Holiday Massacre?

One of the houses in our area is really into the airblown inflatable yard decorations.  It just makes me smile every time I pass by.

But today I was shocked and appalled to see the unspeakable carnage.  The horror!  What could have happened?  Who is responsible for this outrage?

(Okay, Ron says this isn't funny, but I just have a weird sense of humor.)

And a bit of nostalgia.  My father uses old stamps that he collected over the years on his mailings.  It's a real adventure to receive a letter from him.  I love seeing all the old stamps.  On his Christmas card to me, one of the four stamps was really cool.

From the Santa depiction, I would have thought the stamp was about 60 years old, but I checked and the postage was 20 cents in the early 80s.


  1. Your dad is very clever, but then, you already knew that! :cD

  2. That's pretty neat to use old postage in a special way like that!

  3. Those inflatable decorations look tacky with air in them but they really look sad deflated.

    Merry Christmas!

  4. Okay, you need to stop at that house and find out what happened. We all need to know the rest of the story. Love that stamp.

  5. You do have an interesting sense of humor ... and I'm right there with you on the way it looks with them all deflated!

    Smart of your dad to use stamps from his collection ... have a friend in Texas who does the same thing; never know what (or how many) stamps will be on things she mails me.

  6. I wish I had known I have a stamp collection that is probably would have made a great Christmas gift to your dad!!
    What on earth happened to the Rocky Horror Christmas Show??
