Then I took it home. Set it up. Put water in it. Put the lights on and turned the decoration hanging up to my wife and son.

I kept our new puppy Rocky from climbing it. She was bursting with excitement and it was so cute watching her reaction to her first Christmas tree. So far so good. Everyone seems happy with it.

My wife's family used to go out to a cedar hammock along the Savannah River to collect their ERC Christmas trees. We buy our's now from local tree farmers to help support them. Christmas tree farming has become a dying business here. The farmers say because it doesn't get as cold as it used to. We've always prefered live trees even with occasional needle drop. That's easy to clean up once the tree comes down.

Does seem like it would be hard to make a living farming Christmas Trees Pat. Iím sure they appreciate your support .

Give it a try Bob. I donít look for the ďperfect treeĒ   I look for a nice main tree that has a nice top. It can be thin on the bottom. Then I fill in the bottom with branches .

I caught this guy checking out my bows in the man cave. Sure was a Jolly fellow

Iíll put a word in for you Pappy. Iím pretty sure Iíll be seeing him again in the next few days.

If you keep a lookout for him you might even spot him yourself. Seems like he really gets around this time of year

Made it to the New Year. Been doing inventory, financial statements, tax preparation etc. all that stuff Iím not so good at and really donít want to spend time getting good at. It has to be done though.

Been working in shop too.


Today I was working on computer when my nephew said come here, you gotta see this.

It must be that week. Every year around this time mating season for the red fox keeps them roaming around in the daytime.

A pair were running around our farm buildings and barking up a storm. It was really fun watching them.

Donít know if you can see them. I should have gotten better pictures but I didnít have my phone at first.

That's cool BJ ! Haven't seen or heard a Fox (Red or Grey) around Me in Years. Coyotes ran them all off sadly. Bob

Was the same around here for years Bob. They have really made a nice comeback though. I think they are less afraid of people than they are of coyotes. They really seem to have their territory closer to people now and I often see them laying on peoples lawns and hear lots of stories about people having them hanging around their buildings.

Iím sure glad to see them having good numbers again. They are my favorite animals to watch. They are not only beautiful. They are comical and entertaining the way they run around, hunt and play

Nice pictures BJ, they were gone from here for a while, use to see them all the time when I was a kid but when the coyotes showed up they seemed to disappear, but are making a come back now, as you said seems they are staying closer to people, probably figured out it was safer for them, :-\ have a pair in my back yard area, they have a small litter /4 or 5 pups every year for the last few years, fun to watch. :)

Wow no snow, almost like what we have here.  Almost lost all our snow last week from rain and warm weather.

Plenty of fox here
