Christmas Inflated Yard Decorations: lost count
Stops: one for cough medicine, one for coffee
Number of Hunters at Coffee Stop: 6 in parking lot

But were they inflated?
We pass a rather terrifying little Christmas village on our way. It's best to direct one's gaze elsewhere.

The sooner the inflatable yard decoration fad passes, the better.

((St C)) Happy here, too.

Happy New Year.

The uninflated inflatables are the worst part to me. A yard full of...dead Christmas cheer!

Such a metaphor for The Christmas Machine!

But it sounds like your morning was gorgeous. Hope your cold deflates soon.

what's the story behind the methodist tent??? are they (still) church-less or was this an alternative camping weekend or what. The mind boggles

I have often wondered how much the electric bills are for those who insist upon "blowing up" Santa and sleigh, Frosty, and the nativity.
Yes, blow up baby Jesus makes me shutter!
Do y'all have camoflage colored stockings or is it just over here?
