Crazy what I think of Black Friday. Ames and I refuse to do any kind of shopping on this stupid day. I value my calm demeanor and low blood pressure too much. Unfortunately I have experienced a Black Friday a few times and it was quite unpleasant. So you can get good deals on things, big whoop. Do a little searching any other day of the year and you can find good deals too, without the insanity that goes with huge crowds. This is why I have formed the Ban Black Friday Club.  During Thanksgiving dinner my dad said he is actually going shopping with my mom today. He says since he has been gone hunting for the last month he owes her. Not sure what happened because he used to be part of the club. I said to him at the dinner table as I shook my head, "you've changed man." He chuckled and when he did I think I saw something in his eye that said, "son, you are right, what have I done."

More Privys

Here are our other two outhouses. The seats were removed to gain a little more storage room. Come spring new roofs will be put on. The tool shed was a two seater and is fairly large for an outhouse. It's 6 ft. by 6 ft.

is an original VHS cover, the one on the right is what I came up with
using Picnik.

The Scary House

Many of my October nights were spent working at the Oblivion haunted house. There were several nights I remember Boo (4) not wanting me to leave. The conversation would go something like this.

Boo: "Daddy I want to come with."

Me: "No Boo, I'm going to the scary house."

Boo: "I don't want to go the scary house and Mommy doesn't want to go to the scary house. I don't want to go to the scary house cuz it's too scary for me. "

Me: "That's right, but you get to stay here and play with Mommy and your brother, ok?"

Boo: "Ok Daddy." proceeded by a hug.

The Bubba Scarecrow

This week Ames and I were able to do a photo shoot of my Bubba Scarecrow costume. I felt the chopped cornfield behind our woods would serve well, plus it's a short walk over there. We couldn't have picked a better November day...partly sunny skies, a slight breeze, and 60 degrees. My goal was to pay tribute to the Dark Night of the Scarecrow film. All photos taken were by Ames. The man in the mask..........................................................yours truly.
