Sentimental Sunday The Hero and Cutting a Christmas Tree
old 1953 Chevy I wrote about before.) He tied the trunk down to hold it in place and we drove 45 miles back to my apartment to set it up. (Great big grin on my face right now) As we took it inside, the size of the tree, which had seemed reasonable earlier, was overwhelmingly large. In height it was okay, but in width...a wee bit big; as in, if it wasn't trimmed, you could not see the couch. After some adjustment, it turned out fine.
For years we would look back at that trip and giggle at the thought of the Hero chopping, maybe hacking, the tree top of a pine tree. Now grandchildren, you see your granddadE was an awesome man who went to lengths to make me happy.
