The goblins'll get you...
...if'n you don't watch out! Anyone else remember James Whitcomb Riley? Nothing feels more Halloweenlike than having someone read "Little Orphant Annie" aloud to you. Of course, it probably helps if you're in the fourth grade like I was the first time I heard it, but it's never too late.
Even though I'm not that big on Halloween, the boyfriend and I always buy a couple of bags of candy and turn on the porchlights on Halloween. Then, when no one comes except the three grandkids who live fairly close, we proceed to turn off the lights and eat the candy.
Have a howling good time!

A little of this, a little of that...If you're not doing anything this Saturday, the 13th, from 1-3, I'll be signing copies of THE DEBUTANTE'S SECOND CHANCE at Waldenbooks in the Logansport Mall. If you don't want the book, store manager will have cookies on hand, as well as lots of other books...
Speaking of books, I just finished the last of J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter series. Wow. I have no clue how many hours I spent reading the seven books, but not one little bitty minute of it was wasted. Ms. Rowling is--as Henry James notably said Louisa May Alcott was not--a genius. I thank her for the pleasure.
Just a reminder--October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. Don't forget--let me repeat that--DON'T FORGET to get your mammogram. If you can't afford it, call your doctor's office and tell them you can't. They'll help. Or go to www.thebreastcancersite.com/ They'll help, too. Do it.
It's church summer time in these parts. Even if you don't attend services, be sure to attend church suppers. The proceeds go to help those in need, and the food its outstanding!
Till next time...
