I know that Halloween is still two weeks away, but seeing as it's my favorite holiday, I plan to celebrate until it arrives :) All coincidences, strange bumps in the night and premonitions will be duly noted and shared! The above display is around the corner from my home. There's a grade school directly across the street - I like that this family goes all out every year (in fact their house is decked from top to bottom) - I'm sure the little goblins love it.
To begin our Halloween theme of the strange, odd and downright weird, I'll share with you the odd effect I appear to have on red lights: I attract them! I've noticed (and if you have ever driven anywhere with me, as either the driver or passenger, you will have also noted) that I seem to end up as the first car at a red light, more often than not. Intersection after intersection; day upon day! I'm not sure how long this has been happening, I only started noticing it a couple of years ago on my way to and from work and then began pointing it out to fellow passengers. Weird or what.
Then there are the moments I have perfect timing. Here is another piece of Frankoma I fortuitously stumbled across. As I had mentioned in this post last week, I seldom to never come across Prairie Green, in fact I rarely see Frankoma pottery of any kind. However, this past Wednesday I was just about to head out empty-handed after scouring Goodwill for close to an hour and a little voice (no, I kid you not) said to me "Don't forget about Frankoma, Jane" - I took two more steps, turned my head to the right and this piece jumped out at me. It was in amongst a jumble of mish-mash; in perfect condition. I literally had chills...
Here's a new field for you: Unicornomics.
I had good look through this amusing book on Friday; very detailed and totally hilarious!
And lastly, speaking of corn and fields, did you hear about the family who got so lost inside this 7-acre cornfield maze in Massachusetts that they had to call police to rescue them? It was getting dark, the mosquitoes were attacking and they had a three-week old baby with them. I wonder if they're blonde?
