Greatest Christmas Decoration

Definitely a digital camera moment in the Christmas decorating hall of fame.

No, this didn't happen at our house. We could use some excitement around here, but if there were a guy hanging from our roof, Jan would take his picture and then turn the hose on him while she called the police. Since we can't identify him by his face, we wonder whether the police have butt recognition software today.

"Good news is that I truly out did myself this year with my Christmas decorations. The bad news is that I had to take him down after 2 days. I had more people come screaming up to my house than ever.Great stories. But two things made me take it down.

First, the cops advised me that it would cause traffic accidents as they almost wrecked when they drove by.

Second, a 55 year old lady grabbed the 75 pound ladder almost killed herself putting it against my house and didn't realize it was fake until she climbed to the top (she was not happy). By the way, she was one of many people who attempted to do that. My yard couldn't take it either. I have more than a few tire tracks where people literally drove up my yard."

Fortunately, Jan did manage to find the Text Tool in PSE. And a Crop/Resize Tool. They must have been on vacation Sunday, but they were back Monday morning, and Jan has f-i-n-a-l-l-y finished one whole design for our Zazzle store. We have tried to explain to her that one design does not provide enough variety to interest us, let alone customers. So we're not open yet.
