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.
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.
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:
This imposing figure greets you at the bottom of the staircase in the Haunted Mansion at both Disneyland and Walt Disney World. At Disneyland, it has a greenish, aged-copper patina, while at Walt Disney World, it is a deep crimson red!
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.
