This is the fourth year for Osbasso (he who began the HNT blogger movement) to suggest a "Christmas Tree" theme for HNT, or Half-Nekkid Thursday. It's always fun to try to dance to a particular theme.
In past years I've already done some fun and interesting Christmas tree shots, mostly of reflections in a Christmas ornament, usually with strategically placed fixtures blocking the naughty bits. Yes, this was back when I was young and risque (ie, before I turned 40 and became the mature, serious and responsible adult I am today . . . okay, it was hard to type that with a straight face)
In any case, in celebration of the HNT Christmas Tree theme, I give you the Markie Brown Christmas Tree . . .
Please hold your applause -- I know my "photo chopping" skills are absolutely stunning -- you can barely see the "seams" of this picture, and I know it's so good that some of you are wondering HOW Charles Schulz drew my face onto Charlie Brown's -- but I have to be honest here and admit this is a faked picture where I put my face over Charlie Brown's -- look closely and you might be able to see it (again, having trouble typing this with a straight face)
