Mom and Dad had antecedents on both sides of that bloody conflict. Counties were split, towns were split, and families were split. It was never as simple as being the north versus the south.

The Preacherman says, "My advice to you is to get yourself a gun and learn how to shoot." The Gunman says, "My advice to you is to get yourself a Bible and learn how to pray."

General Electric Color Effects 52in 36L LED Light Santa NOT RECOMMENDED!

.

Available from SEARS.

I got the thing home, set it up, and at ANY DISTANCE cannot tell that it is supposed to be Santa. At best, it looks like some amorphous blob space alien.  There are not enough lights to outline the wire silhouette. It really sucks.

Jeez, I hate decorating for the holidays.

Speaking of which, why does not anyone sell an illuminated “BAH, HUMBUG!” sign for Christmas? I am in the market for one, along with an eight-foot tall “Ebenezer Scrooge.”

Greetings from Texas,
Nice thing about living on a ranch is Christmas deorating consist of putting a tree I cut on the property up on the porch.

Then every morning I find the ball the cats have knocked off but not broken and put them back on.

Ruth, I'll be sure and post pictures if I get one. I love the idea.

Art,I know the cat routine very well. I joked to my wife that maybe we should just decorate the tree with a hundred or so cat toys ;)

Happy HUMBUG!
