I found this bizarre face staring over the fence at me after turning off on a shortcut from my daily loop. Like a sudden splash of cold water in my face, it was an unexpected morning dose of comic relief. I found myself shocked right out of my regular state of mind and it was so refreshing, laughing out loud on the spot with nobody present but myself and this unusual character. He (or she?) wanted to get so much closer than I would permit. Would he bite me? or kiss me? He revealed a large set of gleaming white teeth and it conjured up an image of the donkey in Shrek, so a kiss would not have surprised me! It’s a “Hello Friday, come get me!” kind of a start.
