If you love the movie "A Christmas Story" as much as I do, then you'll understand my jubilation upon sighting the leg lamp in a window in downtown Portland on December 2, 2008. In a crate marked FRAGILE filled with excelsior, the arrival of the Major Award and the excitement of the Dad as he proclaims fra-gee-lay! He goes on to say that it must be Italian! I laugh my head off every single time I see the Major Award's arrival. To me, it is one of the best scenes in the movie, y'all.

Back to the photo, look closely in the window, there on the left is a Ryder BB gun, too!

I love the movie. Filmed in my former home city of Toronto Canada. The main reason I liked it was because it depicts many things that happened in my childhood. Red Ryder BB guns, tongues frozen to steel poles. The only thing I never saw before the movie was the leg lamp.
