But Please of course I hope you had and or are having a Happy Halloween!!!

I'm pleased to announce that Sue Barton of has won the my disgruntled goblin!!! Congratulations Sue! He'll be shipped out to you on Tuesday!

I think this is a very important video I found on Andrew Sullivan's blog....
"When Did You Choose to be Straight?"

I find it interesting how people change their minds or open up to another idea when asked this question.

Can't believe it's Nov. 1 tomorrow ~ Happy November!

Travel Changes & Halloween and... October Giveaway!

First let me tell you that I changed my travel plans. Today I was supposed to be flying to the Netherlands. I was all packed! Ready to GO! Then the terrorist alerts started pouring in. Germany (I was thinking of going there) France (there too), Japan and then finally Amsterdam! Their airport and train stations and business's around the stations... I thought very hard and made the decision not to go at this time. I'm looking forward to traveling there in April 2011... To celebrate with my dear friend Essie's Birthday~ and to see Donna and several other wonderful artists! SO I was heavy of heart for a day or so now I know that April is just around the corner!

So I started to bring up my Halloween things from the basement...
Here's a few photo's of my motley crew...
 Count Dracula
 A Witch Green with Envy
"Are you looking at me?"
Is that you dad???
 Mean ole Witch
 Beware of the Black Widow
 Some funny characters hanging around
The beginnings of my mantle.

And last but not least... My October giveaway will be this disgruntled goblin. Please leave a comment on this post and a way to get in touch with you. I'll draw a name on October 30th!
And once again thank you all for following me and commenting

Halloween is Around the Corner... 29 days...

I've grown a few pumpkins this year... not much else grew as we have had a very wet summer. I'll give these pumpkins to my neighbors as I'll be in Amsterdam on Oct. 31st!
I love when my chickens are looking at me saying "What are you looking at?"
I'm not so sure that the one in the middle isn't a rooster~sorry neighbors this one stays if she is... I love her/him... time will tell. I'm so thankful I have such a great chicken/cat sitter that will be living here.

Spiders are out.... eekkkkkk.... does anyone know what kind of spider this is? We have so many of these I hope thy are not poisonous!

This time next week I'll be in the town Essie lives in!

I'm staying at this hotel for the first 3 days.... NH Marquette
