What might you find in that old trunk in your attic?

What might you find in that old trunk in your attic?: I had forgotten all about this story until I was sitting around the campfire listening and telling ghost tales at Trine University. It was a dark evening with a glowing campfire when I suddenly remembered. So for this Halloween weekend I share this story and maybe it will come in handy one day. Just sit back and imagine …


What is in your trunk?



Here is the link to my Halloween column! As always, enjoy, and thank you for reading! Just click on the above link and there is your Halloween story, and it is true, of course!

Happy Halloween!!

Tonight is Poe Night!!

Haunted Hall of Humanities at Trine University  


 




It is Poe Night once again at Trine University. This is my fifth year of teaching and my fifth year of hosting Poe Night. As most of you know, I am a Poe fanatic, and I also love Halloween.

My students have rehearsed and are all ready for this fun night beginning at 7:00 in Taylor Hall. I hope you can make it. And, if not, host your own Poe Night complete with lights and a raven. You must have a raven!

Indiana painter remembered through the woman who loved him...

Indiana painter remembered through the woman who loved him: With a swirling long dress and a hat perched on top on top of my bed, Ellen and I head into the Tropicana Hotel in Evansville. The lights flash boasting the casino as we leave the parking garage to check in.


Here i am sharing a quiet moment with Daisy,


Here is the link to last week's column. It is sweet and sad because it is the end of the year tour of T.C. Steele. There will still be more shows, but none because of the Bicentennial. It has been quite a year. I was so thrilled to have my photo taken with Daisy. 

Thank you all for traveling with me on this journey. To find the column just click on the above link. As always, thank you for reading.

Now there’s 2 more to make the world a better place

Now there’s 2 more to make the world a better place: With my ukulele slung over my shoulder and a book tucked under my arm, I board the aircraft in South Bend. Someone is in my seat because someone is in his seat … and so it goes. It doesn’t really matter to me, I tell the flight attendant, let everyone sit as they will.

Here is the link to last week's column. I spent the week in Phoenix helping out with my two little twin grandchildren...Faith and Noah.

As always, thank you for reading. Until next time...
