Is My Neighborhood Santa Protesting Police Brutality?
Winter is off to a chilly start at my usually not too chilly location on the planet.
Yesterday, on the last day of Fall, on my way to walk around Fosdick Lake in Oakland Lake Park, drenching drizzle caused me to opt out of that plan and continue on to an increasingly rare Saturday Town Talk visit.
Today in the noon time frame there was no drenching drizzle so I opted to take an increasingly rare walk around my neighborhood.
Walking north on Canyon Creek Drive I soon saw that one of my neighbors has Santa looking a bit unusual.
This Santa is about three miles from the machine gun toting Santa I blogged about earlier in the month in a blogging titled On My Way Today To Walk With The Village Creek Indian Ghosts I Had An Encounter With A Machine Gun Toting Santa.
I am fairly certain there is not some sort of Santa Gang War going on in my neighborhood.
Could Santa, with his arms in the air, in a "Please Don't Shoot Me" pose, be a reference to the Michael Brown murder in Ferguson?
Or is this supposed to suggest that Santa is climbing the tree to gain access to the chimney?
I likely will never know the answer to this particular Santa question....
