Halloween Countdown 2017: Booger Hollow!

Today I went to visit my dad in Blairsville, up in the north Georgia mountains. Very close to his area is a little town(?) called Booger Hollow, and this time I was determined to snag some evidence.

The sign out front of the one convenience is the best! Although I swear it used to have a ghost on it.

Dad and me.  I have never given this man any reason to be proud of me…I’ve pretty much failed at everything he had hoped I would be. But I know he likes me because he said he wore his shirt today especially for me!

Halloween Countdown 2016: A Visit to Randy’s Pumpkin Patch!

There’s a pumpkin patch I’ve meant to visit every year near where I worked today. Finally went. I took lots of pics, as I had the whole place to myself. I imagine it has a lot more energy on a cool fall evening, but it was still fun to look at everything. I am generally not a fan or today’s inflatable ornament overload, but some of the ones this guy had are quite funny.

Fun and Frolicking: Renn Fest 2016!

So Steve and some of our pals(Blue,Orangebird, JoJo and J )went to the Georgia Renaissance Festival a few weekends ago, and I went again with another set of friends(Phrog and Dooflunkey) yesterday. When I go, I love to go on a “creature hunt”, since monsters of all description are all around in the art and flags and crafts and tapestries and statuary and so forth. Here are some of my finds:

Haunted Mansion Clock, Character by Disney,Art by Liz Vitale

Since its Monster Monday I thought I would share one of my favorite cards I made for Steve for our 13th wedding anniversary. The Clock in the Haunted Mansion attraction at Walt Disney World is possibly my favorite thing in the whole ride. I was drawing it from memory here, and I accidentally added two more horn-things to the “head”, but I did remember that terrific number 13 it wears.
