About a month ago a guy stopped me on the street and asked me for directions.
He seemed really desperate and told me he was late and had no idea where his destination was and that he had gotten lost.
I thought I knew exactly how to get to where he needed to go so I told him the way with the utmost confidence.
As both of us walked away from one another I slowly began to realize that the directions I gave him totally weren't to the place he needed to get to and that I had absolutely no idea where that place was and I mixed it up with something else.
I basically led him somewhere that would have caused him to be even later and more lost than he already was.

So the other day I happened to run into that same guy
immediately recognized him as the guy I gave the wrong directions to.
We didn't say anything to one another.
He just looked at me and gave me a nod of disapproval and walked away.
Happy Sunday!

Is that a scarecrow?

For many years in Saugus I would drive by this house and see these sculpture things in this person's yard but I never had any idea who made them. I've just learned that it's a guy who is a landscaper/artist type.

I've alway loved the vibe of his yard.
It kind of looks like a scene from a Tim Burton movie
at any moment Edward Scissor Hands will walk out the front door and wave at you.

3 Things that I have no intention of ever doing in my lifetime include:

1) Riding in a dog sled pulled by dogs

2) Riding on a carriage pulled by horses

3) Riding on one of those mini carriage/buggy things pulled by a person riding a bike

filed under information you didn't ask for but seem to be getting anyway
