Bubba Gets Ready For Christmas
We will pause in Bubba’s account of his travels on Route 66 to reflect on his preparation for the upcoming Christmas celebration.
I am ready for the Christmas blitz. The first thing I wanted to do was put up a million lights around the house. I got a big box down from the attic. Last year they were all carefully wound, stored, and put away for the next year. When I opened the box, I saw the mischievous elves had been at work and all the lights were in disarray. I hear that happens in everyone’s house. I jumped right in to untangle the mess.
I then took my axe and headed out into the woods to chop down the traditional tree. It was a little heavy and that sharp bit was not too pleasant. It was cold so I put on a knit cap and found an axe.
I found the tree I was looking for and an axe I could really handle and started chopping.
After about twenty minutes of chopping, I managed to cut it down and drag it back home.
There was already a tree in the house and I walked around it meeting some interesting people.
Next it was time to wrap presents. I gathered wrapping paper, bows, and ribbon and set to work. It took all day but I managed to make a neat and tidy package.
Maybe I can get a job as a professional wrapper.
Our next surprise for Bubba is a trip to see the big jolly guy in the red suit.
