I'm a Canadian Man

I have duct tape and I'm not afraid to use it.

UPDATE - A helpful Christmas decorating hint from Larry the Cucumber for the 11th day before Christmas (click on the Larry's Christmas Countdown button).


After hunting and gathering the annual Christmas tree (with the help of the family at, um, Extra Foods), I realized that I forgot to bring the tie-down straps. In order to subdue the beast, I resorted to the Universal Canadian Alternative.

Ha!

I got our tree at Canadian Tire, but I didn't use duct tape. I guess that's because I'm not a man.

Good one! Red Green would be proud.

I affectionately call it "200 mile per hour tape."

I've heard that you speed-crazed Americans call it that (maybe I read it in "Hot Rod" years ago).

Of course I could go 200 mph in my Suburban with duct tape over the holes up front, but I hate cleaning the gummy stuff off of the chrome.

Oh that's cool. You taped the tree together, but then in a completely separate project you wove rope out of the grey stuff.

In what ways have you incorporated duct tape into the actual decorations?

Stay tuned for the decorations ...

Naw, I'm bluffing. I'm really not handy - my wife already finds me handsome!

Hot glue guns are the woman's version of duct tape.
