During our sunny Memorial Day weekend, the kids did their annual rebuilding of Dude the Scarecrow with our friend Isaac who was visiting from Portland. With a dapper “new” set of overalls and straw hat, there was a lot of good material to work with this time.
Stuffing the scarecrow with straw is always a good time. The kids like to make him very fat and then adjust the stuffing around once the overalls are on.
It’s fun seeing the kids so pleased with their work.
With the addition of an old pair of River’s sunglasses and a flower tucked in the hat brim by Rosemary, Dude was living up to his name.
Now the varmints, birds and marauding creatures of the McKenzie should get the message loud and clear to stay away. Dude is on patrol.
