No worse for wear
I'm happy to report that, in spite of my taking the advice of crack-smoking newspaper columnists who tell people living in northern climes to "put that Christmas tree in a bucket of water and leave it outside for 24 hours for maximum longevity!", my tree-encased-in-bucket-of-ice seems to be doing well. The water level is going down every day significantly, so that means Tree is soaking up tons of water which will help it stay fresh and......wait, what's this?
"Schlork schlork schlork......."
(I watch in disbelief as first Kona and then Bell poke their heads under the tree and loudly start drinking water from the Christmas tree stand. Lots and lots of water.)
