    But yours has a certain je ne sais quoi. I'm sure yours likes good wine better… 😉

    "Our body type was made to nurse the clan's babies as we slogged across the Plains of Passage"

    Love that reference.

    I like your picture better!

    But yours reminds me of "The Scream"–and his is…a skull (shhh!).

    Love the "googolplexed great-grandfathers"!

    "Squaw Currant reduction" huh? How DO you come up with this stuff? Your skeleton is very imaginative; groomeo's is a very good replica of a skull -both well done but I think they would be of different genres, aren't they? Does "genre" apply to art too?

  5. kmkat says:

    Yes, but which of you is master/mistress of the well-turned phrase? Huh? I think you.

    Well evolved bosoms beats long, lean and stringy anyday of the googolmilennium.

    I think your skeleton head is very sweet with his (his?) cute little heart for a nose.

    A Native American from the Great Plains once informed me that I would not be much sought after in his tribe because women big enough to plant in front of the teepee flap in howling winter storms were much preferred. So you see, it's all relative.

    Groomeo's a show off. You should beat him with a stick. Since he's so skinny, he has no cushion to absorb the blows.

    Wow, Groom is a fantastic artist. I'm sure your talents lie in areas where your hubs is mightily deficient. Like drawing for children. Now why would he draw something so scary? Yours was so much more kid friendly.

    See what I mean?

    I agree with Jeni – they're two different styles, and that makes it difficult to compare them and figure out which one is truly superior. Yours is more cartoonish, like a Scooby Doo villian, and his is more realistic, like Gray's Anatomy. It's like comparing the Mona Lisa and Picasso's Weeping Woman – depending on your criteria, either is better.

    well, but, ahem, yours has all that hair ! (?) and YOU have an amazing blog!! and can tell hilarious stories about the bra mysteries – THAT he cannot do!

    How did you manage to make a skeleton look friendly and cute?

    My Mom's side of the family was more the squooshy child-bearing body and I took after the small, lean folks on my Dad's side (built for travel, I say). My OB was convinved I'd not be able to deliver a big baby, but sometimes body types are deceptive.

    I so married DOWN genetically. So I was all laughing and making jabs at my genetically inferior husband as I read your post then I read how at least you were canny enough to marry up … wait not only did I marry down I was DUMB enough to do so.

    I am the luckiest girl in the world to have my husband.

  14. Becky Cazares says:

    A perfect Halloween post! Well, a day early, that is. Any chance you and Groom would care to parry with pumpkin art? Tomorrow? For Thanksgiving? Perhaps?

  15. Jenn @ Juggling Life says:

    You BOTH draw better skeletons than I do.

  16. Midlife Jobhunter says:

    "I applaud your yearly recommitment and the fact that Lily–now probably "Loony"–will finally get dragged off the prairie."

    hahhahhahahahahahahahahhahhahhahhaaa! Made me laugh just a little too much. Had to let you know.

    I'm not a prodigeous or prolific bearer of babies.When you hear those stories of women giving birth and working in the fields the next day, or after a pioneering or nomadic life, partaking in the next great walk to the far-distant water source, I'd be the one slowly expiring under the birthing tree mumbling feebly,"just go on without me-go!go!".It's a family joke.(A bit like how I feel on Christmas Day come to think of it, especially if it's me that's been the hostess.)I like your skeletons.What a great welcome to your front door and the wonderful people that live there!

  18. Patois says:

    Bash the bastard's head in, I say. Let's see that skeleton in real life, eh?

  19. Lisa @ Boondock Ramblings says:

    Yeah, but his is so realistic. I mean, who wants realistic for Halloween? Geesh. Seriously. How lame.

    Yeah, sometimes it is like that with my husband too — he's brilliant. No common sense or internal sensor, but otherwise he is brilliant. And dang that bugs me.

  20. lime says:

    his damned skull even has perfect teeth.

    the whole genetic thing is a conundrum for me since i am adopted and have no history which to regard, except in a general sense as a half greek. that said, i am taking all the credit for the boy's linebacker shoulders because no one in my husband's family has such broad shoulders and i get blamed for passing on inferior genes in other ways.

    but since i am small and squooshy and amply bosomed perhaps back on the plains of passages my great gogoleplexed grandma played a little slap and tickled with your googleplexed grandfather, which might explain some of the other uncanny similarities we bear.

    I prefer your skeletal avatar because it does not attempt to mirror reality, but rather to convey and idea.

  22. Chantal says:

    LOL but your is so current, and modern. Kind of like the skull when the skin is torn off the Terminator. The Terminator in Terminator 1, the best one. So see, yours rocks!

    I hate it when I get outdone by Mr. D. Lucky for me I have the superior gene pool.
