Living with the BVM: Update!
Well Company, it has finally happened. Earlier I told you about how the six foot tall statue of the BVM in my neighbors yard came with a neon halo. At that time he lacked the transformer to make the halo operational. Well he has found it and hooked it up. And the best part? It's blue. Yeah, you read that correctly. There is a six foot tall statue of the the Blessed Virgin Mary in my neighbors' yard sporting a neon blue halo. Ummm...last I checked, halos are supposed to be YELLOW! Those of you who are avid readers and who actually remember things are saying "But isn't that BVM wearing blue? So it matches nicely." Yeah, fine. But halos are not blue. They are golden. It doesn't look like a heavenly being at the end of my driveway, it looks like a strip club. The good news is that he has it on a timer of some sorts, so it is only on from say, 8-11 or so. But still. It is not what I expected. And it is not what I wanted. But it is what it is. And it's blue. And it's neon. And it needs to stop. But at least I can't see the neon pulsing out my window while I am trying to sin. Right?
