You Just Had To Ask Her, Didn’t You?

Sometimes when I join in on Flashback Fridays I find things I forgot about and I’ll go over them and think- wow, that was kind of cool.

Then there are things that I look at and think- Anita, what the Heck? But those are the posts that I like the best because they’re strange and weird and I enjoy them.

Here’s one of those little weird ones reposted here For Fandango’s Flashback Friday

First Posted  August 20, 2018

I  can be


and happy


and delightful

all at the same time.


I am like

a stained glass window

caught in the walls

of an abandoned church

where ghosts  and demons

play cards and shoot dice

at Midnight

for fun.

Purple Monsters and Other Scary Things


I’m always looking for ways to kick start a story,this is one way I do it- in a pinch I Google.

It’s not full proof though. Do you know what happens if you Google Monsters/Scary/Purple  because you need a little inpirsation? Nothing happens. That’s what you get. Nothing except for fuzzy cute monsters and that’s not what I am going for at all.

However, if you go to Google Arts and culture, open your mind and you explore the art collection by color you will score in a big way- I’ve posted my finds below.

Also if you go to YouTube and are willing to nose around under the same description- but you know that there’s at least one song out there about Purple People Eaters you might get lucky and run across something new like this:

Mekheski – Moon People
Nicholas Roerich1915/1915

The Lucky Hand (scene 1) Arnold Schoenberg1910

The Merry-go-round Walter Spies1922 – 1922

I think lightning is pretty darn scary so I did find this with a little effort:


 I used a color to give the Muses a place to start working from and it works most of the time- and it’s fun. Have you tried it?



Let’s Catch Up

There are 74 days to Halloween and I thought it might be nice to catch up:


If you’d like to take a look at the fun posts I’ve put up heading towards Halloween here are a few of my links:

and here is a post I wrote last year about the fun I had carving a Pumpkin because I have been eagerly checking out the Pumpkin field I drive by everyday and I’m looking forward to doing a little carving SOON so here’s my carving adventure from  2021:

It’s Called:

“I Used A Big Knife”

I decided to carve my pumpkin because I wanted the seeds. Still. I almost stopped here because  I thought it looked pretty cool at this point:

I was standing there, staring at that big knife stuck in my pumpkin and something in me

wanted to keep cutting. I blame feeling on all of those Halloween movie ads that are

playing all over the place.

I’ll ‘fess up. I gleefully  went with my gut and started to cut away and before I know it

it was time to pop the top.

At times like this you know an autopsy saw and a hammer w/ hook would come in handy.

Surgery is going fine this point and the patient’s vitals are pumpkin-ish and holding steady.

Post- Op Update.

My dog, Hamish Macbeth, tried to eat the patient. I made him dress up like a butterfly so he’s having issues right now

Patient is in a secure area and is now resting comfortably.

Let’s do a little victory dance because I didn’t hack off my fingers . Hey, YOU try to carve a pumpkin with long newly manicured long  nails- it is NOT easy.

Ready for Halloween Night!
