Merry Christmas



Der Wheinachtsbaum, a beautiful Tradition









This year as in every year, a week before Christmas, we pack a picnic, and head for the Forest. Several weeks earlier, Gene along with our friends and neighbors, stood in line for a U. S. Forest Tree Cutting Permit. The Forest Service designates certain areas for permits. These areas need to be "thinned" so that more grasslands will be available for the many deer and elk we have in our area.







The snow was deep. The truck could only safely go a few miles. The cross county skies took us the rest of the way. We found the perfect tree. We had planned well, except for one important item. WE SHOULD HAVE BROUGHT THE FLEXIBLE FLYER.


You don't know the Fexible Flyer? Well of course, it is a sleigh. How much easier it would have been had we brought the sleigh. But never mind, we had lots of laughs pulling the tree down the mountain and there was champagne and pate and little toasts at the bottom.






I wish you all and especially my wonderful Bloggers from near and the far corners of the world, a very beautiful Christmas and a New Year filled with love, happiness and good health.
Gina
