Be afraid... Be VERY afraid...
Okay, so as life would have it, my "Scary, Halloween" post comes a week early. Whatever... See, as I have been reading the other blogs I visit, I have come across some weird stuff, and being the nice guy that I am, I thought I'd share it with you. (By the way, my teacher would have killed me for writing such a long run-on sentence in High School...or College for that matter!).
(You really need to click on this to appreciate it)
You, too, can have your name generated with 1974 Topps Scary Initial Stickers: Just go here! Oh, if you're not up for the history, just scroll to the bottom of the page. That site also has some of their cards, too. You can hunt around their site, find the clues/cards, email them the urls and you get some kind of bonus card or something.
I also stumbled across a neat little toy for the Star Wars fan who happens to be a zombie lover as well:
Yes, that is a zombie-fied Darth Vader you're lookin' at there. There is also a zombie-fied Princess Leia, but the pictures don't really capture the wonder - at least, that's my opinion...
I can't remember if I said this or not, just just go along with me here...
At Wal-Mart the other night, we saw an orange shirt with "spooky" text. It read, "I don't DO costumes!" I think I'm getting that to wear to work next week... :-) I tried to find a picture of it, but I couldn't.. If I buy it, I'll take a picture and post it. Why not, right?
Things were moving slowly this morning, so I was running a bit late when it was time to take Tyler to school. As I got in the truck, I looked over my shoulder and noticed that Daisy was standing with her two front legs on the wrong side of the fence. The fence was on the ground. Now, this is just a barbed wire fence connected to steel posts. But, she looked like she was ready to make a break. Or, more to the point, she looked at me as if I had just caught her sneaking out of the house.
I gave her some food, hoping that would coax her back into the pasture (it did) and then I jumped in the truck and took Tyler to school. I already had an appointment to do some troubleshooting in the Prescott HS distance learning lab, so I went ahead and took care of that. Before I headed for my next school site, though, I drove back to the house. Daisy was still inside the fence. Looking around, I realized that one of the long, heavy metal blades (off a tractor or something) had fallen down, causing the corner post to lean, which in turn meant the wire had sagged to the ground. I got the blade back in place and grabbed the wire pliers to tighten up some of the fencing. Remember, I am dressed for work - khakis, blue pullover, etc. Once that is done, I hop in the truck and head to the next school. Nothing like mending fence in between school visits! :-)
Did I tell you? The BBQ chicken came out GREAT! The kids loved it, Shan loved it (though it was a taaaad spicy), and I think it is the best BBQ sauce I've had in a while! I'm not usually a pitch-man, but if you get the opportunity to try Paula Deen's Southwest BBQ sauce, go for it! :-)
