tis tree hunting: (rustic chronicles continue)

Five dollars for a forestry permit and an off-roading truck equate an afternoon of good finds. Attached are a few exhibits. May you feel merry and wise, or just one, I guess.

Figure A. Bones and more wildlife bones. An intact skull found while trolling the forest for the perfect Christmas tree. We followed all guidelines.

Figure B. Ta-da: the prized and freshly cut ponderosa pine.

Figure C. Heading home. Lunch! Handmade bling, including the decorated sugar cookie ornaments adorn the tree, which are also the ones the dog eats off the tree when he thinks the coast is clear. Oops. It’s pretty darn cute.Happy holidays to you and yours.....
