I've been meaning to write something about our neighbors for some time. They are really quite interesting. M creates art cars, so there are always several parked in front and in back of the house. One time I saw M leaving the house dressed in a shaggy brown bear costume and wearing roller blades. Unfortunately, I didn't have my camera at the time. But never fear! M is always dressing up and doing something else funny and crazy.
The other day we saw her pulling out of the drive with a new large contraption tied to the top of her car. It looked like a giant blue donut and was strung with lights. That's not too crazy considering the rest of her car is decorated to look like a polar bear. We ran into M on Saturday and found out the annual Art Car Parade was that night!
After dinner we drove down to the Lake of the Isles and started driving around looking for the parade of cars.
Aha! There they are!
And there's M!

One of the stranger, home-made vehicles:
And of course, no Art Car Parade is complete without the obligatory human-powered bicycle car...
...and the ugly old brown couch vehicle:
