To celebrate, a picture I just took of Newt.

Off and running this morning.. I'm going to try to get everything done before two. See you this afternoon, dear journal. Have a scary, but safe Holiday! Off to give bankers candy corn!

Keep an eye on Newtie while I'm gone, dear journal.
scotto monkeypulse

is the plural of footage feetage?

Back from the bank, and many tellers got candy corn.... saw my brother doing deliveries this morning, and he hooked me up with a few yummy cookies and sody-pop. Morning Sugar-Rush!

The gift shop had their cow dudded out as a witch. I was surprised that the proprietor himself wasn't dressed up. He seems like a nice guy. The stuff inside is nifty, too.
Trick or treat.. it's moo-moo bingo the cow dressed as a witch.

I made it back at just about noon... I'm wondering when or if the little knock-knocks will begin tonight.

I also saw a Vactor Hydroevacuator on the site, but it rounded a corner before I could photograph it. A very nifty truck...it looks like some sort of wacky mad max vehicle. Lots of pipes and compressors...probably quite capable to burst through concrete walls with A-team-like acumen and gusto.

I wonder how my sweet little Victorian undead beloved is doing today? I imagine that I'll catch her here or there sometime soon.

safety tips and tricks for Halloween:

  1. When it appears that you have killed the monster, NEVER check to see if it's really dead.

  2. Never read a book of demon summoning aloud, even as a joke.

  3. Do not search the basement, especially if the power has gone out.

  4. If your children speak to you in Latin or any other language which they should not know, you should be very concerned. This also applies to kids who speak with somebody else's voice.

  5. When you have the benefit of numbers, NEVER pair off and go alone.

  6. As a general rule, don't solve puzzles that open portals to Hell.

  7. Never stand in, on, or above a grave, tomb, or crypt. This would apply to any other house of the dead as well.

  8. If you're searching for something which caused a loud noise and find out that it's just the cat, GET THE HECK OUT!

  9. If appliances start operating by themselves, do not check for short circuits; just get out.

  10. Do not take ANYTHING from the dead.

  11. If you find a town which looks deserted, there's probably a good reason for it. Don't stop and look around.

  12. Don't fool with recombinant DNA technology unless you're sure you know what you're doing.

  13. If you're running from the monster, expect to trip or fall down at east twice, more if you are female. Also note that, despite the fact that you are running and the monster is merely shambling along, it's still moving fast enough to catch up with you.

  14. If your companions suddenly begin to exhibit uncharacteristic behavior such as hissing, fascination for blood, glowing eyes, increasing hairiness, and so on, run for your life!

  15. Stay away from certain geographical locations, some of which are listed here: Amityville, Elm Street, Transylvania, Nilbog, anywhere in Texas where chainsaws are sold, the Bermuda Triangle, or any small town in Maine.

  16. If your car runs out of gas at night on a lonely road, do not go to he nearby deserted-looking house to phone for help. If you think that it is strange you ran out of gas because you thought you had most of a tank, shoot yourself instead. You are going to die anyway, and most likely be eaten.

  17. Beware of strangers bearing tools. For example: chainsaws, staple guns, hedge trimmers, electric carving knives, combines, lawnmowers, butane torches, soldering irons, band saws, or any devices made from deceased companions.

  18. If you find that your house is built upon a cemetery, now is the time to move in with the in-laws. This also applies to houses that had previous inhabitants who went mad or committed suicide or died in some horrible fashion, or had inhabitants who performed satanic practices.

  19. Dress appropriately. When investigating a noise downstairs in an old house, women should not wear a flimsy negligee. And carry a flashlight, not a candle.

  20. Do not mention the names of demons around open flames, as these can flare suddenly. Be especially careful of fireplaces in this regard.

  21. Do not go looking for witches in the Maryland countryside.
