    The Christmas tree sighs, thinking of it's former life.

    I've really got to stop anthropomorphizing things...

    Even when it's an artificial tree? ; )

    You guys are making me laugh - yet that's quite a view for anyone or anything. Beautiful, Duane. Probably a good thing it's not a real tree since it has to hang in there until maybe January 6th?

    I hope you're going to be home for a few weeks nonstop, Duane.

    That makes me even more whacked!

    It's a pretty shot, I hope you'll get a chance to post a nighttime version.

    I wish! Things have changed with the job due to a merger with another one of our operations. I'm junior on my fleet and now that I'm union seniority is everything. I will never see a Thanksgiving or Christmas at home. Before you worked Tday and had Xmas off, next year the opposite.

    This was taken at my friend's place. I hope to get back over there to enjoy an evening cigar and cocktail to celebrate the holiday!

    Ah, I used to live in the ground as random ores and petroleum. Nah. This is why chemists don't do poetry.

    You know those screensavers that used to bounce from one edge of the screen to the other? I used to feel sorry for their endless quest to escape the monitor.

    My daughter felt sorry for my old Teddy bear all on his own and bought him a little companion bear. I worry about how they get alone and give them a break from each other every once in a while!

    Let the chemists and the engineers tweak this.

    The Lay of the Aluminum Tree

    After millennia of frozen sleep,
    wrested forth, shattered, gloriously flowing in ruddy streams,
    cupped, rolled, formed, tweaked,
    adorned for a few weeks, festive in the glittering sunlight and caressing houselights,
    cast in a carton to brood for long months
    before being welcomed once more into the heart of the family,
    glad in their gladness,
    dreading the long darkness to come.
