Happy...

...Hallows...that's a patch of smiling jack o'lanterns on the left...
...and a pile of happy ghosts on the right...
...and though they're sort of hidden and washed out with the strings of lights, there are a couple of climbing skeletons in the tree in the middle...

...a sort of "where's Waldo" thing I guess.
a little easier to see in this pic...
Never been a fan of inflatable decor, but Karen correctly noted we have this very wide panoramic view of our front yard / stone wall that faces the road, and any seasonal decor needs to take that fact into consideration.

So we found these two 9 foot wide Halloween inflatables that both of us liked pretty well, and voila...we have now officially decorated for All Hallows E'en.

But ours is pretty mild compared to some, and one in particular that's down the hill and around the bend from us...they've gone all out with the massive floating grim reaper / graveyard motif, complete with eerie screams.

To each their own...our goal in a few days will be to give the little trick or treaters some spooky fun, a bag of candy treats and a gospel tract...I'll be channeling Franky as always, and Karen I believe will be the Bride of Franky, so should be fun...if the weather cooperates, that is.  Rain in the forecast at the moment...

Almost there...a few more spooks and goblins to add to the mix and we'll call it good.

Got out on the links on my way home tonight...
Course was very wet today after all those days of rain, but it was still an enjoyable round.  Didn't do great but not bad either...mostly I just had fun swinging my hickories and strolling through the countryside...parred one hole and bogeyed a couple more, but spent most of my time in double bogey territory...an ok round for me.

Sadly, there will probably not be any golf this weekend...too cold and windy to get out on the course...temps only in the mid 40's...

Missed out on an ebay auction for a 1938 Ray Schober DC-3 lamp, originally designed and manufactured for the 1939 world's fair...
Won't say what I bid but the winning bid was $600.00   Extraordinary piece, but not worth 6 bills.

Took a break from working on TAT this week and penned "An Open Letter To My Father".  He's been on my mind ever since moving day - his birthday - and this composition just came to me over the course of a couple of days.  Think I'll include it "Cardinal 2".

And that's just about a wrap for this edition of the Atomic Monster Cafe...

later, mcm fans...
