He just absolutely loved it at first sight, I think we have found a Christmas present for him.

Here he is hugging it:


In case any of you don't know my 5 year old loves nutcrackers, he has a small collection but he is always wanting to add more.
The ornament doesn't fall far from the Christmas tree.
you definitely have to get it for him!

I'm busy because we have our annual trade fair tomorrow. Each year we invite as many manufacturer to have stands at the fair, to advertise their newest products. The fair is popular with our customer (specially because we also have a party after the fair with free food and drinks for everyone). The week before the fair and the one after is always very busy. I'll relieved once the fair is over.
I love going to events like that. Hope it all goes well and you have a good time.

Good Morning, 'Pines Personages.

Yes, hard though it may be to believe, we are once again at mid-week and (hopefully) bound for another -- um -- interesting visit to the Shispering Pines.
Next week's open house deals with Halloween of course, so things today are a bit laid back. The lul before the storm, so to speak.
(That doesn't mean Carl won't make it memorable, of course!)

This is also memorable:
Days to Halloween: 8 (ONE WEEK from tomorrow!)
Days to the Season: 21 (Three weeks from today!)
Days to Christmas Day: 63 (Nine weeks from today!)
(Wow! These figures are starting to get frightening.)

Still cool, but hanging on to comfortable weather until Friday.
Then, the mercury drops and we get an early taste of winter!
We stand just under 60 degrees here at this hour.

Have a Wonderful Wednesday, Folks.
See you at the 'Pines!

Yep.
Here they are:
Day 5 before the Season (Nov. 08) = Made
Day 4 before the Season (Nov. 09) = Binger
Day 3 before the Season (Nov. 10) = Christmasstar
Day 2 before the Season (Nov. 11) = Ballcoach
Day 1 before the Season (Nov. 12) = Xmas 365


[ Of course, if anyone has something special they wish to say, they can feel free!
The list is just the official assigned positions to be sure we have a special post for each of the five days before the Season. ]

It's hard to tell, but the orange leaves are covered in snow:
