Bayou Wood Oddities

Part of what I like most about Bayou Woods are the occasional oddities that pop of nowhere. One of my favorite moments is laying out by the pool and watching this old german man prance around the outskirt of the pool with this horse costume on playing his guitar. I kept blinking, pinching myself, wondering if I was dreaming because really it was that odd. Christine and I have had several other weird run-ins with him and now I walk really fast when he comes near.


The other day was another one of those rare days. Keegan and I decided to go for a walk and passed this overcrowded planted balcony. For some reason I never noticed it before so I looked at it closely. Then "it" startled me. I looked closer and yes...this is what I saw. A armless beach bum mannequin with sunglasses on. It was one of those times that I really wished someone was with me because I was dying laughing. I later got to relive the moment wtih Christine as she busted out her zoom lens to take this picture.



What will I ever do when I move from this place?

I would give anything to have been with y'all during these encounters. I can only imagine the laughter.

What will you do for entertainment when you move? Keegan will never remember the German man in a horse costume--you'll have to put it in a scrapbook and tell him about it later.

That is hilarious!! I can just imagine you laughing. It's a little creepy though!

That's hysterical!
BTW, your confession on Courtney's "Please don't laugh" prompted me to write about my "blankie" that I still sleep with ! Glad I am not alone....
Hope you are doing well.....

You can mark this off on strange things to see today list. I miss you in staff meetings, but I dutifully mark off each item we discuss on the agenda just like you were there at the meeting. Only thing when I laugh about finally getting to cross it off I get some strange looks. Miss you!

Those are two of the weirdest things you could possible see! I really can't imagine someone walking around in a horse costume...please tell me it was Halloween!

I'm wheezing like I did when Christine jumped on our bed at Lake Tomahawk. I go by a house on my walks that has 6 plastic chickens in his yard, and occasionally they are moved around. But nothing compares to the beach bum mannequin.
