Thank you...the only frustration is that people react after I pass them so I can't see most of the reaction...but its good karma anyway.

The 400 watt inverter in the bed cannot handle both the bear and the wreath while in gear, but I have a 1750 watt inverter on order...so next year might be off the top of the bling bing chart...!!

If you saw the youtube video, the head turns from side to side...and I think it amuses the drivers behind me...

I had nothing to do with that!!! Honest. Once, we did tie one end of a friends lights to a car bumper. It was kind of funny to watch the car drive off and hear the glass bulbs popping! I got that picture in an email, it is not my deer, BTW.

And the deer hanging from a tree...took me a while to figure it out, and only that after I read the explanations...but very original indeed...
