Zelda, the Christmas sheep, was a present years ago from my stylish youngest sister.She certainly looks sturdy and robust, doesn’t she. (Not to mention stylish, with her starry cap, and red ribbon, and four ruby shoes!)
But she’s more delicate than she looks. Last week, mysteriously, she fell from her perch under the miniature Christmas tree and broke a leg. A dextrous friend took Zelda home and operated with Elmer’s glue (or some such substance) and returned her a week later, mended, although not perhaps quite as good as new.
So we’ve been babying her, extra careful not to jostle the tree or its table. After all, Christmas wouldn’t be the same without our delicate Zelda!
(Do you have a favorite ornament? One, without which, Christmas wouldn’t quite be complete? Tell us!)
