Pin It


Pine Cone Madness!

My mother has a very tall tree made out of pine cones. Coincidentally, Southeastern Guide Dogs wants every puppy to experience pine cones, as decorations. So, mom's massive, gold spray-painted, pine cone tree is the perfect way to get Her Royal Highness the ultimate pine cone, as decoration, experience.

First, I have to ask Dad to bring the massive tree out of the attic because this year Mom didn't use it as a Christmas decoration, which he did gladly.

Once it was set up, I had to get HRH to go sit by it.

"What, that? What is that?"

"I'll sit by it, but I won't look at it. Nasty, gold, ostentatious tree. How horrible."

"OK. I'll look at it. Awful. Just awful."

"Please let me sit somewhere else. Away from this gold monstrosity."


  1. Love, love, love your blog! My hubby & I raised our first BLF who went IFT in November. You keep us laughing. Thanks for sharing your journeys. Happy New Year!

  2. The Royal Highness is quite smart as I too try to stay away from gold pine cones!
