The saddest thing I ever did see...

The saddest thing I ever did see

Was a woodpecker peckin' at a plastic tree. 

He looks at me, and "Friend", says he, 

"Things ain't as sweet as they used to be!"

-Shel Silverstein

Notice how healthy this plastic tree looks.

I have taken a lot of flack after killing my third bonsai tree.  I guess I just have not been able to give them the care they need.  My kids have teased me.  My daughter made me a bet that it would die and she won.  The kids love to remind me of how many I have killed,  but he final insult came this past week when JaNae gave me a plastic tree for my office.  I have sunk to a new low... and plastic does not provide the feng shui and zen that a real tree can provide.  Maybe once all of this cancer stuff is behind us I'll try again, but for now my office contains a dead bonsai... and a plastic one. 
Hope you are all well and happy.

This one... not so healthy...

  2. Aside from the really beautiful arrowhead sitting on the file cabinet...the plastic plant looks way better. Good call JaNae!
