MontyfgalAnd now, we VAMP whilst we wait for those of you who are reading to read Chapter 13, The Question & the Quest, featuring the always lovely and very funny Fanny Brice in the “gallery” photo up top.

Ah, Monty! You may recall the creature I designed for this year. Here’s my sketch:OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Despite his faults – which are my faults, ’cause I’m the one who made him – since he was so close, I decided to do a few final things and show the Full MONTY, as I call him. HAH! Hope you’re not disappointed!

Here he is!


I didn’t have enough of the black duct tape for his hat, so I did stripes instead…

One thing about doing things in the wee hours of the morning, which is when I wake up, is that it’s sometimes hard to get good pictures…

I don’t want you to think I walk around all the time wearing black clothes, my scarf, and my hat…


Up close:

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERADesign flaws: Too top heavy! No way could I get him to stand, not in the gentle Iowa fall breeze!

Plus, there’s duct tape, and there’s duct tape. I bought the cheap stuff, and it just doesn’t stick as good (as well? Pesky English!).

If I were going to use him, I would have added dangling legs to the little fella in his hand, as well as arms and a top hat.

Ah, well! There’s always next year!


LAST BUT NOT LEAST, it’s my BEAUTIFUL Mother’s Birthday today! She is an AMAZING woman, even if she IS a little crazy…

A JaneAs you can see, this nut right here, typing away, didn’t fall too far from the tree. She’s swinging from a vine. A vine, fer cryin’ out loud…LOVE YOU, my gorgeous and wonderfully wonderful MOM!!! Happy 39th!!!

Tomorrow…ABOUT Chapter 13, and it will be Halloween! POET.

Happy Halloween Eve, all!
