#13 – The Altar Of MBRS

Photo taken: February 2, 2012

Thanks to a mother who watched a lot of horror movies when I was a kid, I had and still to some extent have reservations about being in the dark.  So when the power went out in the middle of a late, late Thursday night… I had no choice but to sit in the dark with a flashlight and candles and wait for it to come back on (Which it did…. at about noon the next morning).  Since sitting in the dark without technology can be extremely boring, the candles gave me an idea to take the squirrel lawn ornament I had just painted to look like my red squirrel character MBRS (remember her?) and set her on top of the entertainment center in front of the blank TV.  This photo looks creepy now as I type this post in broad daylight.  I can’t believe I actually set it up at about 4 in the morning when every light in the entire neighborhood was out.  The reflection of the candles really make MBRS look evil as all get out….. yikes!

  1. I would run to the next howltel … powerless and with this squirrel that sounds like the start of one of THAT movies ;O)

  2. I dunno…it looks more like a marzipan squirrel which makes me think I’m more hungry than scared. Although those eyes are a bit troubling, I’m still hungry. 🐾

    It is always eerie when the power goes out. Love the photo! 🙂

    • I’ve got some really cool photos of sunset during a storm power outage we had back in June. Right after I started the countdown or I may have added one of them. I’ll try to remember to show them off sometime in the new year…

  4. She does have a bit of evil about her…..instead of a tail behind her head it looks like a vampirish (?) cape hood…..she’s about to sacrifice an acorn to the God of darkness when…whammo….the lights come back on and she’s just a painted squirrel. Talk about a downer!


    • Neat! The tail does look like a cape! I hadn’t notice that before. Given that MBRS was kinda Mitzi before there was Mitzi, it’s troublesome to see her with such an evil look while she has nuts in her paws!

    MBRS, now there’s a blast from the past!
    You have reservations about being in the dark so you thought you’d construct a terrifying satanic squirrel alter of dark rites while you waited for the power to come back on…

  6. Candlelight is lovely in the summer. Boring, but lovely. in the winter, the cold starts to take out your toes!

    Cool looking squirrel. i don’t think she looks creepy. I think she looks sorts of romantic.
