i stay in the shadows.. i walk a fine line in my isolation, with madness on either side.. so yesterday i risked sun allergy & went out treasure hunting with mr dad, in my protective hoodie of course, to check out estate sales & sale signs & run errands.. well, i am so glad i did, right off i found some vintage gumby bendys, which i always consider a good sign, & as i was counting out some quarters to buy them the older ladies there began talking gumby, so i had to mention gumbyland :) they seemed very happy to have their gumbys coming home to my house.. then i ended up in a long conversation with a local artist who had some of his acrylic abstracts out, yeah, that was me, socializing, go figure.. lols so i found incredible halloween goodies for cheap, thought i might be dreaming, leaving one house the lady there bid me 'happy halloween' & it just doesn't get much better than that, does it? fuck off, heat wave! halloween is here. treasure pix here in my ghost toy catalogue ~ http://friendlyghost.typepad.com/photos/ghost_toy_catalogue/gumby-pokey-figures.html i took pix with mr dad's phone as we ran errands too ~ http://friendlyghost.typepad.com/photos/i_love_portland/people-must-wonder-about-us.html i made a mouse-friend.. it all resulted with some pmle rash on my arms & hands, some anxiety & a migraine, but not a bad one.. a test? we want to be able to drive out & photo mt jefferson once we get fall color, & that'll be a full day.. i think i'll make it :)
