I didn't see this scene lit up, but I can only hope the lights are blue or green to simulate the lake where the harmless ducks are about to be blown to bits by Santa. Note that St. Nick is the one with the shotgun ready to go, though we wish the elves that put this together would have sewed him some proper camouflage jammies. Those ducks are going to see that jolly old killing machine from 100 yards away.

Happy holidays from Texas! Yee haw!

Ever hear of "Chili Con Carne?" Means Chili with meat. Which means Chili was not historically a meat dish, but rather a vegetable dish with chilis.

I can't convince my hubby that beans do not belong in chili.

Awesome! 

BTW, Jeffrey, hunters don't blow anything to bits. If they did, there would be nothing left to eat. DERP

@sharonmoves @greglopp My favorite area is the loop right around Travis Elementary. There's a 2-D Santa in a spaceship I'm obsessed with.

@sharonmoves @jeffbalke Yes! Boating, waterskiing, wakeboarding... He says Santa gets bored, too, so he mixes it up every year =)

@d.a.uhrich  Actually, the original name was Chili Con Carne (not Chili), which meant Chili Pepper with Meat.  It has since been shortened to Chili since everyone knows that the only thing you add is meat.

@miss_msry  Explain to him that beans take up valuable real estate that more meat should be in. :)

@miss_msry Honestly, I think if we put the phrase "beans in chili" in every post on the Houston Press, hits would go through the roof...and comments would follow. :)

@ItsMerryChristmas Oh, I know. I used to hunt ducks myself way back when I was a kid. Just thought the hyperbole sounded funny. :) Thanks for the comment.

@JRCohen He does a different scene every year. The past 3 years have involved a boat. One year Santa was fishing, last year wakeboarding.
