My Grandfather made a latch hook tree skirt, and I still have it. This year I put it out. Before I put the stuffed animals around the drum table. Scout LOVED the rug. When I put the animals on it, he got very upset. He would thump me, walk over to the pile and look at me. He did this several times before I caught on. Stupid Human. I cleared a space for him and he has very happily slept there ever since.
