Hey, Dragon

This is the dragon guarding the marshmallows from the last post. He also goes by Stop #22.

Two more ingredients and I can make s'mores

Right on cue

Because Forgetting The Brats Will Make Life Jolly Rotten

Thanks for that Susie now I can't get this song out of my head so might as well go round the bend full throttle and embrace the madness because...
Press Play Now (I highly recommend playing the video while navigating this post).

Some things in life are bad, they can really make you mad
Other things just make you swear and curse
When you're chewing on life's gristle
Don't grumble, give a whistle
And this'll help things turn out for the beeest
Annd always look on the bright side of life



Da da, I think his hat has lice


Always look on the light side of life, da da, this thing is full of mice


If life seems jolly rotten, there's something you've forgotten


And that's to laugh and smile and dance and sing


When you're feelin' in the dumps, don't be silly, chumps


Just purse your lips and whistle, that's the thing
And always look on the bright side of life
Da da, my neighbor has pet geese


Always look on the bright side of life,
Da da I think they're ducks oh jeez
For life is quite absurd and death's the final word


You must always face the curtain with a bow
Forget about your sin, give the audience a grin


Enjoy it, it's your last chance anyhow
So always look on the bright side of death
Da da, too morbid for a kid?


Ah, just before you draw your terminal breath
Da da got away from me this did
Life's a piece of shit, when you look at it
Life's a laugh and death's a joke it's true
You'll see it's all a show
Keep 'em laughing as you go
Just remember that the last laugh is on you


And always look on the bright side of life
Always look on the right side of life
Happy Election Day everybody!
Always look on the bright side of life
Da da, the lines were pretty long
Always look on the bright side of life


My dad said grandpa would vote for the devil if he were a Democrat
Always look on the bright side of life
I mean whaddaya gotta lose ya know you come from nothing, you're going back to nothing
Whaddaya lost, nothing!
Always look on the right side of life
Nothing good will come from not voting, look at what happened last time
Cheer up you old bugger, c'mon give us a grin


There ya are, see, it's the end of the post
Incidentally, this blog is available in the foyer
Always look on the bright side of life
I hope you voted today because it can always get worse


Always look on the bright side of life
And Ian's is giving away free pizza if you show your I Voted Today sticker
Always look on the bright side of life
I told them, I said to him, Bernie, I said, they'll never make their money back
Always look on the bright side of life
Da da thank you Su-sieee! Mac

Google, How Do Giant Squids Consume Their Prey?

The month of October was an Irwin Allen disaster of a month and no matter what I did the building burned, the ship sank, time tunneled and the giant squid, as has the last month, sucked. There were a few hours today when I wasn't looking for a moldy bottle of something with alcohol in it to wash down trick-or-treat candy, so here ya go.

Is it still October, no, okay, well done

Squirrelly

A few weeks ago I left the hairdressers on a gorgeous day with an ungorgeous haircut. This critter wanted to chat when I rolled down the car window before I backed out. He only reminded me what a squirrelly month it's been so why not. Maybe I'm the one full of nuts but I swear we had a conversation.

I'd dispute the charges if I were you

How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Love The World Series

My Cubs-loving cousin finally got over her team's loss (it's been 2 and a half weeks) and agreed to go the NLCS with me in Milwaukee.

At least I think she got over it

We waited until the last minute to see what could have been the last game for either team and I think everyone secretly or very openly was hoping for a Game 7.


But the last grill was cleaned.


The last burger was flipped.


The last PBR flag was flown.


And the last bit of weed savored under cover of tailgate brat smoke.


The friendly concession stands have closed for the baseball season in Wisconsin.


The last hastily scribbled sign has been flashed to the camera.


The last chance to get on TV has gone to B roll.


The last pretty girl has been flirted with under the pretense of team spirit.


And mighty Yasiel did not strike out.
Goodbye Brewers, you were a delight and a surprise and hello Dodgers, this Cheesehead is still screaming, "Te amo!"

Ten Dollar Pepsi

These are a few photos from Game 6 of the NLCS last night in Milwaukee. At one point I had to put down my $10 Pepsi so I could flip off some particularly obnoxious Brewers fans with both hands.

Guilted me into tipping him a buck after I paid $9.00 for a Pepsi


My cuz and the Marlins Man, a celebrity of sorts

Ryu could have warmed up until the cows came home he still allowed 5 runs in 3 innings

Full of beer unless milked three times a day

Suffice it to say my team did not fare well and by the end of the game, I felt compelled to start screaming, "I love you!" to Yasil Puig. At least I think that's what I was saying, I was screaming in Spanish. 
But for now, Game 7 is coming up in less than five minutes so, "It's time for Dodger's baseball!"

Cranes of a Different Color

I lost my way among the fall foliage and Farm/Art DTour last week. Although I didn't pour over maps and color code them with a pile of markers (this time), I did part with $5 bucks for the official map which I got at Viking Village Foods in Reedsburg, possibly another performance piece.

Yes, indeedy, those are two people dressed as whooping cranes

I took these Saturday which was only partly gloomy. These whooping crane women made it a whole lot sunnier.

La la la la la, daaaancing

Dance like you're dressed like a whooping crane and everyone is watching

Huh?

Hoping there's a coffee break coming up soon

Starts the sping in Necedah, winters in Florida

I half expected them to start smoking. Cigarettes, although they were moving around pretty quickly

Time to migrate the hells outta here
This guy got in more shots than the performers.

Chicken Fingers

I don't know why I said "chicken fingers"—OMG 3-0 Milwaukee— but I did just stop by Game Time Sports Bar & Grill on the way home and got a great bar burger. Although it was in a bar full of very loud Brewers fans and I felt everyone knew I wasn't one of them. I should be but fantasy baseball made me a Dodger's fan and there's really nothing I can do about it.
Enough chit-chat, here's a photo of a straw chicken next to a church next to a graveyard from Thursday.
C'mon Blue, wake up! (Top of the 7th two on.)

Crazy gloomy weather most of the week, froze my ta ta's off taking this shot. Back to baseball, bases loaded, 2-2, Puig strikes out and breaks the bat over his leg

Some Joke About A Birdie

Thanking Mother Nature in advance for not raining tomorrow. Right, no rain tomorrow? Just one day, no rain?

A heron completing a hole one stroke under par

Fore (heaven's sake stop raining)!

Do you say, "Fore" in Frisbee golf?
