The Edstrom Annual Christmas Deer

Above is the deer that was in my next door neighbor, Rick Allen's trash about ten years ago.  I pulled it out of his trash and mounted it to my oldest son's 1994 Ford Taurus (below) before school and put the red duct tape on its nose since it was Christmas.  John did not think it was funny.  I thought it was hilarious :-)

That weekend I decided to build a deer around the head.  It has now been declared an Ashburn historical landmark.  It is not unusual to have 200 to 300 cars come by every hour from sundown to sunrise to look at the Edstrom deer during the Christmas holiday.  The neighbors have gone from complaining about that "damn deer" to "hey, when's the deer coming out Dave?"
