suddenly gets an idea
begins fiddling with the straps of the harness, and fastens them around the trunk of the Christmas tree
Remember the cathedral ceiling? Well, whoever cut this Christmas tree must have kept it in mind- it's a biiiiig one this year.
begins pulling on straps of the trapeze harness, and the 20 foot silver fir begins to lift into the air...
pushing the tree (along with several bystanding mudcatters) into the vicinity of the tree stand, lowers it down onto the base and leaves the harness on just to make sure it doesn't fall over
