“I wonder why they haven’t decorated their tree.”
Looking up from my paper, I answered. “What?”
“The neighbors. They put their tree up a few days ago but haven’t decorated it.”
“Don’t know” and returned to my paper.
Walking my dog a few days later, I saw there was a collection of vehicles from the police, the sheriff and the ambulance in front of the neighbor’s house. Standing there by the police tape, I saw four heavy black plastic bags come out.
“I guess that explains why they didn’t decorate.” I said to no one in particular.
