The Eagles

One of my favorite all time groups is The Eagles. I have always loved their music, even when they split off into their solo acts. I was glad to hear that they had gotten together for a renaissance album and I bought it recently while at Wal-Mart. The new album sounds great. I heard a couple songs that I knew immediately would get radio airplay, but I have a couple that I really like that I doubt will make it to the top 40. But that’s OK – I have never been all that mainstream in my musical taste.


Last night was so nice. We had small groups of trick or treaters for a few hours and then we watched a scary movie on DVD to add to the holiday flavor. I hadn’t seen Poltergist for years and years, but it is a really scary movie. It touches on every human fear, from monsters under the bed to zombies. What a great movie and a great way to spend Halloween. We even have a couple handfuls of candy left over to munch on for the next week or so.

Buster and the Scarecrows

Buster doesn’t do real well when I ask him to pose for a photo. I think he’s in the model’s union and knows I don’t have a contract.

Here’s the two scarecrows I put up. Both scarecrows were boys but I wanted to make one into a girl, so I added “lipstick” and “mascara.” Then I cut off the bow tie raffia and glued it under the hat to make “her” bangs. The pumpkins are a mix of real and plastic. I wanted to get them out before the trick or treaters come out tonight.

Buster thinks the whole project was silly but gives him something new to pee on when he goes out for his “morning constitutional.”

Yard Art

This time of year the change of seasons gets me thinking about the yard and being outside. I like to take short walks in the morning with my dogs before I have to leave for work. When I get home, the dogs are glad to see me and ready to go back outside for as long as I am willing to stay out with them. Of course they are on a leash – I would never let them risk their lives by running wild. And it is good for me to be outside anyway.

I want to put out some pumpkins and maybe a scarecrow or garland around my mailbox post. I’ll see what I can come up with.

Hello world!

Welcome and make yourself right at home. I have some fun things to write about, some tips and maybe a rant or two. But this is the perfect outlet for all those things, isn’t it?

I hope you enjoy your visit and come on back when you have more time.
