John sent this picture out to the family today. How Christmasy! Last year Monty nearly wrecked the car turning around to take pictures of a similar setup on the outskirts of Pittsburg, Kansas. Friends, when I am under anesthesia in couple of weeks, please keep an eye on the men in my life and don’t let them get any brilliant decorating ideas while I am incapacitated!
This is the same bunch who wanted to hang the dismembered head of a Christmas-light reindeer on the side of the house. And, when they were younger, inserted the Teenaged Mutant Ninja Turtles into the creche and began a war between the turtles and the Holy Family. Just makes you all warm and fuzzy, doesn’t it. We won’t even discuss their fondness for “Grandma Got Run Over by the Reindeer.”
Maybe they’re just trying to keep me distracted from the Herman Watch. It’s working 🙂
