Christmas Cheer?

“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.
