Hello, all.
Here’s the art for now, and we’ll have more listed on Tuesday…
And if you haven’t found them by now, our patterns are on our eBay sister account, artbeforethehorse.
Yes, this newsletter is quite early, especially for me. My arch nemesis, daylight savings time, is ending and I’ve decided to randomly adjust my clock and use a calendar from 1982.
Actually, turning the clock back an hour may confuse things a bit concerning our auctions ending today. Everyone is so used to seeing them end at a certain time every week, but today they’ll be ending an hour earlier than normal. So if you’re on the east coast, they’ll end at 7:00 PM, and if you’re on the west coast they’ll end at 4:00 PM. If you live in the central or mountain time zones, you’re probably used to everyone letting you do the math yourself by now, so I’ll leave you to it.
Halloween passed us by here without many raps on the door. We always seem to live in a house away from busy trick-or-treating routes. We only got one trick-or-treater this year…a teenaged boy without a costume. You may be tempted to send these non-festive candy gatherers away empty handed, but this is really when you should consider the true and literal meaning of the phrase “trick or treat.”
Umm…I choose treat.
OK, I’ll leave you with a story from the ghost of Halloweens past. Our son was about four years old and was dressed as a cowboy. We knocked on the first door of the night, and when it opened, he went right in. By the second door of the night, he knew to stay out on the porch. He told the lady at the door, “Wow, you have a beautiful house!”
“Well, aren’t you sweet! Here, you get an extra piece of candy!”
Now on to the third door…
“Wow, you have a beautiful house!”
The kid learns fast.
