Why is this angel in my living room?
Because it doesn't look right on the front porch.  In May.  (Kinda like the Halloween decorations that appeared around Valentine's Day.  Or was it Christmas?  All I remember is that it was so wrong. Obviously the Belle Reve Homeowners Association doesn't consider me to be an arbiter of good taste.)  I wish I had video of Fran grabbing it and yelling "Not outside. Not outside."*   It'll be summering in the garage attic with Santa Claus. 

But what would you do if you received a phone call from a child driving in the wilds of southeastern Wisconsin asking if you were interested in a "plastic religious figure" on the side of the road?  What would you do?

*Oh, to have the time and energy to suspend it on a zip-line over the back deck.  That might put an appropriate damper on inapproriate language around the picnic table.
