In some areas, rural and city there are people that have a concrete goose or geese that they dress for Holidays and some people dress their goose every day.
She has been standing guard here for going on twenty years. Most of those years she just wore her concrete. But recently some of her 'attire' was rediscovered and she wanted to be dressed for Halloween.
Lucy has performed her duty in spite of several mishaps. Such as a broken neck delivered by some construction folks while working on the porch. A quick fix with some silicone has kept her head on and her on the job for the past ten years and it has not impaired her job performance.
She also has some 'bill problems' after an encounter with the Green Pony. Unfortunately the bill tip was not found.
Through it all Lucy has kept her post as guard and greeter. I think she looks just fabulous in her new (old) clothes.
It has been a beautiful cool day. A ride on the Green Pony took the tips off the grass and chopped a lot of leaves that will be the fertilizer for next year's lawn. We were treated to this spectacular sky at late afternoon's walk. I wish I had taken a picture of this stretching off to the east as well, for it was as far as you could see.
The little duck is actually a rain gauge that I have consistently used as a small vase to hold weeds and a flower or two. She resides in the kitchen window over the sink and it seems that she is gazing out the window today and wishing she could go puddle jump.
My favorite tea cup/mug/pot. Given to me by a dear friend and once sister in law by marriage. It holds ten or so ounces and with a lid the tea can be steeped right in the cup. The saucer can do double duty as a dessert plate!! The place mat is also a favorite, from the Dollar General Store a few years back and I love every bit of the art on it.
Every Friday I visit the blogs of the people that participate in Friday My Town Shoot Out. A challenge and lots of interesting photos every Friday. Many times I have thought about joining them. Today's challenge was clouds so, on our walk late this afternoon I decided to take a few shots and post just for the fun of it. Who knows, maybe I'll get linked up and start taking the Friday challenge.
