Interesting collection of photos. The Santa, poinsettia, and airplane seem so North American, while the other two photos seem European...to me, anyway.

Luis Gomez said...

These are excellent. Love your sense of humor.

I'm not surprised to see Santa servicing the dish antenna. With today's cost of living, Santa needs a second job to make ends meet.

I love the moonlighting Santa, too funny.

Even fake, those Poinsettia are nice. They remind me always on my birthday coming up, some days before Christmas. I am a Capricorn :)

Santa on that ladder--who would have guessed! Fun!

Hard times make Santa search for money where it is.

Lois said...

I love them all, but the Santa on the satellite dish is my favorite!

Steffe said...

That fake poinsettia sure is horrible!

But I really like that hard working Santa.

JM said...

Fake or not it's definitely Poinsettia time! :-) Cool finds.

Regarding the empty ship on my blog. She is lying (or is it laying) at anchor at the oil refinery so I would think her cargo would be oil. the pics on my 'day4plus' blog show some ships filling up at the refinery dock. MB
