I see this trailer every year, and every year I say I'm going to take a photo. Tonight was the night. The vendor went into it and closed the door so I could see the whole mural thang. I think the painted Santa is going to give me nightmares tonight. Trust me, the pics are better blurry. I mean that in a good way! Thanks Christmas tree guy!

It's across the street from the Allen House on Washington Street.

I took a digital illustration class this semester and our final project was
to illustrate a holiday card. I went the "this too shall pass" route. There
are many things I love about Christmas, particularly the Phil Spector Christmas album from 1963 featuring Darlene Love, but once those jewelry store commercials start.... Ugh. Reeeeeeeeeooooow! Darlene Love was lead singer for The Blossoms who were the backup singers on Shindig! Watch The Blossoms get blown away by Aretha at 1:40.

One of the grooviest things my dad did was to hang a swing from a really high tree branch in our back yard. He would give us the most powerful pushes which enabled us to touch branches with our feet. My sister and her husband have done the same thing. It's the simple things that bring such joy. The expressions on my friends' son's faces say it all! Hang a swing in your yard and create joy and great memories for your kids... and joy to the fishes in the deep blue sea! Weeeeeeeeeeee!
