How To Dress An Eye Catching Window

One of our local stores has their Christmas display up.


"Christmas was on its way. Lovely, glorious, beautiful Christmas, upon which the entire kid year revolved. "

"First-nighters, packed earmuff-to-earmuff, jostled in wonderment before a golden, tinkling display of mechanized, electronic joy! "



"Only one thing in the world could've dragged me away from the soft glow of electric sex gleaming in the window."



"I want an official Red Ryder, carbine action, two-hundred shot range model air rifle! "



"Only I didn't say "Fudge." I said THE word, the big one, the queen-mother of dirty words, the "F-dash-dash-dash" word! "...

..."Now, I had heard that word at least ten times a day from my old man. He worked in profanity the way other artists might work in oils or clay. It was his true medium; a master. But, I chickened out and said the first name that came to mind."

"Schwartz!"

Funny how declawed the F word is to me. I've just heard it way too often. The other day, I overheard it at least six times in conversations between other people within one city block...

Love the lamp! On my recent trip to London, I got to take in the store Christmas windows- such a treat.

I usually save Christmas Story for Christmas Eve, but now I have to watch it after seeing those awesome displays and reading some of my favorite lines. I love this movie, and even though I own it on DVD, I always turn the TV to TBS for the 24-hour showing.

There's a house in the neighborhood that adjoins my daughter's that displays a leg lamp in one of their windows. It's awesomely Fra-jee-lay!

Fa-ra-ra-ra-ra-ra-ra-ra-ra!

It's nice visiting again.

Love, Susan
