G’Night Sleep Fright


I think it’s a rule- Halloween isn’t officially done until the ghouls come out and sing a song or two.

So here we go-

Now, I’m going to go and bring in my Jack-O-Lantern and my decorations.

Most of them anyway. There’s no sense in going crazy here.

After all, didn’t Charles Dickens write that we should keep Halloween in our hearts all

year long? Or was it Poe? Or did I hit the the Pumpkin Spice Egg Nog with just a taste of

brandy to hard and I have it completely wrong?

Well. No matter, it’s good advice.

I hope you had a Merry Halloween.




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 is 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.

Readers- we have  positive results!

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!
