It’s Monday. Had a really good weekend. The heatwave finally broke and cooler less humid weather moved in. That made for a comfortable Saturday afternoon out at our friends’ place on the Kankakee River. They have an enormous deck that overlooks the water and is situated directly across from a small island and sandbar where people like to hang out, swim, and party. Having the river in your front yard is like having a gigantic panoramic TV that’s constantly feeding endless live entertainment. Had a great time out there and hope to get back soon.

And Sunday? Gorgeous weather again so we spent the day out in the Corvette soaking up the sun. Now that summer is beginning to wrap up, ya gotta take advantage of every nice weekend that comes along.

Gonna sleep good tonight.



Messing with your mind

It’s Sunday! Witchcraft. Definitely witchcraft.



It’s Saturday! I’m a huge fan of Halloween and all things creepy and scary. Every October I like to pull out some of my favorite scary movies like Friday the 13th, Halloween, Exorcist, and especially Tim Burton’s 1993 The Nightmare Before Christmas. If you’re familiar with the movie then you may recognize the pumpkin scarecrow pictured (right) from the beginning of the film. There was also a similar one that appeared briefly in Burton’s Sleepy Hollow.

I’ve always wanted to get my hands on one. I’m not talking about the actual prop, but a similar recreation. If anyone happens to know where to find something like the scarecrow pictured here, please let me know, I’d love to own one. Thanks!
