I had a new idea for my bottle tree.
The bottles would all be green for the holidays, like a glass Christmas tree.
The bottles would be little Buddhas, upside down.
It would be lighted to brighten the night.
I came up short on the number of Lucky Buddha bottles. The tree was incomplete.
We searched for six-packs of Lucky Buddha in every store we visited.
I guess they were stuck on a ship in the Pacific, in one of those shipping containers.
I have been searching for other lost things since Christmas…lost ornaments and a special Wendell-August dish with snowflake designs.
As I searched, I discovered a heavy bag of glass bottles. Yes, they were Lucky Buddhas.
The tree is finally completed for 2022. We need all the luck we can get.
HAPPY 2022. Be gone 2021.
