Still driving and doing my best to avoid Christmas.

Not easy when "Candy Cane Lane" is a half of a block from where I live.

This is my street. On the weekends they put sawhorses out to close our street off. It can be a real trick to get out at times.

This is what the lesser half of "Candy Cane Lane" looks like. Tonight poor Heather got caught in traffic trying to get onto this street. It took her twenty minutes to get to where she could turn in our alley and make it to the garage.

This is looking toward the East.

Even I will admit the sand sculpture of Santa Claus is pretty cool.

They do take donations. The Donations are all given to charity. Their hearts are in the right place.

I do hope you have a wonderful Hanukkah, Christmas, Yule, Kwanzaa, and New Year. I'm not trying to be political correct I have friends who find all of these a reason to celebrate this time of year. And, while I find the season a challenge I do appreciate the joy it brings.


  1. Nice to see you again if only for a short visit!

    The good colors in your photos remind me again how much my little Fuji is struggling. These lighting events bring so much joy and misery at the same time! It's pretty much hit and miss in my neighborhood and even then some "displays" are nothing more than a string of lights- which is all I did.

    I wish you and Heather and Leo a quiet, calm, healthy and gentle holiday.

  2. Greetings and felicitations to you and Heather as well.

    I don't envy you and that lit up street. Luckily our neighborhood is quite modest this year as far as lights are concerned.

    We put up our tire wreath outside by the garage and that is as far as our holiday festivities go.

  3. Happy festival of light, Keith. Holidays will be over soon, and things will go back to 'normal'.

  4. Our street has only two houses lit up. We don't plan that far in advance. If you don't have them up by October, then you may as well wait until next year...

    Merry Christmas!

  5. It is what it is, enjoy the lights, laugh at the confusion and welcome a new year! Where did the last one go? Happy New Year. (I can say that, I live in the country ... there is no traffic!)
