least two will now sprout in the same spot. And, no, there is no "shade tree commission" in the undeveloped environs of Tupper Lake, New York.

What a beautiful Christmas Tree you have!

Just don't put the big red ornament at the top unless you wrap Linus' blanket around the bottom.

My childhood home in the NE sticks had enough forest acreage that we could cut our own Christmas trees, though we didn't do it every year.
There is something special about a Christmas tree that comes from your own land.

'mondo siberian rabbit'......by way of Dupont perhaps.......?  

By Blogger TigerHawk, at Tue Dec 23, 07:53:00 PM:

I'm pretty sure it is real.
