My Kind of Christmas Decorating
Have you ever lived next door to the neighborhood “Clark Griswold”?
Well Ginger and I were out perusing the neighborhood Christmas decorations when I turned the GMC down a particular cul-de-sac. When, what to our wondering eyes should appear? But the most brilliant home Christmas decorations EVAH!!!!
Not impressed huh? Oh sure you all think you’ve seen better… well… I’m not talking about the house on the left of this image… nope the winner is the house on the right!
Still don’t see it? There on his roof is…
How perfect is that!!! Winner! In my book!

The Virginia Hood… Yo!
Yep, grew up there… Well near there in the equally white toast suburb of West Springfield VA. But seriously, this could represent any, MTV wannabe reality suburb across this land. Damn funny!
From the same guy who brought you “Cap And Trade”… here is:
“Arlington The RAP”
I’m sure all my NoVA readers can relate “FO SHO!”

And to think I wasted 6 hours of my life watching the original version!
HT to Brad Wilson…
Episodes 4-6 in 2 minutes… and amazingly enough it doesn’t lose a thing in translation!

But where’s the fun in that?
HT to Michael Vaughn for pointing this one out…
Yeah, I’m sure Linda, Maria, Theresa, Kristi, Dana, and of course Ginger, will be burning up the toll free number buying a gross of these things!
Me I’m more a fan of this style…
Stop Giggling Stu and Tim…

Double D’s Two Mile High Birthday
My buddy Derek Davis (AKA “Double D”… Initials folks not a reference to his flap jacks) is one of those guys who really enjoys life to the fullest, he is humorous, fun loving and dedicated to his family and friends. He’s one of those guys you always want to invite to your party. Well today was Derek’s day to invite a bunch of us to HIS party! No not the Communist Party… despite the hat, and his graduating from University of Colorado in the Peoples Republic of Boulder! His Birthday Party!
In normal Derek fashion (hmm… normal… Derek… Uh… usually these are two words that don’t collide in the same sentence… but work with me here people) he threw his Birthday in true Colorado style! At the “Beach!”
This is not your normal “Beach!” primarily cuz one we’re in Colorado, not California… and this beach is about 2 miles up over the 11,990 foot Loveland pass at the base of Arapahoe Basin Ski Area. Yep this is the last weekend for the ski season here in Colorado, and A-Basin is the place to be.
So a bunch of us made the trek to welcome our friend to the fun of 39! And had a great time enjoying the vistas, the beer, the music, and the laughter! It was a good time to be had by all.
Now this being a party and all, Derek served us up some really tasty Bratwursts along with the usual finger food fare. Then to finish up a few of the stalwarts, Derek and a few of his friends had a Shot. But again… it’s Derek… so this ain’t normal either. Five… count ‘em FIVE! Shot glasses are glued, screwed, nailed, or attached in some way to… yep a SKI! Each glass is filled with the imbiber’s favorite elixir and then all five participants ally-ooop! Here, it’s better in photo’s, see below…
Notice… YHS is being responsible and not partaking… NEVER DRINK and PHOTOGRAPH!!!! ;-)
Anyway… Happy Birthday “Double D”! Welcome to 39 you frigg’n puppy! And here's to many more!

Work The System… It’s More Fun!
Friend of mine sent me this as an illustration of “Don’t Mess With Old People…” which it is indeed a perfect illustration of that. Me I just see someone who utilized what Aristotle referred to as “The Available Means” .
HOW TO CALL THE POLICE WHEN YOU'RE OLD AND DON'T MOVE FAST ANYMORE.
George Phillips, an elderly man from Meridian, Mississippi, was going up to bed, when his wife told him that he'd left the light on in the garden shed, which she could see from the bedroom window. George opened the back door to go turn off the light, but saw that there were people in the shed stealing things.
He phoned the police, who asked "Is someone in your house?"
He said "No, but some people are breaking into my garden shed and stealing from me."
Then the police dispatcher said "All patrols are busy. You should lock your doors and an officer will be along when one is available."
George said, "Okay." He hung up the phone and counted to 30 and phoned the police again. "Hello, I just called you a few seconds ago because there were people stealing things from my shed. Well, you don't have to worry about them now because I just shot them." and he hung up.
Within five minutes, six police cars, a SWAT team, a helicopter, two fire trucks, a paramedic, and an ambulance showed up at the Phillips' residence, and caught the burglars red-handed.
One of the policemen said to George, "I thought you said that you'd shot them!"
George said, "I thought you said there was nobody available!"
Ok now having illustrated the proper utilization of the available means… that does not equate to calling 911 because McDonalds is out of Chicken McNuggets! Some people simply cannot discern the difference between Creative Thinking and… uh… well… NOT Thinking… Cuz sometimes the system will WORK you!

Don’t you love getting the giggles and can’t stop!
I had one of those moments today, when I clicked on a link a friend of mine sent me. Oh sure it’s childish. But once there, I could not help but click a few interesting selections. Well after about the 4th or 5th one I found myself sitting here in my office, by my lonesome, laughing my ass off in one of those fits of… DAMN-I-CAN’T-STOP! Tears rolling down my cheeks!
I love those moments in life when something strikes your funny bone so oddly that the giggles just spew forth like
lies promises from a politician!
I have enjoyed being the instigator of numerous giggle seizures among my friends, and I’m sure, like you, can remember many of them, they stand out just that much! My buddy Stu is especially susceptible to these, and man talk about contagious! Worse than yawning!
Tim, Ken and Stu will remember the Coors Brewery tour! And of course the time that I turned my sister into a dairy nose sprinkler at the dinner table!… Dumb luck that…
Ok… enough pre-amble…
Dare Ya! Hope you enjoy the raw silliness of it! [Link]
Sorry Stu… but thought of you for any number of reasons on this one! …and watch out if you are at work, people will wonder!
