Christmas is Coming

waaaay too fast if you ask me!  I hate years when Thanksgiving falls on the fourth Thursday of November.  It's like a week gets taken away from us before Christmas.  So much for my good plans to design a Christmas card for the folks who have purchased my art work in the past - guess it will  be a New Year's card!  I'm also going to give them a small print of some new work I'm doing based on the photos I took up at the Gladding McBean Pottery in Lincoln.

The Sweet Hubby did get lights up on the house and make a tree out of pvc pipe and wire and lights for the front lawn.  Now it would make just too much sense if I posted a photo of that here, so I'm not going to do that.  In the email box to day were too funny as hell photos that I don't know who took.  If you're one of the photographers for this, please let me know so I can credit you!

You really have to admire the chutzpah of  the Ditto neighbor.

There's a story that goes with this one:

"Good news is that I truly out did myself this year with my Christmas  decorations. The bad news is that I had to take him down after 2 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 75 pound ladder 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). By the way, 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."
