2012 ended with a great big bang. Literally. A bang that had my kids running from the back yard to the front, and me dashing from the house to the driveway in just my socks and T-shirt to see what on earth had just happened outside!
I slipped across the ice ridden steps outside, hastily throwing a coat around my shoulders and armed with my phone, preparing to call 911. The BANG had been startling, my girls excited voices screaming for Mommy to “Hurry up” was making me start to shake. What I found was my Hubby cursing a blue stream and shaking his head.
He was looking at this…
What? Can’t you tell what that is?
Maybe this will help.
Still can’t tell? Well, it was an Angel. An Angel that should have been gracing the tree top of my BROTHER IN LAWS Christmas tree. You see, he received this little beauty as a Christmas gift, but instead of taking it home to grace his own treetop, he thought it would be super funny idea to leave it in a tree next to our driveway. Problem is, Mother Nature had other ideas. This particular Angel apparently wasn’t meant to be on an outside tree. It just didn’t have the “gripping power” required to hang on when we got walloped by wind and snow shortly after Christmas Day.
I figure the course of events went something like this.
Brother in Law gets super bright man idea.
Funny guy puts Angel in tree.
Snow and wind hit tree.
Tree rejects Angel.
Angel hit ground.
Snow Blower got good and bunged up by Angel.
Hubby gets mad.
Good news, Hubby fixed the mower and mad doesn’t really last long with Hubby.
Well good news for Brother In Law, there is no good news for the Angel.
