Scarecrow Time

We went to see the Scarecrow Walk at the Morris Arboretum this weekend.

It was a nice day.  We all can’t believe it’s only two weeks until Halloween!!

Brody was glad there was a Frankenstein represented.  It was a good day.

September at the Arboretum

It’s almost Autumn.  We usually don’t start the festivities until October 1st but when you are a Scarecrow, Frankenstein and a ghost all year is Halloweentown time.

This place is like church for the Roomie.  The leaves are starting to change color, which of course we love!

Alice is always one who jump in a photo.  She’s just glad that she comes out in pictures.  Being invisible sometimes has its draw backs, lol.

Elliott and Brody are pleasant chaps.  We always have fun together.  They call us the Ghoul Squad.

We know so many have been dealing with Hurricanes and Tropical Storms so it forced us to get outside and appreciate our local nature.

I hope everyone has a great Tuesday like ours!

I consulted the magic 8-Ball.  All signs point to me not having off tomorrow.  Well that’s a bummer.

This is a stress relieving squeeze doll.  It relieves stress because it is hysterical looking when you do in fact squeeze it, lol!

Don’t be a hater I was singing John Denver just for you!!

Oh well I’ll just smoke it later.  Did I ever tell you the joke about the fish?

The music was amazing.  We listened to the soundtrack in the car on the way to the theater but there is something to be said for the live action of the musical.

I had so much fun and was still cheering on Elphaba at the end!  I totally love her!!!  Do you think she would marry me?

Summer of 2013 – Art?

I know that art in itself is subject to what the person viewing it feels and thinks about it.

I’m kind of art snobish I think.  I like my art to be Monet, Van Gogh or even Dali, I tend to understand their works but I’m not sure what to get from this snot producing skeleton?

Do I like it?  I’m not sure but it is different.  What do you all think?

Summer 2013 – Arts and Crafts

We traveled over to Millville, New Jersey to visit a place called Wheaton Village.

It was a hot day but all of these trees made it palatable.

They make pottery and blow their own glass.  It was very hot in the kiln but pretty awesome to watch. (p.s. This sculpture looks nothing like me!)

Okay this one might look a little like me 🙂

It was an informative trip and a lovely day to just sashay about the compound.  You should totally check it out if you live near New Jersey.  The month of July is free admission!

Summer 2013 – It’s Always Christmas Time Here

We were in Lancaster with the Roomies and they took us to this really cool Christmas Store open all year.

Who doesn’t love a good German Santa Claus?

I always loved Christmas time in Germany.  Back in my day it wasn’t quite what is celebrated today but it was still the one hopeful day a year 🙂

Bjorn couldn’t come this trip because he was at the pool with the ladies so I took a picture of Norway’s Christmas for him.  I’m not sure they celebrated Christmas on the Fjords.  I’ll have to ask him next time I see him.

“And I would like another Franken Doll and…wait are you sleeping?”  Santa needs to wake up and hear my list!

Hey Bob Cratchett and Tiny Tim Hey!!!

We had a lot of fun.  I’d do that tour again it was really cool.  Well except the Biblical portion that freaked out the Roomie…she’s such a wimp!  I told her…Man Up Yo!
