Today they are putting up the Christmas holiday tree in the lobby of the company where I work.  :(

'Voulez-vous, will you kiss my dick?'
Will you play my record? One-track mind!

Last night I placed the structures for my "Christmas trainyard"--a station, two houses, a church, and a general store.

Next week I'll put away my few Thanksgiving decorations and think about getting out my grandmother's ceramic Christmas decorations--and also finish the train layout.

Nice Thanksgiving lights, Chuck! All I have to decorate for Thanksgiving this year is a pile of miscellaneous pumpkins. But they're my pumpkins that I grew in my garden!!

The Thanksgiving turkey can hear sleighbells approaching quickly in the distance!!
May 2019 be better for us all.

We had a pumpkin vine once, when I was a kid. It only produced one pumpkin, and that pumpkin broke off the vine before it was matured.  :(

I did get Christmas lights, but have them stretched out on the floor, so they'll be "flat" after spending all that time in the box curled  up around each other.

Oh you Americans, for  a moment I thought you had put them up in February ;D
I will probably put my few decorations up in the house on 17-18 Dec as I fly to Australia on 19th. I did not put lights in the Rhododendron tree last year, not sure this year. It does not get dark until 10pm anyway.

This year I placed 250 lights in the blue spruce tree on the southwest corner of my property! They look great if I do say so myself!
