"Imagine all the people living life in peace. You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one.
I hope someday you'll join us, and the world will be as one. "

My friend's husband

There is now a rod across the wall in the little enclosed back porch. My winter coats are now hanging on the rod. Have to find ways to use space wisely in a small place. This is the kind of thing I like to do.

My friend's husband brought over the large dowel, his saw and installed the rod. Took him about twenty minutes.

Home Improvements

In another week, some of the work will begin here at the little white house. A crew will be here to remove the layers of sand and pebbles that have been filling the driveway for the past several years.

Then it will be a two day job to do the concrete driveway. This is what I wanted done when I lived here before. The concrete driveway will make it easier to get through the winter.

Then a crew will be here to install rain gutters on the house and the detached garage.

Then the work will begin on the inside of the house. New light fixture in the bathroom, some new electrical plugs, two new door frames and baseboards.

This is the fun part.

Halloween Soon

A man is walking home alone

late one foggy night...

When behind him 

he hears:




Walking faster, he looks back, 

and through the fog

he makes out the image

of an upright casket

banging its way 

down the street

toward him.




Terrified, the man begins to run

toward his home, 

the casket bouncing quickly

behind him. 






He runs up to his door,

fumbles with his keys, 

rushes in,

slams and locks the door behind him.

However, the casket crashes through his door

with the lid of the casket clapping




On his heels,

the terrified man runs.

Rushing upstairs to the bathroom,

the man locks himself in.

His heart is pounding; 

his head is reeling;

His breath is coming in sobbing gasps.

With a loud CRASH, 


Bumping and clapping toward him.

The man screams and reaches for something,


but all he can find is a bottle of cough syrup.

Desperate, he throws the bottle of cough syrup at the casket.


the coffin stops.

(Get it?) (Are you laughing yet?)

Five Year Anniversary

This Halloween is five year anniversary living in this town. Time goes by and then I check dates and am surprised at how long I have been here. The experience of arriving in this town and being so tired that moving day is still a clear memory. I even remember the headache at end of day and going to local restaurant to eat. That restaurant has changed owners twice since then.

For me, Halloween is firstly my anniversary of time spent here in this little town, and then the Halloween Hoopla.

Happy Anniversary to me, happy anniversary to me, happy anniversary to me, happy anniversary to me.

Big Smile.
