So besides being mad at me for being so tardy with this post, the Easter Bunny is also mad at my neighbors. Why? Because so many of them STILL haven’t put away their Christmas decorations!
The last time we discussed this it was Groundhog Day. That was bad enough but this is getting ridiculous. How can we truly celebrate Easter if we’re still enjoying the trimmings of holidays past?
Like this reindeer, still on my neighbor’s porch:
The last time I groused this complaint, I’d totally walked past the tired wreath on this tired stucco wall:
And this was the first time I’d noticed this reindeer pair that still stands on a neighboring rooftop:
Somebody clear them for takeoff already.
But I think if this Joseph and Wise Guy get taken in, I just might miss them. I drive past them every day on my way to work and I always check to see if they’re still there.
The weird thing is, they get moved around. Not much, but a little. You’d think that whoever is relocating them and occasionally re-setting them upright, you’d think that person would get a clue and just put them away for the season.
Sometimes I consider sending letters to all these offenders. But is that who I want to be? The crabby crone who scolds her neighbors by snail mail? I was born with a gift for tsk-tsking. But maybe I shouldn't develop that talent.
I have a feeling that next year, unless we get our act together, this ‘hood is in for a lot of empty baskets.
