THE Christmas Ornament

This is one of my all-time favorite ornaments, given to me by my lovely daughter Jessica, who said, when I opened the little package on Christmas morning a few years back: “Dad, it is so YOU!” My blank look cracked her up. It’s the only ornament my grown-up “kids” will let me place on the tree.

What is it? It’s a carefully lacquered and skillfully decorated, real, honest-to-goodness moose turd. Jess brought it back for me from one of her many trips to Alaska. I am a very lucky man.

I was inspired to post this by the Northwest Frame of Mind (nwframeofmind.com) blog. Visit them and you’ll see why.
