Well this "Frock on Friday" post is a day late, for good reason though!! I think it was the most weirdest Fof for me so far yet. I was waiting for the Mr. to get home from work so we could go out and take my Friday frock pictures. I told him I wanted to take a drive out to the rural farmland. (Being a person who loves farms!) So we hopped in the vehicle and set out to take these photos.
I had my post pretty much worked out in my head but in the end NOTHING went as planned.
We reached my chosen destination and the Mr and I got out and were ready to snap some photos... I was about to climb up on a big boulder and strike a pose when I inhaled the most FOULEST smell I have ever smelt. I looked in front of me and [If your squeamish quit reading NOW!!!!] There was a black garage bag tossed behind the rock. Surrounding the bag the ground was blood soaked and there was maggots everywhere. I turned my head and covered my nose and mouth and bolted for the vehicle. "Come on" I said to Mr. Coco. There is something dead in there and it smells horrible.
I told Mr. we should phone the police because.... well you never know what could be in the bag and just in case it's something important or well evidence I would feel bad if we just left and never said anything.
We drove about a mile and a half from the "Disgusting place" and stopped to call the police. After the whole incident... I was so grossed out and COULD STILL smell whatever it was thrown behind the rock. But I managed to take a few photos with the self timer while Mr was on the phone and Mr took a couple while we waited for the police.
When he told the dispatcher what we found she asked if we could please stay there and she would get someone out right away. We stayed right where we were to wait there was no way I was getting any closer to that Horrific scent.
The dress was found in a church thrift for about 75 cents. It's homemade and reminds me of something a vampire lady would wear. Mr. thought I looked like a Priestess dragon slayer!!! *lol*
The beautiful head band was a contest win from Desiree @ pullyoursoxup
About 25 minutes later the police showed up. "She could even smell the foulness from a mile and a half away." We took her to the area of the nasty thing... She first took photos of the scene. (I stayed in the vehicle for two reasons "I am very squeamish" and was slightly worried the bag could contain human remains or a household pet.) If I ever seen any of those things the image would be branded in my mind forever and I would be traumatized. *SERIOUSLY*
*Police takes photos while talking to Mr. Coco*
Okay so the police didn't really want to open the bag either. She was talking to Mr. Coco putting on her black rubber gloves. Mr. Coco said.... I was going to look in the bag but I didn't have any gloves or anything. She said " I HAVE GLOVES and I don't want to open the bag!!!"
The bag was actually moving because of all the maggots inside *shiver*
It turns out someone threw a bag of fish guts behind the rock?!?! WTF!!!
What a weird place to un-load your fish guts.... out in the country on a roadside pull-in.
The police said she was happy that it wasn't human remains.... because there is a missing woman and when we told them what we came across they were worried it might have something to do with that case.
All I can say is THANK GOD it didn't.
So after all this rigmarole by the time I got home I had to go to work and couldn't post my FOF!!
In Happier and less yucky news I got something lovely in the mail!!!
Member my seashell necklace?? Well Vix had a string at her house she no longer needed and said she would send it to me. It was packaged in this pretty little 1930s box complete with a lovely little tassel on the front drawer. Oh and look at the SEXY fairy on the card. *RAWRRRR*
I did burst out laughing when Vix's first words were "HELLO LOO!"
Loo is the nickname I have for my Mr. and he has the same nickname for me.
We have been Loo & Loo for years now. We rarely even call each other by our real names.
Thank you so very much Vix. I promise to do something wondrous with the string of shells.
*Mourning over the fish guts*
P.s. Just recently got finished Garage saling, I didn't find too much but I did find a few things I will post soon. One of them was a 1962 white Samsonite vanity case that has the initial M on both of the front latches!! *YAY* M for Melanie!! It's a little dirty but I will see how it cleans up.
I suppose it was a surprise early Birthday Present from the thrifting Gods. Because I have never found any luggage with M's before. My Birthday is exactly 1 month from Yesterday and just like last year.... I am NOT counting the sleeps!!! But the good news is I am less worried about getting 1 year older than I was last year... Last year I was FREAKING OUT!!!
