I got my Christmas tree today. It's a Frasier Fir...a fat Frasier Fir. Fortunately, I was able to get it in the stand without too much difficulty-although holding a tree with one hand while turning the screws with the other is by no means easy. I'm waiting for the branches to fall, then I'll put the lights and ornaments. Calumet is quite interested in the tree, the others...not so much. Let's hope she doesn't get too interested.
