Fall in the Country

 We drove out in the country again last weekend.

 It's really looking like Thanksgiving now.

 We were headed to a Christmas fair that ended up being a real bust.

 But we saw some interesting things like this large burger dude.  Sort of scary.

 Lots of barns.

 Most of the corn has been cut by now.

 A Halloween house.




 This place was spooky.  If you click it to enlarge it, you will see lots of dog houses and each one of them had a dog peering out from inside.

 Turkey time.


 Sometimes we drove on dirt roads.


 Amish cutting wood.




And an Amish farmhouse.

I guess not every Fair ends up being a good one. Too bad. Nice drive though.

Looks like a village for horror stories.

Weird. When we drive across the state, there always seems to be a lot of doghouses.
Maybe the next fair will be better

The mid-west has a special kind of beauty this time of year.

You did get a bunch of good country ones. I think the cowboy dude may have started out as one of those guys that stood in front of a tire place and actually held what ever brand of tire in one hand. Someone found a hat for him and painted him. The original guy reminded me of paul bunyan for some reason. Dunlop tires, can't remember?

Jaz,

The countryside is beautiful, I love all of your pictures. I'm sorry to hear the fair wasn't a good one. Maybe the next one will be.

Those awful looking shacks with the dog in that tiny "dog house" was really upsetting to me. To be enclose in such a place..what a horrible life..
The other photo's were so nice. The countryside was beautiful. The large white house was nice but not much warmth. It seemed cold.
I wish there were place to drive like that out here.

Too bad the fair was a bust, great pics though. I know that dude, he's about 2 hours north of where I was born and raised.
