|I guess even Santa's feeling the economic pinch this year|
It's time to make sure your Christmas decorations are secure, especially the inflatable ones. They don't weigh much and are easier to get away with. Every year we hear of at least a few instances in which laredoans' festive decorations are kidnapped right from their front lawns all over town. Our ever-resourceful citizens always come up with creative ways of protecting their Santas, snowmen, reindeer, candy canes and elves. Unfortunately, theives probably spend an equal amount of time conspiring on how to outsmart the owners. Incidentally, we don't recommend the idea posing as an inflatable yourself. Heaven forbid you might get mistaken for a mascot or something.
