Trail CAmera SUCCESS!

I caught this guy on camera. What a surprise to find this in our yard:
 I was shocked, then I zoomed in and realized it is only a friendly hamburger and Ice cream monster.
 OKay you know Imma joking.

 I had this pile of concrete and block rubbish in the back yard since removing it for the  door in the new house. My big plans were to break it unto small stone size pieces and use it as a border around the bushes out front.

Alas it was too big a job for this old man so I  scollopped a design around two cedar trees in the corner and threw it all in. The big pieces just seemed to call for some paint. I have done a lot of Disney characters so I decided to make my own monster. Originally he was supposed to be saying, "MMMMM Delicious concrete to eat", but I gave him a hamburger and some Sherbet on a cone. I think he is happy and until I get the energy to smash the pieces he will stay.

Thanks for stopping by for my silliness.

You are just too funny! You have a rock garden! I have a rock to paint but its only the size of my hand and I cant get in the mood to buy paint! I have an idea though. You just made me start thinking about it again. Maybe ill pick up some paint tomorrow. I need one more color.
Its gonna be cute, I think.

Too funny! I love it! When the kids were little and we took walks in the neighborhood, I was always on the lookout for fun things like this to see. We would have enjoyed walking by your place to see this display (provided it is in the front yard!)

You can think of more jobs to do. Maybe you should just leave the paintings there. Are there any kids in the neighborhood to enjoy them, not that adults won't enjoy them too.

I like your rock garden and would not change a thing. Nice to do something fun now and then! Hope you leave it just the way it is !

LOL, now he's cute. I love your concrete garden. Now if you want to garden a bit, you can easily lay succulents like Hen and Chicks, Aloe, etc, anything that can survive heat and little soil under them, and they will take off and you will have a legit rock garden. I love the way you scalloped the edge.
Do you ever sleep? lol
love from up north. We did get the edge of the snow storm, only a few inches here with lots of drifting. It'll be gone by Mon. when another northern heat wave comes along. Bill won't even have to plow this lil bit.

I hope this finds you and yours doing well. May we display your linked header on our new site directory, As it is now, the site title (linked back to its home page) is listed, and we think displaying the header will attract more attention.

If you are concerned about me being up to no good, please do a Google search for SiteHoundSniffs (with or without the .com). The results should prove that it is meant to be a very good thing.

Specifically, what we are wanting to do is take a screenshot of your header and display it (linked back to the homepage) in place of the text-link. If you will visit, it should be easy to see how having a displayed header makes an individual site more attractive to visitors and SiteHoundSniffs look better. You do not have to do a thing but grant permission. There is absolutely no charge, nor will there ever be.

I like the concrete to eat idea, very cute. I'm glad there is SOME JOB you are pausing on. You are a busy man, but taking pause on doing too much can be good at times too. Silly, but when you are it is often in a sweet way(sherbet anyone?)

This is great! :)))
... but I sure need to have my eyes checked. When I first looked (on my phone) at your first picture, I thought the cone on the right was actually a lady wearing a two-tone hat ... but a rather risqué open blouse. (No wonder the Franken-rock in the center was leering.)


love that burger the best. it looks mighty appetizing. all you need is a picnic lunch to go with your new art rocks.
