During the last few days of camp, a new CD/DVD/game store opened nearby:
LIke many stores celebrating a grand opening, they rented one of those giant inflatable balloon figures to put in their parking lot and draw attention to themselves from the freeway. But this one was an interesting choice:
That's right, Santa Claus, in the middle of summer. Which begs the question: Did the balloon place run out of giant purple gorillas and patriotically-garbed bald eagles, or did they just give the store an incredible deal on an extremely out-of-season balloon?
At any rate, it amused me enough to come back later in the weekend and take pictures. I can't wait to see what they do for Christmas...
