Here's my question...
Who decided it would be a good idea to make Christmas lawn decorations that would only display if you turned on a fan to inflate them?
I suppose the theory is valid. You can have a large, puffy, colorful, 3D illuminated Santa bobbing and weaving in your front yard throughout the entire Christmas season and be the jolliest house on the block.
And for the 5 hours every night that you power them up, they look like this.
The problem is... you have to keep the fan ON!
Why? Because otherwise all your poor Santas, snowmen and penguins will collapse from lack of oxygen, and all day long they will look like this:
These are just a few of the yards you'll see along the route between my house and Roseanna's karate studio.
The funny thing is, I had this idea all queued up to do the other day before Doozie left this comment on my post yesterday.
... and I despise those blow up lawn deco's. I think this year I will take my shovel around and bash those things.Hmm, I thought I saw her lurking around here last night.
