Usually this time of year, this is the kind of tree I am gazing at! We generally have a few bucking horses we take down to Vegas for the NFR Benny Binnion Bucking horse sale. But this year we decided all our hopefuls needed (at least) one more year to grow up. So we decided to stay home. (Link to last year’s trip.)
Which means, even though my house is crawling with puppies, and kittens and kiddos, my family still thinks we need a Christmas tree.
Now don’t get me wrong, I am not a total Scrooge, but c’mon it is an awful lot of work to put up a tree and decorate and everything - only to have to bring it all down again in a matter of weeks!
But alright - after a tree we shall be!
We headed down the highway only to discover problem #1. A rock stuck in the duals.
