Merry Christmas!!!

I’m sure the kids had you up at oh dark thirty…

A Christmas tree with a ‘twist’…


A closer look at the ‘starfish’ and it turns out they are REAL starfish! 🙂  Very nicely preserved, but the real deal!!!

If you’re wondering where this is, it was a tree in a hotel in Okinawa a couple of years ago  And it’s a neat way to ‘use’ the local environment. This is a helluva lot nicer than my scrawny little tree I dust off and put up every year…LOL

I hope your Christmas tree is as pretty and the packages underneath are all real!

  1. Merry Christmas!
    Hope you have lots of nice presents, good food, family and friends time today.
    I am going to curl up with your latest book after breakfast.

  2. Good morning Jim, and Merry Christmas. No kids getting up before the crack of dawn here. They’re grown having to deal with that themselves. Me? Time to get another cup of joe and enjoy the quiet time. Have a wonderful day!

  3. Merry Christmas! Luckily my kids are all old enough that they’d rather sleep in. Sometimes though I do miss the mad rush down the hall at 5 a.m. to see what was under the tree.

  4. Hey Old NFO;

    Merry Christmas Jim to you and your family!, I beat my kid getting up, I was craving coffee 🙂 Just got home and will get ready to watch the quintessential Christmas Movie “Die Hard”, LOL

  5. All- Thanks for the comments!

    Posted from my iPhone as I enjoy the second cup of coffee.

  6. Merry Christmas, Jim! Hope you and your family are having a great day!

  7. Heh. My Christmas tree is about 8″ tall–I grabbed it off the table at a Jack-in-the-Box about 10 years ago. Every December, I get it out, put it in a prominent place, & my Christmas decorating for the year is done! Easy to put away, too.
