'A sense of humour lends you poise, it gives you balance and it helps you to bend without breaking'

(HH Pujya Gurudev Swami Chinmayananda)

Menokakkuls - the monster looms

Look out peeps, I can feel it in the air, I can feel it in me waters, I can feel it... Oh I know you are saying it's ages yet. But it's not. It's near and drawing nearer. So get yourselves into gear. Start planning now. There will be a bloghop here on October 31st with all the skeeri-us-t images pawssible; build your files, collect your evidence, show us your skillz.

This is a yellow-alert level warning... 
(rulez fur posting are below these advertising images).

Am going to be pretty strict (as the wicked witch of Blogville) and ask that only those who have genuinely put up a skeery post on October 31st, directly linked to the post at this blog, will be allowed to join in the bloghop. Any which seek to sneak in without actually engaging in the task will be removed from the list.

All you need to do is either photograph spooky places, or create your very own original artworks about skeery thingz and put them together in a post - even include a story or poem if you wish. You don't have to be a pet blogger to join in, but THERE ARE THREE 'MUST DOS';

  1. there must be a pet critter of some variety included at some point
  2. it must be your own original work and not 'borrowed'
Easy. Am not even asking that you put in a bloghop linky yourselves (I know some of you are tech-not-fishant about such things)...Have given you plenty of warning - but also be aware that those weeks and days have a nasty habit of disappearing if you don't watch them carefully. The amber warning will follow in due course. When it gets to Red Alert, know that you need to have gotten organised, or else!!!

You may copy this badge to spread the word, but then do please link back to this post so folks have the rulez.
Be in it or be witched. 😼
