    Unusual Christmas Decorations

    “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 two 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 that it was fake until she climbed to the top (she was not happy). By the way, she was one of the 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.”

    And I thought a secure perimeter of green army men around Lima's manger scene was good.

    JD I'm shocked that you don't have small plastic Marines guarding the manger. I mean, Army men? For real?

    thats clever

    It would suck if it came to a "boy who cried wolf" thing... hanging off a gutter doesn't sound like much fun
    There is something about firing 4,200 thirty millimeter rounds/min that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

    Some people have asked if that was me, posing for the photo.

    No!

    I saw this somewhere else and I thought it was real. I remember thinking to myself: "Who would have stopped and taken the time to take the picture while said person was hanging from the gutters?" That and: "Those gutters are very securely attached to the house."

    That's truly unique. Why don't you do it again for April Fools day. You'd make history.

    Hmm, around here if someone saw that and called the fire department, and they responded, the home owner would have to pay for the response.
