Well, that took just about forever, didn't it? But it's done! I made a detachable flower for the top of the hat that you can't see too well in the picture and if you press it, it's plays "Somewhere Over The Rainbow" which I thought was sort of useless, but rather nifty. ANYHOW, Ray arrived at his usual time and managed to skinny by the Gestapo as he always does. We did BBQ for lunch as we had a set of lookers (sigh, but once again no buyers) come around 1-ish. We went to a very over-advertised yard sale, signs everywhere for a handful of dusty broken down items but we did get to see a very nice neighborhood that we drove around a bit. Then Ray and I took pictures of some not so nice houses, I always find them so much more interesting, don't you? The 4rth picture was of this tiny house on the side of the road and I think it had actually been lived in recently! The skies were spectacular all day, with squalls blowing in and out. We did our usual Dixon City shopping and had dinner at Applebee's this time, no pictures as it's a rather tight restaurant and hard to take pictures. We did the mall for a bit and then headed off home. We stopped at the video store to see if we could rent The Life Aquatic with Bill Murray but ended up getting The Life Of Brian instead. It's been years since I've seen that one but Jackson and Ray hadn't seen it and they were beside themselves laughing - the cruxifiction scene at the end is only rivaled by the window scene in the middle, not to mention all the silly nonsense about the shoe which Jackson really enjoyed. I have to say no matter how many times I see them, Monty Pyton's Flying Circus never gets old.
