We  put up the tree on Friday!  The wife loves this time of year, I myself am kind of a humbug at times, I take a lot after my old man!  As much as I may dislike the commercial side of Christmas, it is all worth it to see the excited look on her face when she trims the tree!   Our Christmas Tree doesn’t require much trimming, it is less than 4 feet tall and is ready in about 20 minutes on our kitchen table.  But nothing helps set the mood like the “Christmas Yule Log”, a streaming video of a fireplace with Xmas music my brother made years ago!  Put the hot chocolate on and regardless of the tree size, the spirit is there and it is a blast!

Gotta love living in a small 2 bedroom apartment, sometimes you just gotta make things work!  Speaking of make it work, click on my ad on the top of the right hand navigation bar so I can start collecting some Christmas cash!  Thanks!

Here is some irony, Support The Troops with Jolly Ol’ Saint Nicholas strapped to a round parachute in the background!  I used a High Pass Sharpen on this one to help bring out the detail.  What is a High Pass Sharpen?  Tune in Friday to find out!
