The New Frankin Run/Walk Fundraiser

An annual fundraiser the New Frankin Volunteer Fire Department Run/Walk takes place every year. It gets bigger and bigger. It's 20 dollars to run/walk the 1, 3, or 5 miles and participants receive a T-shirt, hot dogs, potato chips, fruit, and donuts. It's the tradition of the volunteer firemen to walk with all their gear no matter what the weather. It's quite the local tradition and the walk, all country back roads, is simply stunning.

Halloween, Kenosha, Wisconsin

It was Halloween and all the kids are out trick or treating. The neighborhood was filled with costumed kids and parents, but this creepy clown guy...what the hell?  He/she? was so, so, sooo, yuk.  Get away. I like to think he was just a dad supervising his kids but he seemed to be coming up every driveway we did.  One teenager girl came barreling down the street screaming when she spotted this clown.  Some people have a clown phobia, Coulrophobia.  This one wasn't funny.
