My Brother-in-law, lives somewhere in the mid-west. And on a normal October night he would be graced with TP covering his yard and trees.
He is well liked in his community. You can read more about that from yesterday’s post.
But this time, while my Mother and Father-in-law were visiting……
my Brother-in-law received a strange delivery during the night.
It seems that when he was leaving for work, he discovered a strange being, sitting in his front yard.
A yard loafer.
Fred takes up residence in your front yard and stays there until you pay to have him removed.
His eyes glow a menacing red. While his toilet bowl glows an eerie blue.
Oh, he’s friendly and all. Waving at all who pass by.
But he sits there, loafing. Until he is physically moved to another unsuspecting yard.
You see, Fred is a member of the local fire department. He helps raise funds by volunteering to loaf around in the yards of the local townspeople.
He cops a squat in someones yard and resides there until the resident of that home pays a $10.00 fee to have him removed.
Quite a clever fund-raising idea they’ve came up with in the mid-west.
I hope this catches on all across the United States.
I like the Halloween theme. Not all people do.
But that would give them a reason to pay the fee a little quicker, to get him to find another yard to loaf around in.
I like Fred, the yard loafer!
How about you?
Do they do this, or something similar, in your town?
If so, I’d love to see some pictures!!!
