CHRISTMAS ALONG THE REDNECK RIVIERA

This picture is just one of many I took today as I set out to capture the spirit of Pensacola. As you see, the house has Christmas lights on it. No, they didn't get an early jump on the holiday season by decorating 2 weeks before Thanksgiving.



These holiday enthusiasts have Christmas year 'round. I think the only thing missing besides a little fake snow tastefully sprinkled on the rooftop is a Confederate flag to fly atop the United States flag and the FSU (Florida State University) flag. Go Noles! Nothing says MERRY CHRISTMAS quite like they do in the South. Their hospitality is legendary, so ya'll drop by on Saturday for the big game, a cold beer and a bag of BBQ'd pork rinds.

  1. Oh. My. God. It IS Snark Wednesday. Hahahaha. We have the same sort of thing here. Of course, we call them Mexicans, not rednecks.

    And nothing says Christmas in this neck of the woods quite like a drive-by, cold beer and green corn tamales.

    Lovely Craftsman bungalow. I think we still have one or two of those left in the city.

  4. WD: I love the fact that you two spent the day together enjoying a mutual passion. What a great memory. One of my favorite things to do as well...with number one son. Unfortunately, he lives out of state, so I can't do it very often.

    A thousand photos to get just a few exceptional ones? sounds about right.

  5. Jnuts, hers are so much better than anything I took. She's really quite talented...I can't even begin to imagine where she got that from.
