Join Here I've decided to try out the Tuesday meme that Skittles has set up for us. The rules are found here . It 'sounds' interesting and quite fun also. I like the idea of the heads I win , tails I win kinda concept. [insert wink] I'm a gambler by blood. LOL So, this will be fun I think. It's a 'win-win' idea!! This week Skittles has chosen HEADS. So we get a choice of things to write about on our blog. The category is "Spooky, Scary, or Halloweenish"! And if I understand correctly, I can write ANYthing on that certain subject. <><><> NEW HOME -- AND -- A CAT .... what follows is a true happening I t happened one night. Late. It was our first night in our new home after relocating in Texas by the Gulf. My story begins on the road trip down here to be living by the ocean...a dream of mine finally coming to reality. But the reality of a happy dream would soon turn frightening. We'd had a previous long, harrowing

I got a treat!! I got a treat!!! Candy coated!! It's sweet, and scrumptious. And it's from Carolyn She says on her blog: " Anni at Hootin'Anni's - I love reading what Anni is up to and who knows what that is going to be!! That's why I go over every day just to find out what on earth she has been doing in the last 24 hours! You never know! A very fun and sometimes serious read. " You know what this means, don't you? It means I gotta hand out some now -----[below] <><><> A lllllllll righty then! We're talkin' security blankets this week for Fun Monday! That can't be all that difficult to come up with something. Something that I just can't leave home without! *sucking my thumb like Linus of the Charlie Brown saga with his 'bankey'* And obviously keys and the garage door opener is with me....but, that's not really 'security' ---I can always break in to get back in the house so..... First off

Joining the crew today on the Cyber Cruise...with Captain Lifecruiser ....we're celebrating Halloween in style! Today we're sharing legends, spirits and haunts. Here's my tale: I begin with a story of our LOCAL SAGA that's going around this city ---it's usually told frequently around this time of year through the media as Urban Legends' true nature. It's about a ghost. A FRIENDLY and knowledgeable ghost!!! There is a timely narrative 'floating' around our city, with much more intensity during the Halloween; tho it's a well known fact year long. It's been a known paranormal happening for decades. Today, the ship, USS Lexington is a world war two museum, permanently docked in Corpus Christi Bay. There is a ghost that has taken up residence aboard this ship. It's legendary. I've been on the ship twice now, and once before I knew it was supposedly haunted. Now, if you ask me, an old ship like this is ONE place that I could re

ADDENDUM FOR TODAY! [my photo hunt 'pink' is directly below] I just received this cute, cute Halloween gift from Antoinette because I gave her a treat!! Thanks so much, it's adorable!!! About | Theme: PINK | Roll Next week " CLASSIC " <><><> O f course being October, and Breast Cancer Month, I'm thinking this is why the category pink came up. I don't have that much pink myself other than a t-shirt and a pink Houston Astros' baseball cap that I purchased; and the Houston Astros then donated the proceeds to the National Breast Cancer Foundation for breast cancer awareness. And this time of year, other than the pink ribbons, you don't see too much of this color; being that it's Autumn in our part of the world. [At least for me, that is.] Then..... The UDDER pink I chose--- Okay, so I ended up going through accessories found around the house, and such...I found a pair of earrings, of which I show to you now. These cute li

[this turned into a very long post.] ...join us over at Kelli's "There is no place like home"! ! - - - - I f you stop by my blog a lot, you know I love this upcoming holiday. Sometimes, I think, too much. But, all in all, my collecting of ghoulish, witchy items, has grown for nearly 40 years. So, come to think of it, I'm not that much fanatic about it. rofl!!!! *Ya, right!* But, each October it's like a whole new holiday for me ---I get to unwrap all the items from the storage boxes and bring out my 'old favorites' again!! Anyway, through the years I've collected witches. I love the wrinkled, old hag look! *laughing* Yes, I do. Why, I dunno. But, I do. Yet, it's not just that part of witches...I also get a big kick out of the whimsical side of the witches seen on store shelves. The cuteness can be a lot of fun too. I even have a 'bobble-head' witch! Since this is the last Friday of the month to show n tell my Halloween fixt

- - - " I worry about scientists discovering that lettuce has been fattening all along...." Appetizer Name a great website you would recommend to others. GOOGLE is just about the only one I use often enough to recommend. So, nothing much here on the Appetizer this week folks. Soup On a scale of 1-10 (with 10 as highest), how often do you dream at night? I can't really say here. 90% of dreams are not remembered upon waking ---so, can't tell you. Now the one's I remember, well, they're the ones that you don't want to even count! One maybe? Who knows. *shrug* Salad Did you have a pet as a child? If so, what kind and what was its name? A red persian cat. Named George. Main Course If you had the chance to star in a commercial, what would you choose to advertise? Probably some beer commercial. They're always so funny and enjoyable. Or a certain insurance company too ---I'd like to meet that duck that can talk! Wouldn't you? "AFLAC&

" By the way, THURSDAY THIRTEEN has been nominated as one of the best online communities for the 2007 Weblog Awards ." T hirteen 'little' things that annoy me [more or less this list will turn into pet peeves, I'm sure. These days there are more and more times that I see lack of common courtesies and disrespect in one way or another]. 1] Seeing trash in the city parks and streets! Why on earth can't these people that leave their trash in the parks and along jogging/walking paths put the refuse in trash receptacles? It's beyond me. And I'm a smoker, I see cigarette butts all around town, in parks, by buildings, on street curbs ---there are bins for your butts people! Use them!!! [I've even been known to call city offices and complain that the dump trucks should be 'closed in' to keep the collected trash from flying out!] 2] Pushy drivers! I really get upset when someone is going over the allotted speed in the city --and comes up at
