I guess there should be a law that all holiday catalogs should be mailed out beginning in October, or at the very least, the last week of October. As you can see, I keep getting catalogs intended for a former resident in my apartment. What new residents would consider a nuisance, I see an opportunity at some blogging gold. Let's take a look!

I thought we would start with a bang, however, my picture got cut off at the, um, waist. In short, ha ha, this "funny elf garden statue" is relieving himself on the tree, fun for the whole family.

Want to scare the stuffing out of your aunts, mothers, and little ones? Crank up the "four racing mice"! True story, not long after my family moved to our house in Hartford, a mouse scurried across the kitchen floor and my Mom and my cousin Carol freaked out, and all I could say was, "look, a little animal!" I may have to get these for Zoey so we recreate my special moment from 1980.

Speaking of Mom, LOL! Yes, this is a wooden puzzle for one to solve and get the bottle of wine out of. I see a new holiday tradition on the horizon. "Watch your host's face turn from Chardonnay to Burgundy as they (he/she) struggle to free the wind bottle!" The struggle, as the kids say, will be real.

For the receptionist, office worker in your life, how about this mini-nightmare? Yes, his rear end is magnetized to hold on to your paper clips. And you thought the Squatty Potty was revolutionary?

I have no words, except this would be an interesting gift for the kids, and you may get them to take a bath sooner. There could be $50 in there; the kids can Win Cash!
