Some People Go All Out for Halloween

 

Carson Street South Side      Anything this wild in your neighborhood?

The Stockings Are Hung

At Big Dog Coffee on Sarah Street,  the South Side.  Ready for the season.

When I saw these stockings hanging by the fireplace, I thought it was funny.

I posted a reflection of Big Dog Coffee last November, you may remember.  A great place to meet for coffee.


Three Little Pigs

Last day of pumpkin season. The Pig Race at Leed’s Farm Ostrander, Ohio.  Each pig represented a college football team in the Big Ten.  Well, there are now 12 teams in the Big Ten and already a Big Twelve – so 6 pigs..ran three at a time and then a final race between the two winners.   The pigs were rewarded with a treat at the end of the race and didn’t seem to mind.

Last day of the season at the pumpkin farm.

Pig races are over in a flash. The little pigs run fast!


Friendship Park Middle of the Day

Driving from one school to the other in the middle of the day, stopped at the red light.  You just never know what you will encounter.  Near West Penn Hospital.

Wonder what the dog is thinking?


Quad Cities Halloween House

Mary and I ate dinner along the Mississipi River at the Boat House in Davenport.  Char grilled catfish filets. Our hotel overlooks the river in Bettendorf. A huge riverboat transformed into a casino.We’re in Iowa to celebrate our first cousin’s daughter’s wedding tomorrow.  Driving along River Road we saw this home decked out for Halloween. The photo doesn’t capture it sufficiently. I couldn’t have answered what the Quad Cities were before today.Moline IL East Moline IL Rock Island IL and Davenport IA

 


Large carved pumpkins lit the stairs.

 


Inflatables Season Begins

I am fascinated by these monstrosities....I mean yard decor!

There is no explanation as to why I photograph these items.  Last year it was the Inflatable Turkeys and then a new one today- Frankenstein.  I hear they are expensive.  I guess I just don’t understand how they have caught on.  Surely the grandchildren would love a yard full of inflatables.  They remind me of those plastic clown punching bags you’d bop in the nose and it would fall  over and right itself, still smiling. They seem to be getting larger!
