Every day from December 1st until Christmas I'm hanging an ornament in an outside public place as a Random Act of Christmas Cheer.
Yesterday I drove by one of the places I put an ornament earlier in the month and noticed that the tree was still adorned. Today the ornament was gone. We didn't have any severe weather overnight that would have blown it off, so I'm not sure what happened to it. Wouldn't it be wonderful if someone who didn't have ornaments for their personal tree saw it and gave it a new home (or passed it on to someone else who needed it)?
My last stop today was at a county park with a nice paved walking trail. The mature tree branches by the trail were too tall for me to reach, but I found a newly-planted tree next to the parking lot that I think was improved with a splash of red.

Or a child took it for his mother. Or a fellow took it for his girlfriend. Or....some other romantic thing.ReplyDelete
It's a good time of the year to think of romantic ideas.Delete
interesting the ornament was gone, and it is very close to Christmas now.ReplyDelete
Gone, hopefully to a good place.Delete
Maybe a little squirrel snagged it to bring home to his honey bunny for xmas.ReplyDelete
If so it would have been fun to see him running away with the string between his teeth :-)Delete
Yes, SO improved with that splash of red. The missing ornament? It's hanging from the most prominent limb on the Charlie Brown tree in his girlfriend's apartment. She's over the moon with excitement that he chose it with such insightful care.ReplyDelete
I LIKE your thinking! Wonder if he told her the story of finding the ornament or kept her in the dark.Delete
