Witchy Fun


This is a poem I wrote for October Poetry Writing Month, way back in 2014.

There are a lot of TV and movie witches that have brought us fun entertainment over the years.

Being it’s getting close to Halloween again, I thought I’d re-post it. Enjoy! 🙂



From Oz to Salem, to suburban mayhem,

The witches entertained us all.

The witch of the west, was creepy at best,

And Glinda was belle of the ball.

Samantha twitched her nose,

Whenever she chose, and

Sabrina’s cat talks to her, it is true.

Elphaba was wicked,

Endora was vivid…

They all were an interesting crew.

The Sanderson sisters were funny and camp,

The witches of Eastwick were duped…

They all used their craft, and a bit of their vamp,

But Morticia’s my all favorite champ.


Shows referenced = Bewitched, The Wizard of Oz, The Addams Family, Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Hocus Pocus, The Witches of Eastwick, and Wicked (broadway play)

Just Creepy – Q & A


Just Creepy – Q & A  halloween-witch-3702171_960_720

Game on – series 2 – Just Creepy


Here are some fun and spooky questions I found over at ‘A Guy Called Bloke & K9 Doodlepip.


Q1] Favourite all time creepy monster or villian?

The Fiend, which was a brain that attacked people. It was an old B & W movie around 1958, and gave me nightmares for a long time. I’ve never forgotten it.

Q2] Pumpkin Pie or what is your favourite pie at Halloween?

I like pumpkin pie, but we don’t usually fix a pie for Halloween.

Q3] What is something you most assuredly wouldn’t want to bump into in a darkened alleyway?

A dirty, infested dumpster.

Q4] Have you ever dabbled with the dark side .. l don’t mean Bloody Mary either l mean Ouija?

Yes, both, and more.

PQ5] What’s your most favourite Halloween movie that you just have to watch over, and over and over again every Halloween? [Link Please]

Hocus Pocus.


Q6] Are you superstitious? [How so?]

Not really, but I will knock on wood sometimes.

PQ7] If you found yourself trapped in a horror movie which one would it be?

Hocus Pocus, because it’s a little scary and a lot of fun.

Q8] On the subject whilst we are here, have you ever played Bloody Mary?

Yes, and scared half the kids in the neighborhood, who ran screaming out of the house.

Q9] Oh golly jeepers, you have awoken in the night to hear footsteps in the house .. who you gonna call?

No one. I’d get up and investigate.

Q10] So it’s dark and creepy, and you have just been dared to visit the local Cemetary would you do it?

Yes, in a second! Our local cemetery is known to be haunted, but I’ve never had a chance to go out there at night.

Q11] After watching a scary flick, can you just go to bed, or do you have to do something cheery first?

I’d just go to bed. Movies are just pretend.

PQ12] It’s Halloween, you are music master at the party, what are your first five songs going to be played to kick start the night?

Abracadabra – Steve Miller Band

Ghost Busters – Ray Parker, Jr.

Symphony for the Devil – Rolling Stones

Thriller – Michael Jackson

Purple People Eater – Sheb Wooley


Q13]  Favourite all time scary creepy spooky book?

The Demonologists, by Ed & Lorraine Warren. I had to get it out of the house, and couldn’t finish reading it. Actually, I did later on finish reading it, but still scared me.

Q14] You have been invited to the ultimate Monster Mash party and it’s fancy costume – who are you going as?

A witch. I almost always dressed in costume as a witch when I was a kid, and even later on.

PQ15] Are you doing anything for Halloween this year? If so what?

Handing out candy for the kids who come by trick-or-treating. I’ll put out a few decorations like my ghost tree.

Q16] You are a juinor witch going onto ‘sleepaway camp’, you have to take a familiar with you and your choices are:

Black Cat ***






What are you going to pick and why?

Black cat. Cats are cool, and we have a couple of black cats already.

Q17] You have been chosen to make the tea cakes for the party and they have to look spooky what are you going to make?

Round tea cake cookies with icing to look like spider webs.

Q18] How old were you when you saw your first horror movie – what was it – provide link?

The Fiend on TV (see above) when I was 7 or 8. At the movies the first one I saw was called, “Gorgo”, who was a dinosaur, or sea monster.

Q19] Are you easily scared?


PQ20] Are you deleting any questions, if so which ones?


Q21] It’s Halloween, you have three choices which do you pick? Party, TricknTreating or staying at home curtain closed watching spooky stuff?

Staying home watching spooky stuff.

Reminders – Stream of Consciousness Saturday – SOCS – Empty/Hollow


Reminders -Stream of Consciousness Saturday – SOCS – Empty/Hollow

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS May 19/18


It’s Saturday, so it’s time for another SOCS, hosted by Linda G. Hill. Thanks, Linda!

Here’s the prompt: Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “empty/hollow.” Use one, use both, entirely up to you. Enjoy!


Empty and hollow reminds me of this past Thursday and most of Friday. My computer went out, and had to be in the repair shop. I was feeling all empty and hollow because I couldn’t do my usual blogging on those days.

Empty and hollow reminds me of Halloween. That’s my favorite holiday, and sometimes we’d get a big pumpkin and hollow out the inside seeds until it was empty, making for a great jack-o-lantern.

Empty and hollow reminds me of the TV show, “Sleepy Hollow”. It was on a couple of years ago, and may have ran for a couple of seasons, but it was a really good show. I watched them all, discussed it with a friend, and we were both sad that they didn’t make any more episodes.

Empty and hollow reminds me of something my Dad wrote a long time ago. Going through old papers, from his own school days, I came across a little notebook. In it he had written a report (I think that’s what it was), on the short-story, “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow”. Pretty cool!

Empty and hollow reminds me of finishing up my fan fiction story, “Two Souls: Into the Fire”. I loved writing it so much, that when the ending came, I felt all empty and hollow…and sad that it was done.

Empty and hollow reminds me of turning the last page on a book you’ve really enjoyed reading. I always wish it would go on some more. I don’t like being in between books to read. I have plenty on my TBR stacks, but still you’re feeling in the last book’s world, and it’s hard to get going on a brand new read, hoping it will be just as good.

Empty and hollow reminds me of waiting a whole week until the next SOCS prompt is revealed. 🙂

Until next time, wishing you a lovely weekend and week to come, filled with fun, laughter, good times, and relaxation, but not empty and hollow.

Jigsaw Puzzle Update


Jigsaw Puzzle Update


It’s been awhile since I’ve mentioned the jigsaw puzzles we work, and we are still going strong on completing them. Here’s how it’s been going.

I believe all these can be enlarged by clicking the photo.


We just finished this one today. It took a long time, as all those sunflowers were pretty hard to do. There were so many yellow and yellow/orange pieces!


This one was pretty cool. It was a glow in the dark one, and the middle photo shows it actually glowing.



This one was fun to do. The hardest part was the rug.


This one was interesting. It was fun to work, but kind of hard. At first we thought the picture and the puzzle pieces just didn’t match up, but in the end it did. There was a little booklet, with a story of a murder mystery, and after working the puzzle we were to find out who did it.


This one was fun, and not too awfully hard to work. Lots of kitty cuteness!


Here’s some more cat puzzles. I can’t remember in which order we did these. Seems we’ve bought so many puzzles featuring cats!



Here’s one that’s not about cats. It has toys and games from a long time ago. It was fun to see some that we had when we were kids.


I liked this one a lot, because it was all about spooky things of Halloween!


This one is the newest one, which we started today. So far, so good. I’ve already got most of the outside border done.


So, that’s pretty much up to date, if I didn’t forget one. Hope you enjoyed looking! 🙂

Dear Diary- October 24 – November 3, 1961 – NanoPoblano – Day 3


Dear Diary –  October 24 – November 3, 1961 – NanoPoblano – Day 3



It’s approaching that time again


This one is for my NanoPoblano post, and is also a regular feature here. I was reading the next few entries to my Diary, and what a funny thing…my last post was for the ‘Would You Rather’ question about wasps, and I can tell you exactly when I got stung by one! It’s written down in my diary entries! 🙂



For those who haven’t seen my Dear Diary posts before, a little explanation. This is my actual diary I wrote in for a full year, when I was 10 years old. I wrote every day, sometimes a lot, sometimes a little, sometimes funny, sometimes boring, but it was all recorded. Names of relatives are only first initials with relationship in parentheses. I’ve typed the entries just as I wrote them, mis-spellings and all, but corrected in parentheses. More posts of Dear Diary can be found by using catagories, or search box. Hope you enjoy reading my childhood diary! 🙂

Creaky floors

Creaky doors

Noisy ghosts abound

Graveyard near

Fuels your fear

Ghosts do swirl around

Skritchy scratch

Unlocked latch

A eerie, ghostly sound

Draw the curtain

Must be certain

Ghosts remain underground

House so creaky

Ghosts so freaky

Try not to come unwound


For dVerse Poets – Quadrille # 43 (write to the prompt word ‘creak’, and use only 44 words)

Quadrille #43

Thanks for hosting, Grace!
