On the side of a hill in the deep forest green, tracing a sparrow on snow-crested ground,
blankets and bedclothes the child of the mountain sleeps unaware of the clarion call.
On the side of a hill, a sprinkling of leaves washes the grave with silvery tears,
a soldier cleans and polishes a gun.
War bellows, blazing in scarlet battalions, generals order their soldiers to kill
and to fight for a cause they've long ago forgotten

Even stop lights blink a bright red and green

Well, it's the holidays and you know what that means, blowing the budget on the electrical bill. Yes, when I turn on my outside lights, the other lights in the house dim. Good friend Sheila wanted pictures, so here they are.

We'll start with the inside.

For every holiday with lights, I have a great mailbox that just begs to be wrapped up.

And, of course, you need to make the gateway into the house welcoming.

And when lighting you should consider all angles, like your own view from the house (in the back you can see some of my neighbors inflatables).

And here are my inflatables. May I introduce the next heartwarming holiday special, Frosty and his two drunken little brothers.

And an "all together picture" to take us out. As you can see, my heard of deer has grown.

Hooray! Photos! The reindeer herd really rocks, and so what if it does force you to read by candlelight on occasion? Some things in life are worth it!

Hey Sheila, well, yeah. It's not so much candlelight as it's trudge downstairs in the dark to throw the breaker. I'm not as quick as a jackrabbit on a date, like the father in A Christmas Story, but I can get it done. We just need to get the nephew over and have him rewire the outside sockets to their own breaker.

Camille. Thanks, as a die-hard connoisseur of holiday specials, I think I'd buy that DVD.
