Default Yule, y'all

Tis the season, and yes this is not about model stuff so if that bugs you sue me.

The Redhead Herself started walking around with her lip stuck out, so as always it was up to me to find out what it would take to appease her.

"Christmas tree !", she wailed.

Off to wrestle said beast to the ground, as it were.

Out with the saw, in with the stand, you know the drill.

Now, most folks have a Christmas tradition of one sort or another, and so do we.

Y'see . . . it's not a Christmas tree until it's in the house, in the stand, fed and watered, and duly annointed with The First Christmas Tree Ornament.

That's right. There is one ornament which absolutely must be affixed to the sawed-off stump which used to be a Douglas Fir in order for it to be a legal Christmas Tree around here.

So in the spirit of the season, here's what we think The First Christmas Tree Ornament should look like . . .

Cheers and Yule, Y'all

Looks like an AA 12ga... short brass is fine for shooting skeet or that plane you want to replace!

I dunno from short or long brass, but I got it from my Dad who shoots pigeons you can't eat. ATA trap, y'know.

Point is, it _was_ a shotgun shell. Now it's The First Christmas Tree Ornament.

You ain't got a Christmas Tree unless you gotts one of those. It says that rat cheer in fine print somewhere . . .

He is right if you do not decorate a tree , it is just a tree. What you see is in your own eye's. Let it be what we have in our hearts this season. Let us fly and be marry!

Yes, Fred, I noted the old sigline after I posted and it can't be edited.

Maybe I've gotten it taken care of... we'll see directly.

Have a Great Holiday Season!
