Halloween and Mike, the Fedex Guy

You know you live in a small town when you answer the phone and on the other end you here
"Hey Angie, it's Mike. I've got a huge shipment for you and I'm not going to be there until 5:00, maybe later".
That would be Mike the Fedex Guy.
So, I spent my Friday evening unpacking boxes, hating that I was leaving Carol with a
mess of cardboard to put out the next morning.
However, there was Halloween in the boxes, and you all know I've laid the background for this.
So, I will admit to enjoying putting it together. There's even some orange in it... but I like it!
This guy is big. Notice that he is hanging from an old porch column.



Mr. Funny Bones. Hmmm... I like him too!



Okay, I admit to ordering these little crows from a catalog without having seen them up close for myself, but they are great.



And this little lady? Looks like she got her skirt from the Magic Jacket.

Cute Halloween things. Your story made me laugh. I have that on a Swedish site and thought how cool so I added it to mine. My friend told me the chirping scared her dog and she kept searching for it.

Fun stuff Angie!
Gotta love the Fed-Ex guy -(give 'em a cookie once in awhile, get their cell number and they'll do you a favor when you are late getting a shipment out... - speaking from personal experience here!)

Hey Ms.GAV, your friend searching for it gives me peace... at least I didn't get up and try to find it, wait, yes I did, but don't tell anyone.
Hey Ms. GC... have taken note and will make sure I have a stash of cookies ready and waiting!

Back when I worked for the vet we needed the UPS guy to come back. We called the main office. They asked- what's his name? We said, don't know but he's really cute, has good legs, and an earring.
The dispatcher had a good laugh and sent our guy right back.

Joe introduced himself to us that day so next time we could ask for him by NAME.
