Austin 37th Street decorations

37th Street's holiday light glory has faded a little since the one person (with the most spectacular place where you'd walk the trail through the back) moved away, and this year it's also less politically edgy since the Bush regime is headed out soon. All the same, it's always a treat! It all starts at the Groovy Lube.

The Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster is honored (may you be touched by His Noodley Appendages)

Whiskey River included 2 garlands of gallon whiskey jugs. That is nearly a river of whiskey.

Here's one for Dr. Monkey - sock monkey manger. It included a monkey angel on top.

Obama manger, includes LBJ, Martin Luther King Jr., and I believe that's Barbara Jordan (?)

This lighted reindeer was driving a pickup truck with a lot of empty beer cans in the back. That's a penguin on the passenger seat (hard to see). Watch out, Grandma!!

Nothing says Christmas like Tin Foil Praying Mantis.

Obama and the biiig problem. This house had a theme. It had the pork belly trough, golden parachutes...

...and a modern-style Monopoly sidewalk.

There are a few more at the link.

It was a sad sight to see quite a few For Sale signs right there at the beginning of the street, esp. with COMMERCIAL also written on them (all from the same real estate company).
