I had a friend forward an email to me and in keeping with the holiday spirit, I post it here...



The text below the picture reads:

"Good news is that I truly outdid 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. "


After a little searching I found the posting at http://poorandstupid.com/2009_12_06_chronArchive.asp which is the address for the blog entitled " The Conspiracy to Keep You Poor and Stupid. (probably not be the origin of the post.)

I was glad to see that there were still people around who actually cared enough to try to help!

Oh well, at least he knows there are people there who care. It must have been fun while it lasted.

Irondad & Lance - I think people want to do good though we don't always hear about it.
