Adam: You can see us without the sheets?
Lydia: Of course I can see you.
Adam: Well, how is it you see us and nobody else can?
Lydia: Well, I’ve read through that handbook for the recently deceased. It says: ‘live people ignore the strange and unusual. I, myself, am strange and unusual.
Barbara: You look like a regular girl to me.
A quote from one of my favorite movies, Beetlejuice. And I can relate to it very well. I’ve always been a little weird. I always saw the beauty in the abstract. I look beyond the face value and see something a little different. I can appreciate the strange and unusual. And as far as I can tell, so does my daughter. She loves to see the weird things. She loves bugs and finds them “cute”. She loves to get dirty and roll around in the mud. She comes up with unique and strange names for her cuddle toys, her friends, and her stories are like out of a sci-fi novel. She and I are the perfect pair.
This weekend we went on a little adventure. Hopped up into the truck and went to a place called The Swetsville Zoo. Its a really neat place, completely made up of scrap metal sculptures. Dinosaurs, bugs, strange creatures and more. Its been around for 30 years, free of charge and right off the Interstate. Great little rest stop if you’re traveling and want to see the weirdness that Colorado has to offer. (For other great and weird events in Colorado go here and here) Here are some photos of The Swetsville Zoo. Enjoy and maybe you will find yourself here one day!
