It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas

On the subject of Christmas decorations, people are getting a little cheeky around here.

I was biking through the neighborhood yesterday and stumbled across this:

an elaborately decorated refrigerator. Genius! And that was just the beginning. There was a blue-tarped stable, a fake neutral-ground sign offering carpenter's services, a flyer for three missing camels last seen at the Gonzales SPCA, etc., etc. Hardly a single trademark of the post-Katrina landscape was ommitted. Beautifully done.

And last night, when Miranda decorated her house with lights, sly devil that she is, she made sure to include the pile of sheetrock and roofing debris out front:



  1. The fridge photo - yours or someone's - is going to be classic, an icon of Katrina. Sez me.

  2. I just knew it bound to happen! I swear! It was only a matter of time. Thank goodness for comic relief. And thank you for posting it.

  3. A brief update - Miranda's trash heap, which had been sitting there for weeks, was, naturally, picked up the very next day after being illuminated. Ah, beauty, such a fleeting and elusive thing.
