Allegan Fair

Last month I took my parents to the Allegan county fair, it's about 45 minutes from Kalamazoo. This place is huge, we go each year. You can see the giant chicken statue in the top left photo that is at the entry-way to the fair.

Other than the rides and animal barns and food / game booths, this fair also has several large vendor pavilons and a neat historical village including an industrial museum. I won a yellow teddy bear for mom. In one of the photo's you will see the famous 'Worlds Largest Puzzle'. I don't know if that is a true claim, but the thing it pretty darn big. I didn't take pictures of the 'Worlds Largest Hog' nor the 'Worlds Smallest Pony' neither the 'Worlds Biggest Alligator'...

I figured the Puzzle would be entertainment enough for ya.


Halloween is closing in fast and the veil between worlds is gonna end up 'broken' on October (or Octogre for you Piers Anthony fans out there) 31st. This ToolGhoul tends to show up on that night roaring around on mag wheels and a nasty sense o' humor. Kalamazoo is krazy on Halloween and he definitly adds to the festivities.

So the next time you hear a loud and evil sounding motor rev-ving up and the smell of candle wax is pervasive on Halloween in are probably gonna get chased for a while...unless you got some candy to use as a bribe!

BOO !!!

What the...!
Litter Bugs !


This week's Illustration Friday's word is 'Remote'. This word was submitted by my buddy Kevin (K's DiseasedWits) several months ago. His old blog is gone, but his new one (see previous parentheses) has his current work. He doesn't have comments turned on, but you can still email him your thoughts and good wishes-

As for me, my old blog here is still kickin', and now I present my submission for this week. Not only is he on 'remote' control, my FrankenBolt was also done a remote time ago (about 5 years past). And oldie, but a goodie, this scribble was quite fun to put down as I recall.

Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster

I'm not making this up...

There rilly is a Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster here and if you go there you will see a website proposing a THIRD theory of existence. The first two are EVOLUTION and INTELLIGENT DESIGN. The 'Pastafarians' are spreading the word about the FLYING SPAGHETTI MONSTER, who apparently created the whole universe- including mountains, trees, and midgets.

Many people are converting to this religion, some of the reasons are:
1. Flimsy moral standards
2. Every Friday is a religious holiday
3. Flying Spaghetti Monster heaven includes a beer volcano and a stipper factory
4. Adherents end prayers with 'RAMEN' not 'AMEN'

They have several written accounts of a Flying Spaghetti Monster creating the universe. They have t-shirts. They have a chart showing global warming average temperatures vs the number of pirates over the past 200 years.

In conclusion I would like to say, WWFSMD( What Would Flying Spaghetti Monster Do )?



Looks like you're getting the cold shoulder there...
You might wanna start apologizing to her REAL fast, before there'z trouble!

Yes, it's me. I'm back bugging all of you on Illustration Friday.
Boo !!!
