Last night to my suprise I discovered a small pocket of illuminated houses a few streets away. Although now I think about it, I had noticed the outline of an unwired Santa in the second storey of a house on the corner earlier in the year. I thought it was some quirk. But no - it's a whole colony of santas down there- on skis, in chimneys, shooting the breeze in pairs on the porch. Unlike Ivanhoe, happily there was no crowd, a few kids on scooters among the low audience figures chatting casually with the owner-operators of the show, in the spotlight of a well known front lawn.
Comments: close local lights
I would love to see the illuminated houses without the crowd, Boynton.
Could you tell me where they are?

I saw a blow up Santa the other day on a roof top it looked like he'd been impaled on a pole. Ha I smiled - I love a sense of humour and then I realised he was probably supposed to have been supported by the pole and that he had possibly been pierced by a well aimed dart. Ha I smiled a bit tragic but I love a sense of humour.
Christmas schmissmass! I want no part of it. I had Silent F@#$!#@$% Night running through my head today. I also got my Christmas card and this time the faithful sender of said Christmas card didn't bother with the Dear blah de blah bit, just signed off seasons greetings from etc. So, I addressed it to the house hold, very easily done just fill in the blank spot at the top of the card where the persons name USUALLY GOES. And voila now we all have a card.

I see Christmas stress seems to be affecting people allready. Some of my neighbours have got Santas which are similar to garden gnomes.

Link - some of the local Santas had a definite lean - maybe prevaling winds or something in the soil.
A great card story...Dear oh Dear oh Dear...
I noticed that some of those Santas might indeed be perennials, Andy. As it is that outline of the Santa graces the upstairs window all year - we're talking serious advent there.
btw - welcome back!

When I go to my brother's place next week and I lazily sit around and sup his fine fare and hog his zippy computer and watch dvds on his wonderful setup and he doesn't tell me the secret ingredient in his pistachio pesto when I ask, I think I'll remember to thank him anyway for providing my sustenance and entertainment and try not to get irate about inconsequential minutiae.
