In 1990 my husband befriended a squirrel who greeted him every evening after work. This little squirrel is commemorated here in this Christmas Tree stump carving. His name is Napoleon.

My world is a wonder of visual candy and foreboding shadow shapes vying every waking moment for my full attention.

  1. How nice that a Christmas tree has a life after Christmas. And in such a wonderful way. Your husband’s carvings are stunning. They have a very clear artistic expression. The squirrel does look very cute.

  2. … And the stories attached to them make it all the more sweeter. They will be heirlooms someday. Thank you for sharing these family memories of yours.
