Bonestock in my front yard has made it into its final week. We survived wind, snow and now more snow. My T-Rex took a serious stage dive in week 3 and we thought he was lost to a broken neck. He survived to live on for future Halloween fun.
Week 3 featured “Country Joe and the Dead Fish” and the finale is none other than the incomparable “Janis Goblin”. I hope you have enjoyed my Halloween tour as much as I have.
Last night, my Sweetie and I drove to the east side of Denver based on a recommendation to see a Halloween display. OMG!!! Two blocks of old stately mansion homes, with every house done up in a massive display. Flashing lights, sound effects and even creatures from outer space, these people took decorating to a whole new level. I felt rather inadequate. (not really) My favorite was what appeared to be Jurassic Park. Someone had parked their Jeep on their front lawn with the appearance of having crashed into a tree. Next to the Jeep was a T-Rex – much larger than mine – with its jaws wrapped around a skeleton neck and pulling it from the roof of the jeep. Stunning! Next to it was a grouping of T-Rexs (is that the plural?) in various sizes, from a hatchling to a child-sized creature. Across the street was Area 51, complete with a huge spacecraft. I could go on and on, but I’m sure I’m not remembering everything. Kudos to the Oneida Street neighborhood for your entertaining and fabulous display.
And to one and all, Happy Halloween, Day of the Dead, Samhain, All Hallows Eve, All Saints Eve, and whatever and however you enjoy and/or celebrate this passage of fall.
Trick or treat, anyone?
