Crappy Candy Cornucopia

October. Most normal kids are preoccupied with what “they will be” for Halloween. For other kids, it’s Halloween every day, so, no big deal. Boof. My teen step-son is delighted with volunteering at a local haunted house thing which is kind of a big deal around here. Fright At The Fort is held at Fort Knox (not that one).

This year it’s a Stephen King theme. Say what you want about his politics and desperate need for an editor but the guy has written some classic horror novels. Anyway, he’s in the Children Of The Corn part of the tour.

He’s pretty funny with his assessment of the crowd. As the evening wears on the attendees grow older, drunker and higher on marijuana. Some of the drunken idiots don’t take kindly to screaming like a schoolgirl in front of their dates. Every part of the exhibit has adult bouncers in it thankfully.

Mystical Mycology Monday: Faerie Rings

Tough weekend here.  Filled with regret over the move at this point, wish I could go back to June 2017 and slap myself, but that’s not going to happen.   Have to try and make the best of it now that we’re here.  Going to head out at first light and try to clear some manure out of the horse pens so rain and snow melt in the springtime won’t just sit up at the surface.  Hoping a little more time outdoors will help my depression, or at least force me to think things through without the distraction of all the glowing rectangles that surround me at my desk.

Saturday, I’m out driving with Possum and I see a giant one of these:

Roughly 30′ across, and the caps all had to be 8′ across.  It was big enough that someone else was already stopped to take a picture of it.  It’s a fascinating phenomenon, and even mycologists are still divided on the exact cause.

Brews from around the World

So I was thinking about the various brews that I’ve sampled over the years – I don’t know why.

There was a place in Key West that was a lot of fun, large beer list and you got a t-shirt if you were able to finish one of each of theire beers.

Then there’s a place in China called the Beer Lady.
