An Inconvenient Truth

Faithful readers may remember this photo from December 2005...



The Colonel puts a considerable amount of effort into the sidewalk "Luminairas" each year. The process usually involves freezing buckets and buckets of water, along with various body parts, in order to achieve a delightful, dare I say, almost Currier & Ives type of Christmas setting in front of the house.



Here is an actual photo of our best efforts to freeze the luminairas in 2006. The pathetic little ice chunks before you are all that survived our unseasonably warm weather. But the Colonel is a Moron. He persisted anyway...



I actually kept the strings of bare light bulbs strung out along the garden blocks, waiting and hoping for the beautiful frozen globes that would never come. We tried, we really tried to make more, but the water just sat there in the buckets...mocking us with their liquidity.



Dogs would stop by for a quick drink, and passing neighbors were heard to whisper, "Now that's just sad."

Darn you, Al Gore...

A visit to the pet shop today reminded me that you have hunnies. How 'bout some bunny pics? (Unless of course you ate them over the holidays.)

I think I speak for everyone when I say 55 days is too long to wait for another gem by the bandmaster.

And while you haven't been posting, we had one of the coldest months in the history of the world, and we just got about fifty billion feet of snow. Take that Al Gore.
