I've got to come clean about the Snickers! (Sue remembers I bought some and have been trying NOT to eat them all so I have enough to give to the kids in our condo complex..we never did get many kids at the front door over the years, so I don't buy much)...
Today, I was eating lunch with Ms Z in the living room and suddenly there was a knock on the front door. I thought "At 1:30, there are trick or treaters?" I peeped out the hole in the door and there were two kids and two adults but I couldn't tell WHO. I told Ms Z to lay low and ssshhh!...and I quietly slid the glass doors shut........and then we continued eating and hunkered down so the folks outside won't knock again! (Well, I'd eaten quite a few Snickers and didn't have too many left and had to save some for the kids I know are coming!!)
FInally, about 8 min later, the doorbell rings and I get up again and see the parents but no kids out the peep hole and figured I'd just open the door and tell the truth "I DON"T HAVE MUCH CANDY!"

It was a friend's daughter! My friend lives in the bldg and had brought her 2 kids and boyfriend from Maine (where they just moved) to have lunch with her folks!
We had a wonderful visit but the moral of the story is : Just because it's Halloween doesn't mean everyone who comes to the door wants CANDY! :-)

First of all, when a tea party costume show's up you know you've made it!

But, I love that little turtle. So precious. Very clever.

Apropos fr Halloween:

“As for the Republicans—how can one regard seriously a frightened, greedy, nostalgic huddle of tradesmen and lucky idlers who shut their eyes to history and science, steel their emotions against decent human sympathy, cling to sordid and provincial ideals exalting sheer acquisitiveness and condoning artificial hardship for the non-materially-shrewd, dwell smugly and sentimentally in a distorted dream-cosmos of outmoded phrases and principles and attitudes based on the bygone agricultural-handicraft world, and revel in (consciously or unconsciously) mendacious assumptions (such as the notion that real liberty is synonymous with the single detail of unrestricted economic license or that a rational planning of resource-distribution would contravene some vague and mystical ‘American heritage’…) utterly contrary to fact and without the slightest foundation in human experience? Intellectually, the Republican idea deserves the tolerance and respect one gives to the dead.”

--- H. P. Lovecraft

Heather, glad you liked my story!

Ducky, that silliness is more April FOOLS than this holiday, isn't it :-)

I always love hearing about Republicans not being good to the needy, we're racist, etc ....No, we just expect more for them and from them; we're SICK to death (and they should be too but greed from expecting your ridiculous entitlement-giving gets in the way) of your type treating Mexicans like jerks who can't get anywhere and not teaching them English, etc...(in the guise of being "NICE")...or thinking Blacks are stupid because they don't think LEFTWING.
Honestly, Ducky, you should hear yourself!

As for Lovecraft, he proved his talents again; he can REALLY write fiction.

Good evening to you too, Johnny Raincloud.

Z,

The run-on sentence was a nice touch, though...don't you think? ;)

Lovecraft, a proud son of New England.

The quote surprised me, evidently his early conservatism gave way to full support for FDR.

The quote is from 1937.

My film group was talking up the horror genre for the season and wondered why Lovecraft's stuff has never really made a good film. Not uncommon for good descriptive writers.

He was one VERY weird guy....and obviously a little unhinged.

The baby turtle was precious.

The prolix quote by HP Lovecraft ... not so much. I prefer his horror stories. Cthulhu is coming for you Ducky!!!!!!
