Is It The Full Moon?

Dr. Kimberly Quinlan Lindsey, 44

Click on the link to read her story.  It’s not pretty.  She’s one of the big whigs in the CDC, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention; in charge of $1.5 billion fiscal allotment for Terrorism Preparedness.  Is that what made her do these things?  Or is it the full moon?

Two Amish Men

Here’s another unsettling tidbit of information for you.  The Amish?  The ones who wear their differences from the outside world on their shirts with no buttons?  Are they not so different after all?  Or is it the full moon?

Hana Grace

The book that was used to kill13-year-old Hana Grace was written by an Amish preacher.  It tells how to beat your children starting at age one.  Some of you may have heard of it: To Train Up a Child.  It was also the torture inspiration for little Lydia and Sean.  Do these people use God as their reason to torture and kill young children?  Or is it the full moon?

Lucky Little Mattie

Ah, and then there’s little Mattie whom I follow on his parents’ web site From the Heart.  I can tell you it is not the full moon that has directed their path.  It is the Son.


October 11 – Full Moon

A full moon… an eerie cemetery… and an awesome fog machine.  Oh, yeah.  That’s what I’m talkin’ about.  It will also go well with my pumpkin head man.  He has little battery lights for his eyes that look so cool when it’s dark.  He’s a little skinny because, well, he’s actually dead, so I didn’t think he should be fat.  Nate and I had a great time this afternoon getting him all ready to go.  If you look really closely, you can see the electrical tape holding his hat together.  But from the road it looks just fine.

I took a little time today and planted a few things in an old wheelbarrow that I have.  It turned out sort of nice.

And… I’ve already got trickers or treaters at my door!

This Halloween has been a fun one.  Kate decorated the two pumpkins I brought home with some plastic face pieces.  One is of her and the other is of Logan, her future husband according to Kate.  I don’t think Logan knows this yet.  The night of tricking or treating I will be a vampire.  I can hardly wait.  Even now I vaant to suuuck your blooood!

So unteel vee meet again, enjoy zee full moon!

The Potential Nudists

Sorry, folks, no pics on this post.  I have plenty of them, but they are X-rated.  My grandgirls are practicing for their future in the nudist colony.

It began with Kate.  She abhors clothes of any kind and sheds them the minute she opens the door to come inside.  And truth be told, if you look at my house or her house on any given summer day, you will probably see a full moon on that bright sunny day making it’s way around the yard.  She has no inhibitions whatsoever and thinks nothing of running all over the place “nekkid.”

So now Ava is following in her footsteps.  The minute they both set foot inside my kitchen door they begin stripping and are bare before they walk into the living room.  Amazing!  I am trying to teach them that nobody wants to see their buhiney, but Kate says that, in fact, they do.  A statement made purely out of the desire to remain unclothed.

I have to admit… I would do the same thing if it didn’t make me wonder who that old saggy, baggy woman was every time I pass the mirror.
