First a fun illustration from my collection of Hallowoonie goodies. I hope you will enjoy it.
Now to the insanity of decorating for Halloween. Many of you know that we love us some donkeys. And probably none better than the longears that live at 7MSN Ranch. Many of you have seen our references to Linda Carson at 7MSN Ranch and how we adore her. But what you do not know is how utterly, wacky and wonderful Linda is.
When changing the batteries out on her smoke alarm which is like 12 feet off the ground level, she put a ladder on top of her dining room table and climbed to the top taking her camera to document the activity. Here is that funny and jaw clenching daredevil post link. http://www.the7msnranch.com/2012/02/problem-solving-alone-and-in-middle-of.html
And recently she contemplated putting the ladder in the back of her pickup to reach the top of her newly gifted weather station. Her reason for not using the gerry rigged taller ladder makes for a great read and here is that link. http://www.the7msnranch.com/2012/09/you-know-me-too-well.html
So when you see this picture of my adorable, albeit wackado daughter getting down the Halloween decorations, you will understand why we call this "doing a Carson". I do have to admit that the kitty litter box did fit well on the task ladder but it still gave me the shivers. And then Danger Jane (you notice the nut did not fall far from that tree) wanted to see what it looked like from up there and climb atop the device of terror to my old heart. Odd note.....Shelley is afraid of heights. GK climbs on the roof with Pops whenever he will let her. I don't want to know anymore.
And ya wonder why I call our house Casa de Cuckoos????????
