Valentine Tree

Buon giorno. It's Valentine's Day, and I bet you guys wish you were me! But never mind about that now.

You know that I've gone on about how Christmas trees are being called "holiday trees" by the touchie-feelie politically correct crowd, even though it's not fooling anybody; we all know what those trees really are, and what they're for.

When I was listening to Glenn Beck on the radio a few years ago, he was making "holiday tree" remarks that I thought were just great. Essentially, it ran like this: "We have our holiday tree. We keep it up all year. On President's Day, we hang dollar bills on it, and we decorate it for...", and he kept going with a few other humorous quips. I'm kind of tempted to do that myself, really do a "holiday tree" all year.

The other day, I strolled into a local eatery for a breakfast supplement. I was astonished to see this:
That's right! One lady who works there was doing a real "holiday tree". As you can see, it's decorated for Valentine's Day. She gave me permission to take a picture so I can share it with the world. This tree will remain a "holiday tree" and become decorated for other holidays as well.

I think it's hilarious.

"What's your point, Cowboy Bob?"
