I started a new blog project: Colonel Tiny Road to Christmas Tree at http://coloneltiny.blogspot.com/. Everybody's welcome to see and comment!
It did happened exactly as described: I was putting down the Christmas tree and accidentally left one wooden hussar behind. I didn't want to get back and unpack again a huge box with Christmas decoration just for this little thing and I decided to keep him and make him a witness of my whole year - at least until I put the next Christmas tree up. So, let's see how it will go. Wish me luck!
