Good Day, Sunshine...


Good Morning, originally uploaded by lla.

When I went out to get the paper this morning - this was the very first thing that I saw, smiling over at me.

Now, if I were one to believe in omens...

Oh, wait. I am....



Somebody's house got "TPed" last night...
and this is cracking me up this morning for two different reasons.

  1. It's in my neighbor's yard across the street, not my own.
  2. (Very Schadenfreude of me, I know. But while I'm not sure what I'm doing this weekend, I know that I hope that it involves far more sitting on my behind, and much less de-toilet-papering of the yard!)

  3. My neighbor is a really cool, mid-40ish, single guy. So I can't really imagine who in the world would target him for the rolling.
    (I imagine that the smiley face is to indicate that it wasn't done in mean spirits - but it just seems so totally 12-year-old-girl, you know?)

I actually was outside when Frank came home in the morning and got to see him see it for the first time.

He just smiled and shook his head ruefully.

He's a good egg.

What a happy little vandal you have loose in your neighborhood. I hope waking up to a smiling omen is a sign of bright days ahead for you.

That's a scream. Our nearest neighbors had high school kids (now in college) and their place got t-ped on a regular basis. Always cracked me up - and yes, I was very glad I didn't have to clean it up.

Very creative TP'ing. Maybe they got the wrong house? That's it. It was one of us in blogland, wanting to leave you that smiley face to cheer you up, and we got the wrong house! ;-)
