FYBF - The Scarecrow Edition!

Well, finally getting off my ever expanding arse and joining in to a FYBF again! And I am here to offer evidence of why my blogging has dropped off of late: my life is NUTS!

This weekend is the annual Scarecrow Festival on our little mountain. Yes, once a year we mad mountain people enter competition with each other to see who can create the best scarecrow. I kid you not. Last year our friends amazing effort was torched - which is why we will be bringing ours in at night this year. Due to the circumstances of 2010 we did not enter.
We had entered two years ago.  2009. Didn't win anything, probably because I do not have a creative bone in my body and it was a piss-poor effort.

But this year we have stepped up and taken it to another level. Boy 1 and Boy 2 are old enough to seriously contribute, and Big Boy was informed early enough of our plans to be able to slot some time in. And


here you have it:

Docrow Who & T.A.R.D.I.S.

Pretty cool, eh?

We are feeling rather full of ourselves now. Will find out if we won anything on Sunday. But even if we don't we feel like winners for our effort.

Oh, and it has a flashing blue light on top of the T.A.R.D.I.S. It would have had sound effects also but my mp3 player decided to die this morning.

This is my scarecrowy FYBF... so, how's your week been?



I LOVE it. Well done you lot, hope you win something :)
