(Thank you, VAGirl)
Dear friends, I have good news, and I have good news. Which one do you want first? Can't make up your mind? I'll do it for you.
Moanday Mail Day didn't happen. I couldn't do it. Still cannot fully use my arm without making a mess after the whiplash incident. I have been reduced to printing, as some of you will see soon enough, and let me tell you now, it is not pretty. However, extra goodies have been added to the pumpkin. See? Good things do come to those who wait.
Oh, things were looking good. There is Halloween fun stuff; things that glow and wiggle and jiggle and tickle; things for writing and measuring and treasuring . . . Still, there was something missing. Scratching my head, biting my nails, wondering, "Oh, what the hell-o?" I got it!
There was nothing good to eat! There were tricks, but no treats! Remedy that! I did.
Reeses cups and a cup to gulp
your favorite brew!
Jelly beans that are a scream!
Gummy Ranchers that will make you prance for . . .
Mmm, oh yum! I bought M&Ms!
Say hey to the wolf man.
Aren't you glad that you ain't him?
(Limner retains exclusive creative wrong for this here bad grammar.)
Now for the good news:
A day's delay means more entries made it under the wire. I won't include names here, but you know who you are. The more the merrier. So, mail goes out on Wednesday.
Again, VaGirl, this sent me over the moon. Had I known, I'd have bought My First Monster. Boris and Bela gave me my first nightmares. Thank you, for another memorable postcard.
Dear Anna, thank you! A replacement card. Too thoughtful and generous. This is as lovely as the first. I'd wear that necklace so fast; never mind a damaged neck. I'd feel like Wilma Flintstone or Mrs. Gotrocks. That's just beautiful. NZ sure has lovely stones. Hope you can answer my query about . . . You'll see. :)
I like to think I'm a generous person, but I draw the line when it comes to being generous with ignorance. As in "Every time she opens her mouth she gives away her ignorance." Tee-hee-hee. First time I saw this I thought, "Whoa, didn't know Ohio had islands." Seriously. Would I lie? Then the voice of Common Sense whispered, "Girl, you know Ohio does NOT . . ." And I let Common Sense hold sway. Thanks, Cole. Hope your trip is all you need it to be and more.
Ta-da! Henderica, see? It made its way, safe and sound. The cute little mouse reminds me of a rhyme of mine, when I ask God why I cannot fly. That's a smart mouse. Instead of waiting to grow wings, like me, it got busy. LOL. I like it. Beer is witch's brew. That bat reminds me of a guy I dated once. Pumpkins are all related to Charlie Brown's Great Pumpkin. Did you know that? Thank you!
There's more for later.
For Misty. In honor of your soldier who made it home, and for my nephew, the Marine, who will be stateside tomorrow.
To phonelady61, thanks to Patty. Patty, I like these more than you know. You're a gem among gems.
Um . . . Still not seeing.
To Ms Ashley Rose, as a substitute for House. Reckon he'll do?
Humming . . .
It's a postcard. And, what else?

I am guilty of not paying attention to proper grammar. As much as I read, one would think I'd do better, huh? Are you just as guilty, dear friends?
