‘Oh, man, lookit… Old Widow Margie has gone and tied one on again.’ Chief Stein said as he pulled the cruiser up in front of the house.

‘Isn’t she the lady who dressed like a corpse last year…scared those college girls spitless?’ Deputy Fine asked.

‘Yep.’ Stein shook his head. ‘Every year…sigh…’

‘Don’t see no harm.’ Fine shrugged.

‘Just watch…’

The girls giggled as they came around the house to view the cage. Inside, Widow Margie held a bag of candy. A sign said “Take One Piece ONLY…”. The girls reached in the cage…

“BOO!”

The girls screamed. Margie cackled.

WC: 100 words exact.

Author’s Note: My self-proclaimed mother, the real Widow Margaret, was well known for her Halloween pranks on the college students in my home town. Oddly, I think they looked forward to seeing what new prank she’d come up with every year… a rite of passage for the poor unsuspecting Freshman, and a source of entertainment for everyone else. The police would sit a few houses down and watch, but I think they did more laughing… Hope you got a chuckle, too.

“The Leg in Question”

‘It makes a statement… I think.’ She spoke as she circled the prosthetic leg that stood on the sidewalk next to the busiest intersection in the city.

‘Yeah, but what?’ He shrugged.

‘That’s the question, now, isn’t it?’ She smiled as he stepped off the curb.

Dear Ones,

I apologize for being so out of the loop lately. As many know, I’ve been slaving away at a book – Christian Fiction, and it’s been quite a journey with many rewrites, plot twistings, etc, etc…. today, I finally had a chance (during rain delay) to finish typing up the last chapter. The book in it’s entirety (13 serials) can be found on my  “sister” page. I just wanted to keep them all in the same place and it has worked beautifully for me that way. Anyhow… now that it’s complete, here’s the link to the last chapter and epilogue. To read the others just search the archives starting at the bottom.

It’s been a long journey with this book, but a great one, too! So, enjoy the read…
