Funny, middle-aged, near retirement woman sharing life stories, advice on gardening, raising adult children in a century home in a rural Canadian existence.
Jenn, All families must go thru these things. My granddaughter puts a creepy clown where her dad can catch a glimpse ...cause he hates it. LOL My girls use to put a fellow's picture in each other suitcases . I think that little head would be startling. Blessings, xoxo, Susie
I know a clown would freak me out more than this little thing. I seriously despise clowns (even before all this clown stuff has been happening).
Ye gods and little fishes. One way to keep the fridge door closed
hahaha that's hilarious. That is something my daughter would do.
It was my husband this time.
HAHAHA! I read the post you linked to and it's hilarious. What a fun bunch you are. We had a skeleton that we forgot to pack up after one Halloween, so we sat him on the couch until we eventually put him away. Well, we never did. For years he was part of our living room. He sat on the couch and we even dressed him up. We changed his clothing depending on the season and/or holiday. We names him Mr. Bones and in an odd (crazy) way, we grew quite fond of him. This all happened when we lived in Montreal. When we moved to Kingston, he moved with us and was given a spot in our new home. So this went on for years until we put our house up for sale. Then I (reluctantly) stored him out of sight. I didn't want to but my husband said that potential buyers wouldn't quite understand why we have a skeleton sitting on our couch :)
Oh, I LOVE your story so much!!! Do you have him tucked away somewhere? I think you need to bring him out and dress him in some cozy plaid for fall!
Yes, I bagged him and tucked him out of sight. I have the urge to take him out and put him on display, but our house is still on the market, so I'm going to have to wait. Once we've settled the house stuff, I will get him out of storage, dust him off, dress him up and give him a spot to relax in. A house is just not a home without Mr. Bones in it :) I may even pick up a Mrs. Bones for him...haha...
I'm glad I'm not the only person with experience of severed heads. We discovered a full sized mannequin head in our attic that used to appear at Hallowe'en. I wrote about it on my blog - Wicked Parents.
Hi Sue, I just went over and read your blog. Lovely! There's nothing like scaring your children! -Jenn
Omg that's hilarious! I went back and read your post - laughing so much!!
Did you manage to stay on your feet and not scream?
At this point all it got was a sigh and a loud drawn out, "Haaa, ha."
A severed head in the refrigerator is something that my husband and my daughter would come up with. Sounds as though y'all have fun!
This is just great. I LOVE it!
One way to keep food in the frig! I would slam the door shut and forget what I came after!
Hmmm. That gave me an idea for April Fools Day.
