Consider Yard Art

This is a snowman- He showed up in all of his glory on Christmas Eve and he and his snowy friends left the day after Christmas.

His time with us was brief but it was magical and fun.

My dog tried to run him off because- silly boy- he confused the snowman with yard art. My dog hates yard art. Gnomes, Yard Jockeys, Plastic Angels and Manger Scenes. I’m not sure why exactly.


Yes I do.

But it wasn’t on purpose:

This is Vlad III, also known as Vlad the Impaler . Vlad lived to be 45 years old, but he found immortality in Hollywood and has done well for himself in the Cosplay Community.

This is someone’s tomb in a cemetery in New Orleans.

They took up residence here after they died.

The Gate actually opens and closes and there’s enough room to sit on the stoop and take in the rest of the neighborhood and think about things. Like maybe you’d like to move there one day.

That would change things a bit for the current residents but I think they’re pretty easy to live with.

So to speak.

The Snowman, Hamish’s Fears, Vlad and the Person In The Crypt all have or had a place to call home.  They were in residence. It felt permanent, it looked solid and then one little thing or maybe a couple of big things happened and it all changed.

Is that such a bad thing?

I don’t think so, do you?
