Here's the scarecrow I made today, Luau Larry, ready to hit the links. Oh no, looks like he's already on the course and in the rough. Go back to gardening Larry, your golf game is horrible!

It's now September and while my thoughts are turning to my winter garden full of veggies and blooms, Larry, like many men from coast to coast, is preparing for a different ritual of Fall. No not football, but tracking elusive prey in the great outdoors. That's right, it's American Sportsman Larry, out in the field looking for game. Chuck's decided the safest perch is on top of Larry's head, and it also gives him a front row seat to the action.

Saturday my wife & I were pulling out of the driveway and she told me "people" think I'm crazy because of Larry and I told her I was just having some harmless fun and the kids really like Larry. To illustrate my point, 3 teen aged girls were walking on the other side if the street, saw Larry, crossed the street and stopped to admire him, couldn't have found a better way to end the discussion.

Guess I forgot to post this one. Larry got ready to travel as he thought he was going on our Baltic cruise and got the flags of all 7 countries we went to; The Netherlands, Germany, Sweden, Finland, Russia, Estonia and Denmark, only to find out he was staying to guard the garden while we were gone.

Just love thay Larry. He finds more holidays and situations to dress up for. I sing his praises to so many folks.

Haboob got him? His torso is foam? No problems getting soaked during monsoon season (there was NOTHING not soaked through here in Chino Valley yesterday).

quiltygirl, yes, his armature is pvc pipe and his torso and arms are high density foam; head is a styrofoam wig form covered in burlap. we've had 2.9" since the beginning of June and other than the haboob that got him, he's stood up well to the elements.

Val, I prefer beer during a dust storm, it's harder for the dust to get into the bottle top.

Catching up on photos of Larry. Here he is dressed up for the Fourth of July, Labor Day, rooting for the Packers and all dressed up for Fright Night.
