Someone just down the road from me put up one of those 9 foot skeletons in their front yard before Halloween. It is still there, and now sporting a Santa hat. I guess by March it will be dressed as a leprechaun.In larger cities, when neighbors decorate their front lawns, they tend to keep the decorations very 'specific' to the Holiday in question: ghosts, zombies and spooky stuff come out at Halloween, while Santa and the reindeer make their appearance as Christmas nears. But in smaller towns, there's more of an "anything goes" spirit, and it's socially acceptable to "mix and match" - as this ghoulish apprentice Elf-in-Training demonstrates.

Awesome vibes in that image! I believe Oakville might be in the Willamette Valley, east of Corvallis. There are an endless number of charming, run-down small towns throughout that huge geographic space.
Lovely colorful, gently moody image. I really like the feel of it!Just about every small town (in North America, at least) has at least one rusted ancient pickup truck sitting somewhere alongside one of the main streets. Unclear whether it's for sale - or abandoned - or just enjoying the fresh air after decades cooped up inside an equally ancient garage.
