Xmas Decorations

I opened my email this AM to find this picture…

With this note attached…

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. Kind of feel like I gave in to the man by taking him down but my neighbor did confirm to near miss accidents on the busy street next to my house.  I think I made him too real this time. So it was fun while it lasted…

I was convinced for a moment that this was real. I truly could see the parishioner that sent it to me doing this. They are awesome!  I laughed for damn near 10 minutes. I am thankful for parishioners like this that bless me with laughter on a morning where laughter is the best medicine.
