MY HOLIDAY GIFT TO YOU



MY HOLIDAY GIFT TO YOU


IN KEEPING WITH HOLIDAY TRADITIONS I'D LIKE TO SHARE WITH YOU SOMETHING I CAME UP WITH IN COLLEGE, AS A CHRISTMAS DECORATION AND CONVERSATION STARTER. WE ACTUALLY PUT THIS UP EVERY YEAR IN OUR APARTMENT(S). THIS ONE WAS MADE IN 30 SECONDS DURING OUR LAST CHRISTMAS TRIP TO FL, SO IT'S NOT THE BEST SPECIMEN EVER.


WHAT IS IT?

HINT: THE FIRST DAY OF CHRISTMAS MY TRUE LOVE GAVE TO ME......










A CARTRIDGE IN A BEAR TREE!



NOW GO MAKE YOUR OWN--I USUALLY USE A CARTRIDGE WITHOUT A PRIMER OR POWDER IN IT FOR SAFETY REASONS--THIS ONE WAS LIVE!

I ALSO USUALLY USE A FLOWER POT WITH RED OR GREEN FOIL- A BETTER DEAD TREE LIMB, AND SOME ROCKS AROUND THE TOP SOIL. JUST SET IT OUT AND WATCH PEOPLE AS THEY WALK BY IT. HOURS OF ENTERTAINMENT, UNTIL THEY FINALLY HAVE TO ASK!

DID I MENTION I COME FROM A SMALL TOWN!



LOVE YOU ALL
