happy halloween

Being short means you can go out trick or treating for Halloween for the rest of your life, I keep trying to convince my Mother who is 87 and 4 foot 11 ( and shrinking) that she could go as an old lady...(the photo is of my Mum going to school for the first time at about age 3, and her beautiful greyhound)

I am thinking of doing the same. At 5 foot 1, I too have been awarded the prize of trick or treating for life!
(I do feel a little sorry for those really really tall 11 year olds that get questioned)

The strangest trick or treaters was a family with a new born (like days old), Mother, Father and Grandmother. All not dressed up. The grandmother held the baby and presented it to me when I opened the door.

The oddest thing I ever got trick or treating was a grapefruit, a guy didn't realize it was halloween and rumaged around his fridge for a while and plopped a grapefruit in my halloween bag.

Happy Haunting.

Trick or Treat.

Happy Happy Candy Eating.

And a Merry Halloween.

Earnest Muffins

ALGERNON: Well, I can't eat muffins in an agitated manner. The butter would probably get on my cuffs. One should always eat muffins quite calmly. It is the only way to eat them.

...yahh like the colour of the ocean

in the eaves,

and dropped words
and phases

waiting to visit you

roll them over with the side of your shoe

a pile of freshly fallen words

today in the pile
the sun up and out
and down and under
rain and clear

in a matter of minutes

i found the word carried on the wind


and a mum says to her son

'yahh like the colour of the ocean"

mumbo jumbo collared greens

...the great thing about knitting is you can unknit,
a do-over is totally possible

learning curve in the curve of the neck,
trying to do a jig when all that is required is the box step...

cryptic, unclear pattern, not seeing the pattern,
learnt a few things along the way...

i like that.
