Drive-in

Funnel Cake and Drive-in speaker

I hadn’t been to a drive-in since my early twenties. That’s some time ago. With summer at hand, and a plan to take Friday July 24th off of work, we found ourselves free to stay out late on a Thursday night (avoiding crowds), so we headed out to the Moon Township ‘Dependable’ drive-in. We drove …

Princess with Medium Skin Tone

Princess with Medium Skin Tone Apple Emoji

I often use Apple’s iPhone Siri to read texts to me. When receiving an emoticon, she describes it. And so I was greatly amused when I received a text with an Apple princess emoji and Siri described her as, “Princess with Medium Skin Tone“. I think that should be the title for the next Disney …

Too Bad Boko Haram Didn’t Deflate a Football

A ridiculous amount of national news cycles has been spent on America’s favorite tax dodgers – the NFL and their latest sports cheating scandal, “Deflate-Gate“. – I’ve watched the story either lead, or take second on the TV news all week. As if there weren’t already entire series of channels devoted to covering sports, such …

The Nightmare Before Christmas

All Photos by Yours Truly – Glen Green. Click on images to see larger versions. In a ravine she lived, …

Halloween Hands

$1 dismembered hands from Dollar Store - jazzed up

According to the calendar, Halloween is over, but it lingers in my heart. – I had quite a lot of fun decorating this year. The following iPhone photo is an example of one Halloween project where I took cheap, boring, Dollar Store hands and gave them various treatments to jazz them up. Procedures included painting, …

Why I’ll Never Retire

Halloween Decorations

Between the amount of money I spend on and cheap Halloween decorations and on fireworks for the Fourth of July, I’ll never be able to retire. This weekend, on Saturday the 25th, we had a Big Halloween Bash. In preparation for it, we’d been decorating since late August. What took two months to put up …

Giving Up the Ghost from Sticker Shock

Gift shop ghost decoration

I was in a gift shop at a nearby hospital the other day, and since I’ve been keeping my eye out for Halloween decorations, I spotted this little, 3 inch tall ghost:   Not much to it: a cotton ball, black cutout paper eyes and mouth and a small piece of sheer white netting. Not …

The Driving Dead

Although I dearly, dearly love summer I’m already thinking and planning for Halloween. On the negative side, I’m spending way too much on Halloween decorations. On the plus side, I now expect to drive in the HOV lane thanks to my new copilot.

Ghostly Gettysburg

I had an occasion to visit Gettysburg Pennsylvania this weekend for a little R&R. As expected, the area is rich in history and amazing stories: tragic and heroic. But I was also amazed how swamped the area is with ghost stories. The first hint came when it was posted on Facebook that we were going …

Mow With Attitude

Shopping at the local Farm and Tractor store, I found myself eyeballing a zero turn tractor. (Such is my life these days.) My eye was caught by the ‘Elite’ ‘Bad Boy’ lawn mower. Looking closer I came to the tractor’s control panel… “Mow With Attitude”. Everyday I’m reminded that we live in a surreal world. …

Free Hugs

My friend, Margret shared this image with me, saying, “I immediately thought of you”; to which I replied, “I’m sad to report that for some sick reason, I’m glad that this made you immediately think of me!“ Margret responded, “Glen Green: the reluctant psychopath.” Glen Green: the reluctant psychopath – I think that would make …

The Price is Wrong

Five Below Duck Tape - 99¢ ... er... $3.99

Quick! How much does this tape cost? I saw this at Five Below. The Blue ‘3’ blends into the black background even more in person. I have to wonder how many shoppers got to the checkout line only to be pissed off that the price was four times higher than they thought. Is this just …

Florid Fido Feculence

I’ll confess that I’ve never had much of a scatological funny bone but I do have a keen sense of the surreal. Shopping at Target during the Halloween season I came across glow-in-the dark plastic poo in the $1 dollar bin that greets visitors on entry into the store. I marvel at the following: Note …

Lusus Naturae Menus

We stopped at Pittsburgh’s Rocky’s Route 8 on June 6th after work, interested to try someplace new to eat. The food wasn’t great but we managed to get some funny pictures at least. This Little Piggy Wants to Eat Your Soul We had to wait more than an hour for mediocre wings and a hamburger, …
