The Christmas Ladder

The Christmas Ladder

Relatively good news, everyone. Linda survives. Minor concussion, with dizziness, fatigue, and blurry vision symptoms. Her biggest complaint is of a stiff neck. While not the best of Christmas presents, given how serious her icy fall could have been, I think we should all be grateful that it wasn’t worse.

So, until Linda’s symptoms abate sufficiently, I’ll try to keep her EDDD alive.

Right. The image. You may be witnessing the first ever Christmas ladder. Someone who is a working Mom and whose husband has been away on business got fed up with the commercialized nature of Christmas. So she said to heck with it, not going out to buy another tree, what do I have on hand?

Voila. Thus is born the Christmas ladder. A new tradition. If she had been a known artist, the Art Museum of Canada would have paid millions (of taxpayers’ money) to buy it and put it on display.

What are your thoughts on this new Christmas tradition?

  16. Reblogged this on The Mirror and commented:

    Linda is experiencing dizziness, blurred vision, fatigue, and a very sore neck. Considering how serious a concussion can be, all I can say is thank God for small blessings. Hopefully she’ll be back to blogging soon and in full health.
