One advantage of having Marcus here was we could get him to help with
this year's Christmas tree.
Since there won't be a big family gathering this year,
we intended to cut a small tree.
judging the size of a tree in the field is difficult and we wound up
with another tall tree.
it is probably a bit taller than
last year's tree
and we had to bring up the 10' ladder again.
We can't get much taller than this without placing the tree in a
different location since this one is already about to scrape the ceiling
(about 12' at this corner).
