Ho! Ho! Ho! Just Say No!!!

Oh! I can't believe I nearly forgot this!

Talk about the Christmas spirit!!!

I was riding my bike yesterday when I passed a home with Christmas music blaring out the windows while a guy, presumably the owner, hung Christmas lights. It was so cool.

Of course to you Northern folks, it would have seemed surreal as it was 80 degrees 99% humidity (I was drinking air yesterday) and the guy was wearing shorts and no shirt.

I rode my bike by that same house this morning and nearly fell off my bike when I startled out of my thoughts to some Christmas music. They have a wreath MOTION DETECTOR on their mailbox. I think the postman is going to frickin' HATE them.

Within a week.

The postman brings me my mail. Every day.

He is NOT the guy I'd want to piss off. No.

We will not be getting a motion dectector for our mail box. Good Grief!

And I was just happy to convince my kids to NOT have flashing lights.

I'm slacking this year. Need to get on the ball if I'm going to out do the neighbor across the street.

It's freakin' freezing here. But one of those motion detectors sounds like just the thing for my front door... I'm sure the UPS guy would love it!

I really hope nobody here does that; I'd have to peel this fractious dog off the asphalt if we came upon one during a walk.

Heheheheheeee!! Something like that here would get a person shot - just sayin'...

My DH hung lights today - on the fence. Did I mention that it's 4' high??

Sounds like the rest of your lighting project went well!!

Our condos won't let us decorate outside. Hurrah!

Meanwhile, for the non-Floridians visiting here: if you don't like drinking your air through a straw, you'd better grow gills...

In a week or so, I will be putting up the Christmas Light Extravaganza, complete with frozen fingers.

80 degrees with 99% humidity? Feh!
