The study of neighbors through their lawn decoration... Figure 52a. Washington/Virginia Vale: Space alien seeks camouflage amongst the yard art. UFO enthusiast Jeff Peckman need look no further than the photograph above for validation in placing his Extraterrestial Affairs Commission initiative on the August 2010 Denver ballot. The feeling of being watched is common for the yard arteologist, who quickly learns to differentiate a retired senior's fenestrations from the concealed scrutiny of an extraterrestrial.

The space alien seen to the right of the blue-plastic-truck-toupee tarp, was most likely attracted to the house by the address number and the curious assortment of yard art, which is better seen in a second picture after the jump.

The amazing collection of festoonery pictured in figure 52b implies that the occupants believe that there is a world beyond. The angels, the butterfly, the windmill, the oscillating fan positioned next to the basement window air-conditioning unit all suggest a belief in transformative creatures who are dependent on the movement of air. The house number itself intimates an "out of this world" interest that is extremely "high."

This will all be very good news for Jeff Peckman, who holds his Extraterrestial Affairs Commission Ballot Initiative campaign kickoff this Thursday, March 4, 2010 at the Jefferson County Fairgrounds Events Center, at 7:00 P.M.
