SUNDAY'S SUMMARY This year, for some reason [maybe it's because I have so many now the way it is], I did not find any new and worthy of bringing home witches for my collection. The cloth one Bud found for me, and the little ceramic one is from my sister in Colorado. That's it for this season. And that's quite all right by me. As much as I love 'em and how fun they are sitting out and making the home all creepy and crawly with creatures and sound...they all have to be packed away each and every year. Right? So the less I buy/receive, the less of a job I have come November 1st. Tomorrow I plan on tearing everything down and begin cleaning and dusting and then I'll begin putting the small amount of Thanksgiving knick-knacks out that I have. Once that is over, then, it's Christmas Santas that'll keep me occupied for a week or two. As much as I love the holidays, and as much as I love decorating, I WILL be glad when it's over this year

weekend funnies is co-hosted by Gattina - - - MY SIX WORDS this week are: HAVE A SAFE, HAPPY HALLOWEEN WEEKEND!!! - - -<><><>- - - CAMERA CRITTERS A critter from OUTER SPACE - - -<><><>- - - WEEKEND FUNNIES This is a long story...Erik forwarded this to me through an email, and it was too funny not to share today--- I called my friend Andy Sable, a gastroenterologist, to make an appointment for a colonoscopy. A few days later, in his office, Andy showed me a color diagram of the colon, a lengthy organ that appears to go all over the place, at one point passing briefly through Minneapolis. Then Andy explained the colonoscopy procedure to me in a thorough, reassuring and patient manner. I nodded thoughtfully, but I didn't really hear anything he said, because my brain was shrieking, 'HE'S GOING TO STICK A TUBE 17,000 FEET UP YOUR BEHIND!' I left Andy's office with some written instructions,

CLICK EITHER BUTTON to join Flash Fiction 55 below my.... SHOW N TELL This past week, out of boredom, I began a new sketch on my watercolor tablet in hopes of painting her soon. Well, I started painting on it nearly as quickly as I finished the sketch. Of course, I won't have it completed for this Halloween 'cause it came to a stop because of the cold I caught, and there is a lot to be done and then detailing afterward, but it'll get done and then I have a whole year to get it matted and framed for NEXT season....... day one day two day three - - -<><><>- - - FLASH FICTION 55 [a bit too human perhaps?] T'other night, dining out; we ordered our dinners Smothered in chili verdé Bean burritos were brought to our table...

Click either button to Join THE LYDIA ANN Port Aransas, Texas As I mentioned a few weeks ago, while out and about along the Texas Coast, we stopped along the Port of Aransas because I had read that you can get a good view of the lighthouse from the ships' channel. The lighthouse is no longer used for navigational purposes, and it's now privately owned. The only way of seeing it would be from the banks of the channel in one certain spot, or charter a tour boat that will take you along the shores of a smaller water passage way to the property. We purposely made a special stop here for the second time in two weeks because the first time I did not have the more powerful lensed camera where I could zoom in on it better. From where you stand on the banks...it's a long distance away....you need a powerful zoom lens to get a good photo. If you take the charter boat, you can only photograph it from the tour boat as it is not open to the public...the l

Metz said most forecast models indicate that the storm will be hit with a strong southwesterly wind shear once it moves into the Gulf of Mexico, which should keep the storm from reorganizing. The chance of rain in South Texas Thursday or Friday will depend on a cold front that is expected to arrive i
