Having a little fun with some dinosaurs that a friend frankensteined and that crack me up. They caught my whim and she lent me some to play with. I’m taking them in adventures and occasionally tweeting or Instagraming the resulting silly. She calls them semisaurs
I went into the local hardware corporate chain warehouse labyrinth to get some lag bolts and washers for my new workbench. Maybe some wood screws. You know how it is, you go in for one thing, suddenly you have 10 other random items at the checkout. Hopefully you succeeded in obtaining the original item you’d gone in for…
So the first thing I see on walking in is a display of animatronic lawn display critters for Halloween (my favorite holiday). I was amused and cheered. If I have to endure incursions in August every year from the Season of Obligatory Cheer™️, then at least I should get a little balm for my own soul in the form of kitschy skeletons dancing and clattering their teeth. Also, pumpkins and bats. I love bats. That’s another topic for another day though.
So I went in for lag bolts, and as I’m trying to find where they’ve stowed them, I have to wander the aisles. Along the way, about every minute or so, wolfmanjack there lets out a mournful howl.
It’s making everyone giggle though, and in each aisle, there’s at least one person chiming in with a quiet, friendly, off-key “aaawwwwooooooooo?” Followed inevitably by laughter.
I’m glad some of us can still laugh at ourselves.
…and no, I’m not entirely sure if that’s a crematorium on the left there, perhaps I should go back and enquire…
I’ll very likely be uploading posts directly from my phone…which means I’ll have to get the wordpress app to successfully log in and play nice with my website…this is all a re-learning curve, so bear with me while I make some laughable mis-steps.
