Look: I am eager to learn stuff I don't know--which requires actively courting and posting smart disagreement.

But as you will understand, I don't like to post things that mischaracterize and are aimed to mislead.

Shadow Shot Sunday - 10/31 - Halloween!

The lovely wife and 8-year-old granddaughter Samantha drove by this rather overdone Halloween display the other day.  Click to enlarge, and survey the cast of gruesome characters surrounding the doorway.  Sam's comment was, "If I was a kid, I wouldn't want to go trick or treating there.  Oh, wait . . . I AM a kid!"


But wait -- there's more!

Here is the other side of the driveway.

Wow, someone spent an amazing amount of time on that display! They must really love Halloween. Great shots - perfect for SSS and the holiday, too!

Happy SSSunday!

Warm welcome to the graveyard
A hole waits to be filled;
We’ll dump you in it, dearie,
Once you have been killed.

We’ll slit your throat with razors
And pluck your eyeballs out;
We’ll stuff your ears with gizzards—
Lizards for your snout.

So welcome to the graveyard,
For your infernal rest;
We know just how to tease you—
That’s what we do best.

Oh, no man. That is staying here forever!

I'll avoid your graveyard
And eschew the gaping hole.
So when you're counting victims,
I'll not add to your toll.

My throat and neck are healthy,
They hold my head up right.
I think I'll keep my ears and snout
Attached for one more night.

Yes, I'll avoid your graveyard
With it's monsters, ghosts and squid,
When I go for tricks and treats tonight,
Cuz, you see, I AM a kid!
