So you all know that I live full-time in a 40-foot trailer.
On the plus side, there's not a lot to clean.
On the negative side, there's not a lot of room.
So for that reason alone I don't have any Christmas decorations. (They are all in storage.)
This is how I FEEL about not having any Christmas decorations.
Well, until our Block Captain asked if we wanted to participate in decorating our site like the majority of people on our block by purchasing these lights:
Maybe it wouldn't be so bad if we didn't have a streetlight right next door to us. It glares down upon our site and drowns out our little lights.
Then there are our neighbors across from us. They didn't want any part of these stinkin' lights.
Nope. They had their OWN decorations.
Think along the lines of the movie "Christmas Vacation".
Okay, so MAYBE I exaggerate a lee-tle bit.
But not much.
They have a big motor coach bus. It is strewn with Christmas lights, they have red hats on both side mirrors, and a stable out front.
I almost get blinded when I walk by their place at night.
Our little lights are put to shame. They are lined up in a row in front of our trailer.
I feel like taking them and just spelling out the word "DITTO" and point an arrow facing my neighbors.
But I DID find something that can OUTDO them for next year.
Heck, it can outdo the WHOLE PARK.
It's a 2-STORY REINDEER!!
YOU HEARD ME!!
Although this photo makes it look bigger with little KIDS running in front of it, it really IS 2 stories tall!
Imagine the awe!
Imagine the jealously!
Imagine us parking Big Blue between the reindeer's legs!
Oh, this could be fun!
I wonder how this sucker doesn't blow away? And isn't that the thing you blow into up there on the thigh? How the heck? (scrambling through papers, reading....a hah, a hah)
Oh. Never mind.
Comes with a fan to inflate it. Hee hee.
This costs $350, but I bet there's a GREAT markdown after Christmas! AND, how small do you think I could fold this sucker? Would it fit in a shoe box?
(Yelling to Jim) Honey, I got a GREAT idea for next Christmas!!
I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year! I am off for a two week visit to colder climates to visit family for the holidays. This blog will be closed during that time.
See ya next year!
