I just made a big mistake, Billie.
I should have just left her to enjoy her holidays.
It was a bad idea to put her up in a room full of trees, but I’m not a tree person, and I couldn’t resist the temptation.
The tree I’ve been given is an oak tree with white feathers and a crown on top.
I’m happy to have the crown on the tree.
It’s so pretty, I can’t imagine how I’m going to use it.
Billie is a big tree aficionado.
She’s a big fan of her grandmothers, and she loves her aunt, a big-brained lady.
I thought I was going to get a tree.
Then she started asking me questions about it.
I was like, “No, Bill, this is for your grandmothers.”
She’s the one who was born in 1903.
“What do you mean?”
“You know, your aunt used to grow trees for your grandparents.”
Billie said she thought my grandmothers might have died when I was little, but that she thought the tree was for her.
“Why do you think it’s for my grandmother?”
Billies response: She just likes the look of it.
“And if you could, you would have it up in the house and have your grandparents do all the work.”
The tree is made out of pine cones, which is one of the prettiest things I’ve ever seen.
It looks like it could be made of anything.
And the feathers are so pretty.
Bill is a fan of Billie’s grandmothers.
She likes that she got a crown.
I have to say, the tree has really impressed me.
I love the tree!
Billie and I are planning to build the tree ourselves.
We’re hoping to decorates it with the same sort of festive holiday decorations you can find at a tree shop.
We plan to decorinate the tree with Christmas lights, decorations, and even a picture of a Santa Claus.
