Ok, this one is just weird ...


At long last, here is the strange Flying Snoopy-Reindeer-Goat ornament I referred to last night in a previous post. This guy came to us via my sister, who was clearing out stuff a few years ago ... my best guess is this is at least 30 years old, if not older, given the time when there was a Snoopy everything out there on the market. All I can say is that whoever designed this little number clearly had some conflicted ideas about 1) Snoopy and 2) what a holiday ornament should be ... But in any case, we love the oddness of this one ... morphing a flying Snoopy with antlers and a beard just embodies the non sequitur factor for us. On the other hand, perhaps he comes from the workshop of the FSM? You tell me ...

If anyone else has seen one of these, I'd really like to hear about it ... because this is the only one of these I've ever come across ... and as I mentioned last night, this guy manages to spend most of the year on display hanging somewhere in the house ... usually on the end of the switch pull for the ceiling fan in the dining room ...

LOL ... this one made me lol!

And I've never seen one ... and it's not surprising that he finds his way to other locales for the rest of the year.

:D
