The tricky buttressing stage…

Often a lengthy and inelegant process, ripe for arguments, as nominated tree putter-uppers attempt to find that critical point at which the tree attains perfect verticality and then swiftly apply anchoring mechanisms (usually consisting of a succession of different tactics, beginning with hopelessly inept and progressing to the just-about-successful) to make it stay that way. Advent Mouse here demonstrating one of the earlier, less triumphant attempts.

(Disclaimer: The use of drawing pins as a securing device for a Christmas Tree is not endorsed by the writer and should not be attempted – unless, perhaps, they are enormous drawing pins, comparable with the scale [of pin-to-mouse] shown here, and you’re not particularly precious about your living room carpet.)
