Well, I'll start this thread early ... since I got one of my presents last night.
Hubby got me a five-foot high statue of Lord Shiva for the garden. It is awesome! Very contemplative and calming. I've wanted something like this for the longest time.
Funniest thing, though ... our two dogs are totally tripping on it. They both stand away from it and bark at it like crazy and will not go near it. I walked up to it and petted it and said "good Shiva, good," but they don't care ... they're barking non-stop. Heh -- I'm sure the neighbors are loving it.
