List of 2009 Photo Hunt themes by the week

Today, for the Photo Hunt, we have a "free week" option. I'm assuming not any particular subject; that we choose what we want to share....

Well, of course, I'm gonna try to keep the month long theme going for something dealing with Halloween. When we go out for fast food, I always want McDonald's Fish Fillet Sandwich. I've tried fish sandwiches at other fast food places and always go back to Micky-D's!!! I think it's the dill flavored tartar sauce and the not so dry fillet!! Anyway, after working in the yard one late morning, I didn't want to stop and change clothes and make us was hot, humid, and we were both quite sweaty. I scrubbed my hands and arms, wiped my face a bit...jumped in the car and drove down the street a few blocks...yep, we are conveniently located very close to a McDonald's, a Jack in the Box, a Chicken stop, and a grocery store. Nice, huh? LOL And I don't like going through their drive thru order's a waste of gasoline, it's hard on the car's engine, and besides....having to leave the window open in the car makes it not so air-conditioned. So, I park and go into the cool dining area and order. A virtual graveyard, with tombstones, skeletons, webs, and even 'real live' dirt for crying out loud!!! This is what was there in the front lobby!!! [I'm not so sure the Health Department would look at it as 'cool'....but I thought it was!!!] And, besides, this packaged dirt that you buy [it was purchased dirt, I can tell 'cause I've bought some myself several times] is a lot cleaner than what you have at picnic grounds or ballparks!!! Just above this 'graveyard' and entangled in the webbing was the day's MENU---

Maggot Stew
Assorted Eyeballs
Monster Claws
Bloody Bites
Snail Slime Surprise

and for drink/desserts...

Witch's Brew
Creepy Cookies
Coffin Cake

Yep, there is even a Teddy Bear Witch in our home, wearing his special witch's hat, bow tie and waiting patiently....All ready for the special night with his trick or treat pumpkin bag!!
