Well, it’s up.

December 6, 2017


Happy Birthday, Mark!

This year I didn’t put the Advent candles up in the windows in the commons. I put that window film up there in the summer and I didn’t want to mess with figuring it all out again. That’s ok. Someone donated an eight-foot tree last year and it took several days of ‘help’ from the children, but it’s finally up. Not well, but it’s up.


It will be a bear to take down. Future me is already mad at me.

    The tree is lovely! Taking down the tree -- that’s a job for the college volunteers, right?

    The sign to Bethlehem -- can you enlarge it? I wanted to read your comment on it.

      It says ‘Bethlehem 6,577 miles (as the crow flies)’. I am grateful for the internet!

      Rachel, that is a good idea, except this thing would never fit in the elevator. It is monstrous. 🙂

    Why take the tree apart? You have an elevator and lots of storage. Take it down in one piece, throw a sheet over it, and next year… vwah lah! You have a beautiful tree with no set up! (BTW, i have no idea how to spell vwah lah)
