Is it possible for Decorations to be TOO good?

Had to share this one. Now I'm tempted to do this at my house next year!


Well, there is good news and bad news about my Christmas decorations this year...

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.

Kind of feel like I gave in to the man by taking him down, but my neighbor did confirm two near miss accidents on the busy street next to my house.
I think I made him too real this time.

So it was fun while it lasted...

The outside of a horse is good for the inside of a person.

It really looks like very realistic. When I saw that picture at first (hadn't read the text yet) I started to think "poor man, hopefully somebody will help him out of that situation before he'll drop".

Yup, I love it. We live in the country, so it wouldn't take long before everyone would know about it. I hope I remember in time for next year. This year I'm just too busy to do outside decorations, but what a hoot!
