I think dogs are the most amazing creatures; they give unconditional love.

For me they are the role model for being alive.

Christmas decorations


(click the picture for more/better detail)

Well, there is good news and bad news about my Christmas decorations.

The good news is that I truly outdid myself this year.

The bad news is that I had to take them down after only two days.

I had more people come screaming up to my house than ever. Great stories.

But two things made me take it down. First, the cops advised me that it would cause traffic accidents as they almost wrecked when they drove by. Second, a 55 year old lady grabbed the ladder and almost killed herself putting it against my house and didn't realize it was fake until she climbed to the top (she was not happy). She was one of many people who attempted to do that. My yard couldn't take it either. I have more than a few tire tracks where people literally drove up my yard.

I think I made him too real this time . But it was fun while it lasted.

My brother sent me this, I thought it was hysterical!

I like your self of humor! That's kind of funny that your neighbors stopped to help. At least you know they'd help if something happened. Plan B for decor??

That was so funny, I showed my kids. I thought it was real at first. I laughed like crazy.
I would love to try that, but my neighbors would go nuts on me!!!

Ok, just want to clear this up... I didn't do this (yet) My brother sent it to me in an email. I am working on a santa to hang like that from the roof, though...anything to keep me from the paper work I am supposed to be doing!!!

That made us laugh out loud.. thanks for that. Hugs GJ x

Sam said...

LOL! Wow. That's horribly funny, but I understand why it could be scary. Too funny about the old lady climbing up.

Norwood, It's not my house, I received it in an email. I am now, however, making a santa clause to hang off the roof in that position! the header is my back yard... I'd lke it better if it was lake Waushacum.

Khyra, see my reply to Norwood, and thanks!

Tula, see my reply to Norwood

Deborah, glad you and the kids enjoyed it. laughter is wonderful and we don't get enough!

Wizz, it cracked me up, too!

GJ, always happy to share some laughter.

Sam, I know, right??? Watch for updates on my hanging Santa Claus...
