Ain't been 'round since you-know-when

Had a pretty good week on my humor blog, what with it continuing to exist and fill RSS feeds nowhere and all that. What's run there? Stuff like this:

Now let me share with you some pictures from our Christmas-tree harvesting and miscellaneous other little bits last year.

Our Christmas tree stand, in the corner, practicing to be Pioneer 10.

Someone at the Tannenbaum Farms bringing home a fine load of Tree and Girl.

bunny_hugger checking around to see if we can make off with this tree. Isn't it gorgeous? Isn't it adorable? Grab it and run!

bunny_hugger standing with pride by the tree we brought home to be our upstairs tree. That would be the one that didn't go on the Pioneer 10 stand.

And we got our tree just in time! The first and pretty near only significant snow of the year.

Oh, it's not that much snow. But yeah, someone went around putting googly eyes onto the pinball backglasses at the local hipster bar and, you know, some places they stuck around a while.


Trivia: The crew of the Netherland's battleship De Zeven Provincien, stationed in Sumatra, mutinied in February 1933. The mutiny was quelled by aerial bombardment; a 100-pond bomb destroyed the port top deck and killed eighteen men. Source: Mutiny: A History of Naval Insurrection, Leonard F Guttridge.
