It's kind of convenient to be staying in Manitou Springs when there's a “freaky” theme
on PB because there is a reason the the town's un/official slogan is “Keep Manitou Weird.”

Can't resist the “insanity” of a Deep Thoughts quote here:
“To me, clowns aren't funny. In fact, they're kinda scary. I've wondered where this started,
and I think it goes back to the time I went to the circus and a clown killed my dad.” ~Jack Handey

This is just a tiny part of a large freaky mural on the outside wall of a shop that sells
lots of freaky stuff. I've never been inside….the items for sale in the windows scare me off!

Would you put your two year old on this kids' ride?

Whenever I walk past the life-size fortune teller sitting in the glass box
with her crystal ball…well, she kind of freaks me out a little!

Don't ask….

This little guy never blinks….NEVER!!!!!

On a Manitou Springs sidestreet - leaning against a tree in someone's front yard…..

Freakiest of all! This house sits between a stream and a park a couple miles
from the main part of town. I'm pretty sure they don't mean “with a camera.”

      Good catches, Marsha! I once saw a "Beware of Owner" sign on a house fence... I'm pretty sure THEY weren't joking either. Freaky!
