As Halloween approaches, 10- or 12-foot-tall skeletons seem to be everywhere. Once upon a time, the only giant skeleton in our area was Mr. Bones in Chico. He stood guard in front of his home year-round, until he was kidnapped a few months ago. He (or someone who looks just like him) is apparently back now, along with some more normal-sized skeletons. As for the gentleman in the photo above, he is one of two giants and a handful of smaller skeletons in a yard on Yolo Street in Orland. Look (out) for them in the coming days before Halloween.
