Christmas Tree cutting

Dad was dreading the Christmas Tree U-Cut tradition this year because both his wife and Eleanor like to commune with the trees. It takes hours to find the right one and usually it’s the first tree the family saw 16 hours before. But this time, dad was prepared. He packed a tent and enough provisions for a three night stay. Eleanor loved it and had a great time. So did mom. Dad lovingly trudged behind with a hopeful saw waiting for the right tree to come along. Every once in a while he desperately pointed to a tree and said “this one’s great, what about this one?”
Eventually Eleanor and Grandma G had trees picked out and we were all able to go home.
