How is it possible we’ve already reached October?? I’m still on the mend, and relegated to sleeping in my recliner for a few more weeks. Can’t wait until I can sleep ‘normal’ again! And can’t wait until the pain is completely gone. It’s kind of annoying, to be honest.

Fall is here, and of course the retail stores are smooshing the next three holidays together:

Thanksgiving on your left, Christmas on your right, and Halloween at the end of the aisle. When holidays collide!

Normally I don’t specifically decorate for Halloween – I generally do fall decor (with some uncarved pumpkins and cute scarecrows and corn stalks and fall foliage type stuff) but I could not resist picking this up when I saw it:

Yes indeed, that’s a 6-foot inflatable skeleton dinosaur. I’ll have to get better pictures of it, I was in a hurry because it was raining.

It was the last one at the store (Big Lots) so since it was on display, it was discounted. Win/win! And of course the kids love it. We put it out on the deck – last year we had our Christmas inflatable dinosaur out there, and apparently the elementary kids on the way to and from school had their parents drive on the road at the bottom of our hill so they could admire it. So who am I to deny them their happiness for Halloween, hmmmm? Heh…

Check this out – this is a twig/branch sculpture thing in the UK – ‘The Huntress of Skipton Castle Woods’ scaling 9ft:

How cool is that? I’d love to see that in person some day!

And now on to the funnies! Speaking of the UK, this cracked me up:

This is something I would totally do:

Or this:

This cracked me up:

As did this:

I wonder if that’s a fake or stuffed gator? If not, uh, no thanks:

And finally, I’m going to leave this right here for you:

  1. That dinosaur for Halloween, that is cool!

    Hope you recover very quickly, being in pain on the recliner is a bummer, and it’s too nice a season to spend much of it that way.

  2. Stacy,

    I’m sorry to hear that you’re still kinda miserable. I know being pain-free and being able to sleep in your bed again can’t come soon enough. One of the down sides of breast augmentations that I read about is the discomfort and special sleep arrangement. I should’ve figured if you go the opposite direction (breast reduction) that you’d experience the same sort of turmoil.

    Don’t you hate it when the holidays collide in stores? Retailers are too quick to usher one in before another is out. Drives me insane! Every time I see a larger than life dinosaur I think of you and PN. 🙂 The bunny doing shadow art made me smile. 😀 Have a randomtastic week and take it easy, dearie!

  3. Fall started what, September 22? I saw my first Christmas commercial the 21st. It was still summer!

    Some funny pictures here. I really like the one with the lady at the airport, and the one about beards.

  4. Funny texts- and, my husband has loved dinosaurs all his life. That 6 foot inflatable is perfect for him. The twig sculpture is so Katniss Everdeen, too. Loved it!
