Okay, I know it’s the month when ghouls and goblins run rampant and try to spook us mere mortals. But, it seems that one or two have been floating around my site lately and it’s starting to send chills down my spine!
Some unexplained phenomena I’ve been experiencing has me shaking my head and I’ve started to wear a garlic pendant around my neck. I’m not easily spooked…well, not unless I’m reading a horror novel or watching a rerun of “The Ring.” But, now I’m almost afraid to check my site and see what the ghosties have done to my posts.
While Danny was in the hospital, I couldn’t check my stats so it was a week later before I discovered that one of my posts titled “Watch Out For Those Gallinippers” caused a dramatic rise in my stats…all in one day! If you haven’t read it, it’s about mosquitoes, okay, really large mosquitoes that were threatening my little tropical state of Florida. It was funny (if I say so myself) but not really worthy of being viewed over two hundred and fifty times…all in one day…months after I published it. Spooky, right?
Then, this morning, I checked my site to find a mysterious thing had occurred. In answer to one of Bastet’s Pixleventures challenges, I posted a gallery of black and white pictures on my sister site, “A Dream Come True.” I had reblogged it (I share…yes I do…with my faithful followers on both sites) and somehow…some way…a picture appeared in my Reblog Post that I hadn’t used in the challenge.
It was a black and white photo of people jitter-bugging way back in the 50’s. I had used this photo in a piece titled “Dancing With The Shakes” and it was about the new trend called “The Harlem Shake” which I posted in February (way before twerking came our way!). How did it get in my reblog post?
As you can see, I’m confused and surprised by all these strange goings on…but, being the fearless Cranky…I will continue to post and hope that you will let me know if you notice something strange or unusual (now I know..I’m often strange and unusual, but you know what I mean). Because, there is definitely something spooky going on here in Crankyland!
