Little purple devious...

Just wondering, have you ever read anything by Rudolfo Anaya? I loved Bless Me, Ultima and Alburquerque. They're both set in the Southwest and very hypnotic & beautiful.

And clowns are indeed evil. Stephen King's It turned be off forever!

I love A Wrinkle in time. It's one of the classic books of my childhood.

Donna said...

I agree; clowns are the devil!

I've heard that there are no fireflies/lightening bugs in California. What's up with dat?
I know summer is here when I see twinkling lights in our yard.

Clowns should be banned. There's nothing fun or funny about them. They're a nightmarish nuisance.
