People that know me know that I am always try to do something I should get help with. I am not very tall, only 5' 2'', so I decide to put up this 7'6" tree by myself. You know the type too impatient to wait for help. Finally I managed to get all the part together. The tree was in the stand and miracle of miracle I got all the light working. Being rather pleased with my handy work I was down on my knees putting the tree skirt around the tree, when the whole tree feel on top of me. Thinking not so merry Christmas thoughts I scrambled from under the tree. Since the tree was still in one piece I decide I would try to stand that 71/2foot monster back up and tighten the screws on the stand. wow! It was done. I looked a little worst for wear. Finally all of the ornaments and tinsel were in place. The tree was firmly standing by the fireplace and all was well.
