WPC: Creepy

I have a horrible habit of waking up at 2am. Some days I can roll over and go back to sleep. Other days there’s some lightening bolt of an idea. That was this morning.  I’ve had these pictures in my phone and knew which ones I’d post when I saw the weekly photo challenge prompt in my reader. But since I’ve been mulling over the post I wanted to do, two other photo opportunities have presented themselves to me.

As a kid, I went to Henry S Jacobs camp for many summers. Maybe my first or second year, we were having a campfire sing along and they started singing a song about dead puppies. I hated this song, started crying, and made them stop. I find some humor in this now, all this time later. Now, what I really find funny is Loudon Wainwright III‘s Dead Sunk in the Middle of the Road.

My sister-in-law, also referred to here as Mrs Normal, is the Normal family mix-master. She makes the best mix tapes (now cd’s, but that just doesn’t have the same ring). It was on one of this masterpieces that I found Dead Skunk and I don’t feel so guilty about the puppies.

So, this one goes out to Mrs Normal and Loudon Wainwright III.  I give you my creepy entry for this week’s photo challenge.

      1. There is your word of the week ๐Ÿ˜ƒ. Entomology is the study of insects.

        Living in a part of the U.S. I haven’t lived since I was much younger, I’m enjoying discovering all the weird bugs again. I still do NOT like the crunchy bugs

  2. I remember “Dead Skunk…” It was popular for a few weeks in the summer of 1975 (I think). Very silly. There was another song out about the same time that I cannot remember the name of it, it was a story song about a hippy who stops while traveling at a roadside bar and it is full of bikers. Hilarity ensues! The only line I remember is, “So I kicked ol’ green teeth in the knee.” I’ll have to check and see if that was a Ray Stevens song.
