I'll have a 'blues' Christmas

Rex and Ann Lasson, along with their granddaughter, Avaya Koning, 4, pose with their Christmas-themed Blues Brothers statues, which sit out on the second story porch at their home on Park Avenue West in Princeton. Rex purchased the statues at an antique auction about 10 years ago. The statues originally came from a Chicago blues bar. They now serve as an iconic piece to drivers who mosey along Park Avenue West. The Lassons often catch passersby slowing down to get a better look or to stop for a quick photo.
