Premiere and Expiere

WHAT?! That’s not how you spell “Expire”!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI can’t help it, I’m a poet, not a speller.

Regarding the contest: the race to get to 150 “Likes” on Facebook. Hmm…this is going to be trickier than I thought. Yessirree, I may have to rethink this. We’re up to 86 from 81, so there’s THAT – but it may take awhile to get to 150…I might need to lower my goal or sweeten the deal…but, hmm….you can’t get much sweeter than Chase’s Cherry Mash…









Ooh, look! The expiration date! OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Looks like I have some time to ponder this thing further. Not near as long as I thought. Iowans must go through this stuff like gangbusters…bless ’em…(bless me too, for I am an Iowan now).

Tonight! The Premiere of Chapter 10 Present Past at midnight.

In the meantime, off I go to see if I can perhaps fluff the candies in the tea cup a little. Plus, I bought my Halloween candy for Trick-or-treaters yesterday. So much temptation…must resist…and I WILL!
