Smokey knocks down Christmas tree

Tragedy struck the home of Ted and Nancy Tanner early today (Friday) when their Christmas tree toppled over and landed on their two year old son Timmy.  Smokey, the Tanner’s curious cat, scaled the 8 foot pine shortly after breakfast causing the tree to fall on young Timmy, who was playing nearby.  The Tanners calmed Timmy’s frayed nerves, cleaned up the debris and banished Smokey from the family room.
