I have been asked.
What are my plans for Halloween?
Not much, just going to hang around with some friends.
Want to meet a few of them?
Well of course you do…I’m sure they’ll be out and about your way eventually.

My Sister set out fun Halloween decorations in her front yard- skeletons, spooky cats and a coffin full of bones.
I like the traditional Halloween fare, so I took some pictures and got a little story- like the skeleton in the coffin has an ax buried in his chest- nice touch, so to speak.
My favorite part of the display wasn’t obvious and you might not notice it if you were to stop by and look around.
The squirrels have been chewing at one of the tombstones and digging around the cemetery.
I don’t know why that made me laugh but it did.
Grave Robbing Zombie Squirrels.
Gotta love it.
That could not have been you
I saw at the cemetery that day
sneaking out of your crypt in your finest
That could not have been you
I heard singing in the cemetery that day
a dark little waltz
sung sweetly off key
Please tell me it wasn’t you
I saw in the cemetery that day
calling me to join you
in my finest Sunday Clothes.
Inktober 2018: Double
When statues of Anubis turn up in my life, good things happen.
It’s like a gift or an omen, but like I said it’s always good.
Weirdest misheard song lyrics and a funny video to go with them!
We met to plan the final details for Mr. Gale’s in the Gale Family home.
It was the beginning of fall and the leaves had just started to drop from the trees.
” Just treat it like any other tradition Funeral, ” his wife told me on the day we planned Mr. Gale’s funeral. ” Flowers, candles maybe someone can read poem and can you recommend a Minster? I suppose we need one of those.”
I assured her I could see to all of these details.
” I am so glad to hear that Irene, this is such a trying time you know.”
” I do and I’m very glad I could help.”
Mrs. Gale leaned over and whispered into my ear. ” I am curious dear, how it came that you decided to become-” she was at a loss for the word which is not unusual in times like this.
I patted her arm. ” It’s the family business.”
Mrs. Gale got up and smoothed her hair and then walked over to her husband’s casket and put her gloved hand on it, somewhat cautiously. ” Oh Dear, I almost forgot. Music. Can we have music-”
The thudding and screaming resumed from inside the sealed casket.
” In case he starts up with that again ” sighed the soon to be widow.

I don’t want to be rushed.
I don’t want to fly
I don’t want to shoved ahead or pushed.
Its not that I don’t like to feel
the wind in my face
I hate to run
all of my life
I’ve been shouted at, shamed and chased.
So please feel free to soar on by
I’ll catch you up later
if I happen to come by.
