Skunk: 1; Christmas Tree: 0

So I got an email this morning from fosteronfilm with the subject “Famous last words” reading:

The Germans can never attack through the Arden.
The Hindenburg will work fine on hydrogen.
The Christmas tree will be perfectly safe from Hobkin on the lower speaker.

The last sentence being, of course, foolishly uttered by me this weekend as we were putting up our Xmas decorations. Seems this morning, while I was at work and Matthew was asleep, the fuzzwit pulled some ornaments down, turning one into so much Styrofoam confetti, and terrorized a wooden mouse.

We’ll be moving that tree higher . . .

    The story old enough to eat solid food… Congratulations!

    re Hobkin: No matter what it was, we learned that presents do not belong on the floor, the skunks would kindly open them for us.

    Whoot! On the sales!
    And… HobkinX2=Maggie and Artie. We *gasp* bought a real tree, today. I do think it’s the little wezlette we’re going to have to worry about, though. She picks up on imaging like 1080i. Maybe I’ll put it up on the front porch?
