This looks rather painful.

        1. Haha ๐Ÿ˜† They’re not actually selling it, I put it in a wrong way; it’s a close-up of an empty stand at the market-place. On the other hand, during Christmas time they do sell remainders of branches, in fact waste that remains after they make advent wreaths and such.


          1. An excellent question. I don’t know! Either for firewood or for decoration — some people would put the stray branches in vases, perhaps decorate it instead of or along with their Christmas tree. I just found it ridiculous that anyone would dare to sell waste…


        1. No problem, I was just kidding, but of course, you couldn’t tell that when I didn’t even put a smiley face in the comment ๐Ÿ˜‰ Sure, we all have our splinter accidents…

          Now you made me recall my husband’s accident as a kid, which I obviously didn’t see but can vividly imagine: he stepped on a rake (or something else this ridiculous) and drove the iron spike through his foot. Eek!


          1. Of course, smiley is king!!

            That sounds seriously painful, and I can’t even imagine the pain he felt when that happened! Can he still walk?


          2. You’re right, it must’ve been shocking. Fortunately, my husband had a full recovery — kids can survive anything! — and has no permanent consequences. ๐Ÿ™‚
