I walk dogs in many neighborhoods. Some are wealthy and expensively groomed, and others less so. I took this photo from one of the latter neighborhoods. Headless Santa is horrifying people not only here, but on a blog called Along Life's Highway: The Yard Art Game. There, pictures of other peoples' yard art can be entered for fun and points. The weirder, and more outlandish the subject matter, the better. Broken birdbaths, Smurf orchestras, and especially gnomes are fair game. Santa attracted my attention not only for his headless condition, but because he was still displayed two months after the Christmas holidays were over. Though I was hoping he'd remain until July, I'm sorry to say he was taken away last night. I already miss him.
