The Dog and The Scarecrow

Standard

Howard the Scarecrow, has long been part of the archery range.  He is not a target, his goal as an obstacle  standing the place where not to shoot with arrows.

Howard has lived over half-year, after last Halloween.

Today, however take your hat off and bow your head in remembrance.

Howard is dead. He lived a life of danger and adventure, dodging arrows slung his direction.  Occasionally he got hit, but he always came back smiling.

But, his days were numbered.  Howard the scarecrow, skilled and dedicated he was to Archery.

Honey the dog became bored and the tragedy of his demise at the hands (Paws?) of the out-of-control dog.  He looked like the Scarecrow off the Wizard of Oz after the flying monkeys finished with him.  Parts of him were ………………………………….>over here!< and some were……………………………….>over there!< ………. His head was ……………………..>lost for awhile.< …. found under a pile of rags.

I have put his legs and arms on the table in the patio, tomorrow is Saturday, I’ll try to see if I can reassemble him, but I think Howard is a multi-trauma victim and has injuries incompatible with life.

Howard is retiring with full honors. He  gave his all, stout of heart, strong of fiber, just not dog-proof.

Good bye Howard the Scarecrow, you’ll be missed.
