...repeating itself

Can't we all just get along? Not always it seems. On this day in 1838, Missouri governor Lilburn Boggs issued the Extermination Order, by which orders all Mormons had to leave the state or be exterminated. Donny and Marie were working on their first album together as Donny's solo records were slipping in sales. It must have been a tough time for them. Try to embrace everyone for their differences, not similarities. Unless they are being buttheads, then do what is necessary.

...moonshine anyone?

It is sunny, crisp and clear here in Chester County, PA this morning. It is a perfect setting for the filming of a scary movie. On this day in 1952 strange occurrences, including a monster sighting, took place in Flatwoods, West Virginia.The Flatwoods Monster, also known as the Braxton County Monster or the Phantom of Flatwoods, is an alleged unidentified extraterrestrial or cryptid reported to be sighted in the town of Flatwoods in Braxton County, West Virginia. Stories of the creature are an example of a purported close encounter of the third kind. Most agree that it was at least 10 feet tall and that it had a red face which appeared to glow from within, and a green body.Yesterday's Custom Drapery Installation went without a hitch and then the customer took me out to lunch. Including a Bloody Mary. Nothing scary about that!

Sunday, October 23, 2011 I blue?

No. I am feeling pretty good. But on this day in 1958, The Smurfs appeared for the first time in the story La flute à six schtroumpfs. Speaking of blue, I am installing Blue and Cream Buffalo Checked Balloon Valances today. After that I will stop by EA's home, shhhhhhh, because it is her Birthday! She will be turning 21 again so alcohol will most definitely be involved in the evening. My Schipperke is on my lap, valiantly trying to add to this blog. If any unsavory words appear, blame it on him please.
