The Pied Pepper
  The Parroting Pepper
The Parroting Pepper

Another Piping Pepper
Moved His Way To The Front
He Wanted To Warn Us
And He Was Quite Blunt!

"The Moon Isn't All
THAT YOU REALLY MUST FEAR!
There Are GHOST AND GOBLINS
AND MONSTERS NEAR..."

He Said They Hide In The Tress
UNTIL YOU ARE CLOSE BY
THEN COME OUT IF THEY PLEASE
IF THEY SEE YOU SHAKE OR CRY!

"So Try To Think Happy Thoughts
DO NOT FOCUS ON "THEM"
Leaving The Forest Alive
SURELY COMES WITH TWO FOLD GRINS!"

Laura, you are going to give me nightmares but this pepper dude is kind of cute. Maybe I will look at peppers in a different light now that you have given them a personality. Fantastic work here Laura. I love your imagination and witty words.

This is too funny, Laura! I love to see And this fellow go through all these changes. And you have managed to give this pepper real CHARACTER! He should have a name - and a story - and some friends! (But wait, I'll bet he already does) A very fun image and terrific work!

Wuahhhhhhhhhh!
Quickly, SSSLaura - hide me.
That horrible Pepper is coming after me!!!!!!!!
He's gonna catch me. EEEEEEEKKKKK!!
He's gonna eat me, isn't he?
And here I was - thinking that it was the other way around.
I guess this crazy world of Halloween month is turning everything upside down!!
Okay - I looked at him again. He's actually quite cute, isn't he?
And this is totally fabulous, Sis!!!!!!!!!

Last to First:

Brett...You dont want to know! The next step we take in the story ISN'T Pretty! Queen Kewpie said so!

Mumj! HA! Silly dilly. -I- wasn't telling you to do anything!!! The Piping and Parroting Peppers Did!!!

BUT HEY...I think garlic and sunglasses are great ideas! LETS go with it!

Thanks Renata!!! :) Stay close!!!

Gord, it's a delight having you gather 'round with is. you are always welcome...

Special note To Nadya:

Two names came to mind:
Doctor Pepper and Sargent Pepper

But those aren't very original.

How about Red Rover & Flaming Frank?

HA!

I might need YOU to name them.

Thanks All.

I LOVE Red Rover and Flaming Frank!! PERFECT! So is this delightful music! I don't see why anybody's scared... this is one haunted forest I would like to stay in forever! (Or was that the trap?! The Siren Song! Oooooh noooooo!!) Either way this is seriously wonderful! Makes me feel 10 again. Laura, you should absolutely do a childrens book!!!

YES YES the book is forming...now get to it, you have a wonderful imagination creating these everyday items into a Halloween story with your powers behind the camera and with pen in your toes!!!

For, beware, the story increases to the haunted scarey foes...
Not a walk for us alone to be
YOU will all beware you will see!!!

Hi MsTique and Youyou, S.Z., Mumj, Tammy-girl & Daniella!!! :)

Well if I take the plunge and do a book I think Pat G. will have to be part of it and supply the music. The first fully musical book! HA! Thanks you guys. I am highly complimented by your words...and ALMOST take it as a sign since you are all such talents.

THANKS VERY MUCH!
