Christmas Tree Bargain

The true spirit of the season: Getting a great deal on a Christmas Tree.



We bought a beautiful 8-foot Silver Tip Tree for less than $45 at Tom's Tree lot -- in Anderson, on North St, between Highway 5 and Stingy Ln. Located next to North Street Espresso at 2780 North St, Anderson.



We've poured champagne, we're listening to the Charlie Brown Christmas Cd on the stereo -- and we're decorating the tree. Well - some of us are decorating -- and some of us are playing Texas Hold 'em.

Not exactly Norman Rockwell, but probably as close as we can hope to get.

Eleven months out of the year, our owl, Drosselmeyer, sits in our entry hall. During December, he watches over the festivities from the top of our Christmas Tree:

Erin - That's a very sweet and very funny story (the owl and Texas Hold'em made me laugh).
Congrats on your tree. (Just so you know, Christmas trees will also be sold in "downtown" Igo Dec. 6 from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.; a benefit for the Igo/Ono/Trinity Alps Preserve Neighborhood Watch ... same day as the Igo Christmas Parade.
