    That is a really beautiful tree, Joe. So many different ornaments. I bet it took a long time to collect all of those, and a long time to put it up.

    I have a box with one just like this one. I'm afraid to touch those, they are so old and fragile.

    They don't do much good sitting in the box. Ha!

    We kept the yard simple this year. The green & red skirting is able to stand on it's own.

    We always finish off the tree with candy canes. We forgot again, and Mary hung them yesterday. We added some cherry ones to the usual peppermint .

    My Sister, Kate, sent me a video of an old Christmas Bell Telephone TV broadcast.

    What makes it Star Trek related is very awesome USS Enterprise float that is 57 feet long, 22 feet wide, 14 feet tall and made of 52,000 lights.
