A Laugh for Thursday

OK, my neighbors are officially insane. I mean, I don't know them or anything (we live out in the countryside, where you sort of wave to people as they drive by, and have a vague idea of who lives where, but you don't hang out on the porch and chat with everyone in the neighborhood...). However, now I am certain that the couple who lives on the corner, in the big gray house, is insane. How do I know this? Well, as of last night, their Christmas lights are up.

No, I'm not kidding. And no, the lights aren't orange, in some kind of Halloween spirit. They are 100% red, twinkly Christmas lights. Strung along the wooden fence that runs the length of their property. With a big wreath or something right in the middle. It was 70 degrees two days ago!!

I'm all for the holiday celebration, but could we maybe wait until most of the leaves are off the trees? Or until after Daylight Savings' Time changes back? Or until the calendar switches to November, at the very least??

Sigh...

Marianne found this yesterday, and I have to share. Especially if you're a cat person, you'll appreciate it!

By the way, you should visit Marianne's "fun page" anyway. She has some good stuff there. Enjoy!

I saw the video yesterday and laughed my butt off. You do not need a cat to find that funny. The least you need are kids.

Actually, Marianne, since you asked...Sonoma (or San Francisco, somewhere on the west coast) and Cleveland are the two I have outlined, believe it or not. I keep thinking I'll run out of 24-hour plot ideas sooner or later, but for now I'm OK...
