I was in Home Depot today this morning buying some contractor bags and over in the Out-door section they had a big lawn inflatable shaped like "The Red Barron Snoopy". You know the one, he has the scarf and goggles on while he is sitting onto of his dog house. There is some 'snow' accumulated on the dog house so its Christmas-y.
I set it up in the garage to make sure its not "F"ed up or nothing, I'll probably put him out after Thanksgiving.
"I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come round, as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable time; the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if they really were fellow passengers to the grave, and not another race of creatures bound on other journeys." ~Charles Dickens
