If someone in a big, black plastic tub comes up and asks you to dance at a Halloween party, it just might be me — in costume?
Yes, it looks like they moved the costumes and forgot to take the sign with them. Timing is everything, right?
Friday Fictioneer Challenge: Write a 100-word story based on the photo prompt.
Larry arrived at the lakeside, out of breath. He’d found six of the scavenger hunt items and only lacked this last one. This time I’m ahead of everyone, Larry thought, especially Mountain Mike. Larry smiled at the thought of holding up the first-place trophy.
Larry deduced that the last item was on the lake’s island; he scanned the shores for a canoe.
A wop-wop noise broke his concentration: a helicopter approached. It hovered over the island and a figure descended on a rescue line. Larry recognized the neon orange jacket even from this distance: Mountain Mike.
Curses! Foiled again!

More photos from the Buda Gearheads Car Show in the Cabela’s parking lot.
I was taking photos of the yellow Corvette when these gentlemen (who were with the yellow Corvette) announced that they “wanted to be famous, too.” I said I could only promise “almost famous” and they agreed to that, so here they are. No, I don’t know who they are. Guess they will have to settle for being anonymously almost famous.
This was one of those positive reinforcement opportunities. Cabela’s wasn’t my destination, but when I drove by I could see there was a car show in the parking lot — and I had my camera with me. It was definitely worth the detour.
The car show was hosted by the Buda Gearheads. I had a good time walking around checking out the cars.
This woman graciously agreed to get her photo taken. Her daughter poked her head out the car window just as I took the photo, which made the photo even better for me.
Judy and I went on a field trip to Cameron, Texas, to check out the Milam County Courthouse. It was completed in 1892 in the Renaissance Revival style. The courthouse was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1977. And the clock works!
We could see lots of birds flying around the statue (Justice), but this is as close as I could get with my lens. From where we were, and considering the size of the statue, they looked like gnats.
