Solar-powered broom coming in handy with gas prices on rise

Ride is few straws short of complete broom, but works

IRISH KEMP ¦ Contributing Writer


(Oct. 26, 2012) Halloween: A spooky time of the year, right? If the price of gas weren’t so high I wouldn’t need my snatched broom. Wouldn’t you know, it being an election year, the culprits thought they were cool asking for 10 eyes of newts. How gross! Not to worry, I’ve had a solar-powered broom stashed away in the closet for years. A couple of straws short of a full broom, but it works for me.

Enough of this skull duggery. Am I the only one discombobulated about those orange, green and blue lines popping up on Caine Woods’ sidewalks? Is Hal Adkins messing with this old broad’s mind or is there an ongoing underground beautification project in progress? Totally discombobulated neighbors, hung up on that “steppin’ on a crack” phobia wanna know.

Lots of fun things going on around town. No doubt in my mind dis’ is de’ place to be when it comes to being home for the holidays. Places to celebrate any holiday a bodaciously humongous amount of times are everywhere. How convenient that Halloween landed on Wednesday, Oct. 31, the day that local seniors party hardy from 3-6 p.m., 52 weeks a year, at Harpoon Hanna’s. A great opportunity to be all or anything you ever wanted to be at this event. A prize for the most innovative costume, of course. Come early for ringside seats.

I woulda’ told you about the Irish Club’s pizza party meeting, held Thursday, Oct. 25, at St. Andrews Center, but I’d be a day late and a dollar short. Just ask Mary Pantos.

I’m sure that many folks think that my witch and leprechaun tales are figments of my imagination. Not true. I’m a Pisces; we never lie. With the exception of God, what I see with my very own Irish eyes is what I believe.

Speaking of weird things happening this month. Would you believe my attachment clip last week picked up a scrambled array of disjointed statements in lieu of my sum-up paragraph? My apologies to the editing staff. Many of my readers thought I had fallen off my rocker. Some had actually muddled thru it and assumed they were losing it. Hang in there, kids, many of those so called figments will be heading back to Salem for the elections. They’re voting to pass a no campaign fundraising bill. All money raised will be put toward our nation’s deficiency fund.

Believe it or not? Is that a question?
