And on the 85th day of Christmas ...
Up Thursday Nov. 24! Down today, the *first* chance to do it, what with dealing with Mama ER's troubles and all. Man.
Down next: the tree! Ice-T will be heartbroken!
Brudder ER said Mama ER was fully awake most of this morning, still trying to talk, or make sounds anyway. And, he said the respiratory people say her lungs are just dang near clear. She's on a bit of oxygen just every once in a while, he said.
It seem like a waste of energy to take it down when it could serve all year.
In fact perhaps instead of changing out ornaments for each holiday just leave them all on as you put them there and just add to them. After 12 months you would have the perfect tree. A tree, if you please, for all seasons.
The basic idea is to create a built in "closet" or freestanding cabinet with the Hexagon on a lazy susan turntable. Each holiday or season would have a compartment of its own. Each compartment would have two doors opening out away from the compartment thus obscuring the closet or cabinet behind it. The doors would have a recess of 4 to 5 inches and the wedged shaped area of the hexagon and the doors would be backed with mirrors. Thus you could construct a folding christmas tree or any other like item or scene in each compartment of the revolving hexagon. So when a holiday came around you just turn the all season hexagon to the appropriate doors and open them back and there you have a three dimensional fully formed seaonal display. No holiday current, then simply close the hexagon up and it becomes just another closet door or freestanding item of furniture.
