Better late than never......

I added a short description, below, of each picture for y'all.

Ghoulie Gourds

When 12 o’clock draws near
A pair of Ghoulie Gourds appear !
A rowdy, randy twosome,
Kinda shocking and oh so gruesome!
No, this ain’t no time for saints,
But plenty “o” time for haints !

by Flora Thompson

I drilled holes on top of head and inserted hooks, then epoxied them.

Run don't walk, don't even hesitate
