Truly Original Christmas Decorations...

Fantastic.  Greg sends along this DIY FYI:

"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."
My sister-in-law emailed this to me and by time I finished reading it I couldn't stop laughing.  I really don't like putting up lights up outdoors... but this?  Yeah, I could see my husband doing this.


  1. ROFL!! I would *SO* do that! I have threatened Mrs. Who with something along the lines of this, maybe with a waving lighted Santa with a hunting rifle standing next to his tropy. :)

  2. LOVE that one. he he... and yes, it's SICK... but gawd.. it's funny folks! I can understand the cops though. can you imagine how many 911 calls to the police/fire department there would be??


  3. BR - I have often seen many variations on that picture but they still make me laugh.

    LAW - Yes, I know it's sick, but man, I just can't help myself. Since the assistant fire chief for our town lives across the street and 2 more firemen within walking distance... we'd never get away with it for long and I'd like to keep a good healthy relationship with my neighbors. (Even if most of them are deer, moose and bear)
