I forgot to get a pumpkin. So I'm hoping this

will keep those witches away.

Now I'm going to settle down with Cormac McCarthy's The Road. It made my tutor cry, so I'm rather looking forward to it.

what's it made from, Eryl? And did it work?

Eryl Shields said...

Savannah ~ I won't say a word, promise, XXX

Debra ~ it's made from fired clay. And it does seem to have done the trick.

Oooh! A loving skull?

The Road is fantastic. Very spare adn bleak. Ugly and beautiful.

Eryl Shields said...

Sam ~ Oh it's terribly romantic, drives me nuts when I'm trying to work.

I didn't get a chance to read much of The Road last night as I suddenly realised it was the last half hour of my best friend's birthday so phoned her. She actually answered, and we chatted for an hour and half. But what I did read was all of those things.

Great skull!

Not read that book. I could do without bleak and tear-inducing at the moment

Conan Drumm said...

I read it during the "Summer". Be interested to hear what you make of it.

Eryl Shields said...

Kim ~ you must be like Stevie then, he can't stand bleak and tear inducing. Whereas I find it helps enormously: if I'm crying about fictional characters I'm not crying about myself.

Conan ~ I'll share my view if you share yours.

The season finale of the NHRA's Powerade High pressure blower Series began with Pedregon holding a 12-point Industrial fan edge over Wilkerson and a 39-point Industrial blower lead over Hight.A near capacity crowd -- perhaps Commercial blower sensing that the title could be decided early -- had maneuvered ugg boots around shuttered freeways and other roads closed by the Wholesale Jewelry Southern California brush fires pressure blower and arrived on time for the pressure blowers opening round.It began with Pedregon advancing fans to the semifinals by knocking out Jerry Toliver.Then Wilkerson lost blowers to 14-time champion John Force.
