The neighbors are starting to wonder...

See anything wrong with this picture?

How about this one?

How about this one?

Yes, a LOT of our Christmas lighting is dead.
And why is that?

It is because "all of the other reindeer" that like to "play reindeer games" are apparently targeting our house for their frolics.

Each morning we have to go out and retrieve our light strings from the snow and re-thread them through our bushes.

Those deer are getting into seriously dangerous games: they have bitten through some of the light strands!
I suspect some reindeer dares have been involved in the latest round of games.
Can't you hear the teenage reindeer saying "Hey Dancer, you wuss...DARE you to bite through this!"


Dancer: Owww.

Anyway, Bernie has taken to standing out on our front porch and yelling out:

"Hey you  dang reindeer, stop playing those dang reindeer games!"

He yells this in broad daylight, when absolutely no deer are about.
He does this several times a day.
I laugh every single time he does it.
The neighbors must think we are nuts.

(You have seen the wood chuck chuck commercials, right? We laugh every time we see it too!)

Off to buy more light strands.
And maybe some deer repellent too.

How rude of those reindeer! Yes, I love the woodchuck commercial, too.

Enjoy the reindeer games! We have coyotes chewing through wires over here.

Wishing you and Bernie...and the rest of your family...a most blessed Christmas!
