I finally broke down and bought a new Christmas tree. Here it is, all "spruced" up and ready to go. Putting this tree together was so much easier than the old tree, which had to be assembled branch by branch. This one is like an umbrella consisting of three poles that fit together one at a time. The branches fall into place. No need to add any lights...this little beauty has them built right in!
Of course, putting up the tree brings a familiar complication.
Bogey...hard at work performing his de-decorating duties. Oh yes, we've been there before. I've tried every possible solution to keep him away from the tree in past years. None of them has been successful. Bogey doesn't listen to anyone, least of all me.
But now I have hope. I won the battle of the curtains. I'm sure I can prevail in the war to preserve the Christmas tree!
Mom vs Bogey. Here we go again...
