# 147-THURSDAY'S THERAPY (Comments on #83 O Christmas Tree... ...)
I love reading people's comments. Therefore, I have decided to pick a comment each Thursday to post. Of course this will fall FLAT if you guys aren't making comments!This is no longer an issue. In fact, I have so many wonderful comments to choose from that I am having a hard time keeping up. THANK YOU! ALL OF YOU!
(And yet another change. I decided to rename this meme THURSDAY'S THERAPY because I consider this blog to be therapy for me as your comments keep me going! Also, since I have been getting so many comments I am going to do several of the comments on a particular post, again.)
My family had one of those silver foil trees and the rotating circle of colored lights illuminating it. I thought it was really great. clenna said...
My mother was so proud when she bought a silver tree. We all thought she'd lost her mind. And those rotating color lights - ugh! My first year married we got a real tree - scrawny tree. (all that we could afford). The water stand broke the first day, so we just leaned it against the wall. Do you know that a year later we were still finding pine needles in the carpet (last year that I had a real one!)
I just looked them up! They are now termed "vintage" or "retro" and a 7 ft tree with a color wheel cost $675.00!
Having raised baby birds . . . I know what you are talking about! You know what . . . I absolutely hated those silver Christmas trees. Thanks for visiting my blog . . . I'm partial to the squirrel cartoon too :) Have an awesome day . . . Gina
How funny! I had a parakeet named Kiki. She was sweet and I often took her from her cage and she would walk all over me and perch on my shoulder and make all sorts of little 'talky' noises at me. I started working a lot, so I got her a friend. Another parakeet, Coco. Coco turned out to be evil and made my Kiki evil, too. Where once I had a sweet bird that loved to 'groom' me, I ended up with 2 that tried to peck my eyes out. One day when I was cleaning the cage, they both pecked me up badly and then got out of the cage. I used to kill myself trying to catch them, this time I didn't even flinch when the flew out the door when the kids came in from playing. I know, I am bad!
Found you on the blog hop! I'm your newest follower!
Well, I guess I didn't live up to their expectations because I just checked and I have not heard from them again. This is why I call this post Thursday's "Therapy." This is helping mt to learn to live with stuff like "rejection". I have also learned that there are a lot of wonderful strangers out there who accepts this looney lady just as I she is! kt 3/2011
