Puts me to mind of "The Great Christmas Tree Hunt" My buddy Stan and I always went out on the sleds "hunting" Xmas Trees. This one night MANY MANY years ago we were out on the sleds searching for the perfect tree with the obligatory thermos of Liquid Rum Balls. Well after a couple of hours it got dark, we had yet to find a tree so we decided to cut across country and head home. Well we broke out on a hill top and there below was a meadow with the perfect tree standing there. It was a scene from Christmas Vacation.

Down we roar, cut the tree down and as I was strapping the tree to the skimmer Stan hollers race you back and off he goes. I hear a thump and Stan says I hit a rock help me get the sled off it. I walk over and start trying to free the back end when I hear Come here you need to see this. Well I look and he is hung up not on a rock but a headstone, apparently we ad got turned around and the "Meadow" was really the local grave yard. Needles to say we got out of there in one heck of a rush.

Lol! My grandparent's homestead was across the road from 2 cemeteries and a church which
were on a Indigenous Reserve comprising of varied woods.. All 3 were very seldom visited
although the lawns etc were mowed. Bear, deer, grouse and pigeons frequented them....and a
certain armed grandfather and his grandson did as well.:don't tell anyone: :rolleyes:

That picture reminds me of a special bow....
My grandparents had a small homestead, raising my mother, adjacent to a reserve.
The families living on the reserve and my family were great friends. The Chief spent
a long time making a special yew wood bow with cedar arrows for my mom when she
was a pre-teen. It had carvings along the hand grip area. Unfortunately it was destroyed
along with many heirlooms when the house collapsed into rubble from the weight of excessive
snow. My family had just moved into their new house not far from the original one so no
one was hurt but I imagine that bow would be a real special treasure today if it was still around.
