The ghost and the Pumpkin.

    So ends another hum-drum weeKEnD. Not much in the way of Halloween happenings went on. Oh well, there will be other sunny days to work with.
   There were some unearthly sounds coming from the back of the house late last night. Moans and groans followed by a few screams. You see, I have been haunted for the last week. Nothing supernatural unfortunately. I had a bout with a kidney stone in the early AM and I came out the winner. Even if I feel like I lost. It did manage to sap all of my creativity and drive. From now on, the only stones I want to deal with are the kind with an epitaph engraved on them.
   The title of this blog may be a bit misleading, but true to my word I did have an encounter with a ghost and a Pumpkin this afternoon. First an actual picture of a ghost!
   A ghost caterpillar that is. Little bugger is eating my Lilac bush! I bet a sting from him would make me forget all about that stone business.

   And now to the Pumpkin. I regret to inform you that there are no pumpkins growing in the wicKED garden this year, but I did get a visit from our neighbors's cat Pumpkin.
   He's a little raggedy but a fine feline. He always comes over and grabs a snack then heads to the big chair on the front porch to catch 20 winks. When the Halloween decorations are out in full force, he always curls up in the lap of our sitting scarecrow. Too bad Pumpkin is't a black cat, but I won't hold that against him.
   New week is about to start. Hopefully I can get back in the wicKED groove. Time will tell.
