Saturdays and Pictures Hung

Saturday was the gun show in Clarinda. Though I didn’t go, I did join the guys for lunch at Mondos. They have the place really done up for Halloween. I need to get to work on mine!

There were a lot more decorations, but the place was pretty crowded so I didn’t get pics of the rest. As you’ll also note, I had their spaghetti for lunch. I love those fat noodles! I’ve been eating spaghetti there since I was a toddler, so it’s safe to say I’m pretty fond of it. 😉

We had to stop at Walmart, of course, and spent way too much, but if you’re looking for hand sanitizer, I know where you can get it.

Also of note, we got the Lord of the Rings paintings hung.

Elrond, a wood elf, giant spider, orc. Eagle, and Dwarves from the animated Hobbit.
Troll, Bard the Bowman, Thranduil, orc king, golum, Gandalf, dwarves, and Bilbo from the animated Hobbit
Lord of the Rings poem and Treebeard
Glorfindel, Elrond’s sons, Galadriel, Celeborn, Goldberry & Tom Bombadil. There was no animation for these guys then so she made them up.
Aragorn, Gandalf the White, Boromir, Legolas, Gimli, and the four Hobbits. She designed these guys, too, to match the animated Hobbit.
Eowyn, Theoden, Eomer, King Aragorn, Farimir, Denethor, and Ghan-buri-ghan
Wormtongue, Sarumon of the many colors, orc, Sauron, hand orc, troll.

So there they are and I think they look quite nice. It was probably very hard to paint in a cartoon style for my mom -it wasn’t her strong point – and to try to design characters to match that style, but I think she did a pretty good job. As I said before, I’ve always loved these and wanted to hang them up.

And now I have some work to do.

Have a mondos’ spaghetti kind of day!

Jo 🙂
