Beware! Scary Post Ahead! Oh wait...

...not TOO scary I hope. I mean, I do frighten easily so I hope
these images will not cause any toes to curl or skin to crawl...my skin is scary enough
without it crawling all over the place...


But this all about SCAREcrows...scary, evil scarecrows.
Or not. I mean, I DID see more than one crow hanging around...but they seem to be much braver than me. Well, most things are braver than me. But still, each year Mom, Grace and I head over to Oakwood and drive down Scarecrow Row. People in that beautiful little city gather together and create these fearsome
terrors. Or not so fearsome. Or... 


This guy looks pretty scary...very, very scary...is that blood on his fangs?


Yikes!


I mean, the one players name is Skwash! Keeping moving fast Susie Q
and maybe he won't see you...

Ants!!! I hate ants!!!
(I think I saw these in one of Brian Dennehy's early films)


I may never eat soup again.


They even cut off his ear!!!! *wail*

Okay, so this scarecrow family LOOKS safe enough...but looks can be deceiving...

Ghosts!!!

Sshhh...I don't want to lose my head like this lady did...don't bring
attention to us...please...ssshhh....




They even allowed sweet, innocent Girl Scouts to make these horrific creatures!
Look closely...those are GRAVES!! AHHHH! They must be Ghoul Scouts!

The Central Perc British Tea Room frightened me the MOST! Those Royal Wedding hats are TERRIFYING! Run or they will plant themselves on YOUR heads!


I am so gonna have nightmares about THIS one!


And look what the local library did! Something as innocent as childhood
classic books are turned EVIL!


Cousin IT and a HUGE M & M? That poor little dog...he is toast I am afraid...run doggie...run...


The SCARIO Brothers? Egads! Now I can never play that Wii game again without night terrors!


I don't know about you but I need to get home fast, jump into bed and pull
 the blankets over my head! My heart is racing and...what?
You aren't scared? YOU want to go again?
NOOOOOOOoooooooo....

I just love how the towns and neighborhoods up your way grasp any holiday and make it special. I enjoy these pictures every year. You and Sweet PEA make me so jealous with all the cool things you guys see and do. I do have to admit I was "a little" scared.

Cute photos.

I'm not a big fan of Halloween. Dressing up, costuming, is fun, but I never enjoyed the part of Halloween where some thought/think it was a free ticket to scare the bejeebers out of others. I just don't do "scare"! At least, not gracefully.

Okay. Whoever was responsible for Vincent Van Gogh is seriously messed up. Creepiest one of all your photos, IMO!!! Too funny!!
