Jack Scarecrow -

I decided that my scarecrow probably didn't want to be a scarecrow for Halloween, so I bought him a "Captain Jack Sparrow" costume. Since he doesn't look too much like Johnny Depp, I decided to name him Jack Scarecrow instead.

Spent most of the day yesterday cleaning up the yard and getting rid of the pumpkins on my front porch. Unfortunately one had started rotting and it smelled awful! Had to throw my decorations away, but hey at least they lasted this long.

We had a freeze last night and it was only 30 degrees at 9:30 this morning. The puppies didnt seem to mind at all, but I froze my tail off when I took them out at 6:30 a.m. for a potty break. As you can see most of the ivy is starting to fall without even turning red. I suspect the cold weather last night and tonight will finish it off.

Hope you have a good week and I will post again when there is something new to report!

I guess that I will have a lot of raking to do when I get home. The Scarecrow/pirate looks great! I wish that I could spend Halloween with you and the puppies(and still get paid for being down here.
