Are you decorated for Thanksgiving? At home I set out a little set of candles of a Pilgrim boy and girl and a turkey. I also have a little set of salt and pepper shakers where the salt is a turkey and the pepper is a pumpkin. Here at work I have one of those old-fashioned crepe-paper turkeys set up--the head of the turkey is cardboard, and the body and tail are crepe-paper, and the tail fans out.

Here at work, the Christmas tree is already set up in the lobby.  :(





Yes,  my apartment is decorated.  I have a flag with a turkey on it hanging in my main window.  Then the smaller windows have light-up turkeys in them.

Christmas decorating will start the weekend after Thanksgiving.

Cool toys! The kid will be so thrilled.

What's that vaguely phallic object Superman is wielding?

It looks like a parking meter. Yay Superman! The world needs fewer parking meters.

I do have some Thanksgiving decor. I made two hops wreaths this fall and they are hanging on my doors. Somewhere I have some preserved leaves that could be put out in a basket with some acorns and such. You would think I would have colonial figures because of my ancestors but I don't. I'll shop around for some, but I don't want Pilgrims. Hopefully I can find some Williamsburg-type figures.

Chuckie, why the parking meter?  I thought he changed in a phone booth.  I understand there are hardly any more phone booths left, but a parking meter seems a poor substitute.

Since there are no more phone booths, he has to change in his car. In order to do that, he has to park the car first. And for
 
that, he needs a parking meter. Can't very well risk be taken by the police in the middle of changing, can he. So

embarassing!

I was going to say a car is an uncomfortable place to change clothes, but then a phone booth wouldn't have been ideal, either.

Superman looks angrier than when I last saw him. Also, if his hands are so large compared to his body, wouldn't someone eventually realize ... hey, Clark Kent has huge hands, too!!

I think he's so angry because of the shortage of phone booths.

He's forced to go through all that trouble of finding an empty parking space, making sure he has coins ready (it's an old fashioned parking meter, only takes coins), changing clothes while all crouched and making sure nobody sees him.

Such a hassle!

No wonder the man looks angry, I would too!!!

Hiya BetterMost friends.



Another day down, and Friday is on the horizon.

It's also payday for me!  ;D

Saturday the family is getting together for a few hours for Trent's 6th birthday party.   It will be good to see him and everyone else again.  :)   Sunday will be the usual visit with my parents and doing laundry.

Yeah, I think he will enjoy all the figures.   As for what Superman is wielding, it's a parking meter.

Yes, it's a parking meter, and yes, the world needs less of them!  I agree!!!!

I have no idea why they've given him a parking meter.  The only thing I can think of is all the other figures have a weapon or extra 'something', so they gave  him the meter so kids could pretend he used his strength to rip it out of the ground,  and use it as a weapon.

Since there are no more phone booths, he has to change in his car. In order to do that, he has to park the car first.  And for that, he needs a parking meter. Can't very well risk be taken by the police in the middle of changing, can he. So embarassing!

Well, the need for a phone booth is going away, I believe.  If I've read correctly, an upcoming issue of the Superman comic will deal with him giving up the Clark Kent identity, and revealing that Clark and Superman are one in the same.

There is a great visual gag in the definitive Superman movie where Christopher Reeve runs up to a pay phone that's not in a phone booth. He has to change in an alley.
