Last week while doing my daily walk up on the mesa I found a most wonderful thing. People who don't want to pay dump fees throw out all kinds of stuff up there. Usually it's just plant debris, but sometimes you find whole houseloads of belonging illegally dumped. When I saw this particular item I laughed and thought about "A Christmas Story" and wondered who in the heck would have this item proudly displayed in their house. It ranks right up there with a black velvet painting of Elvis or bloody Jesus. And so I will present to you one of the finest found objects I have run across on my daily forays.
And note little Ralphie in awe of such a fine work of art.
