Here there be monsters

And they be yucky.

In Progress …

It’s April 13 and I’m already behind schedule.

A pyramid of paper skulls, having accumulated like dust bunnies, grins like … um, like you would expect. This peanut gallery watches everything that goes on in the Spook Shop, and it’s especially interested in this advanced prototype Grumblesque critter.

When he ships out next month, he will represent a complete Grumble re-design, which is important, since your old pal Spook’s old pal Grumble was officially decommissioned last November. It was a solemn moment, and I admit that it took a while to get up the nerve to put a cloth over his face and saw off his head. Grumbles and Phoenixes have a lot in common, mainly a fondness for setting fires, so he’ll be back, and better than he was before; better, stronger, faster.

Experimental gargoyles occupy the number two slot on the 2010 project list, followed by “Gutter Bats”, and a slew of new tombstones. Spooky Hollow has experienced a haunted housing shortage and needs to expand. Especially with the upcoming horde of new creatures.

We’re trying out all sorts of new ideas this season, and I’m looking forward to seeing what will happen. Mrs. Spookyblue is looking forward to that Capsela-looking thing relocating back to the garage and out of the big chair in the living room.

Hit and Run

Grumble can't driveAllegheny County Sherriff’s deputy Roger DeMarco was treated for minor injuries after a riding lawn mower crashed through the garage door of his Monroeville home, pinning him to the wall yesterday afternoon. According to a police report, the riding mower was driven by a six-foot-tall scarecrow who then ran from the scene.

Although not seriously injured, DeMarco, a reserve SWAT member and competitive shooter, was shaken after the accident. When asked for his account of the event, witnesses say he became incoherent and insisted that he’d been bitten, shouting, “I don’t want to be walkin’ around like that!”

Grumble Say – About Ants

What happen puny blue man? Probably disappear in puff of logic or something. Pffft!

Grumble say welcome to terrible world of Grumble, where Grumble answer all question and fix all problem.

Now, what happen today? Not care. Grumble say about ants. Not think about puny ants much till get in places not want, like pants or Frankenberry. That when get attention. See two ants walk along side of pool, not care. Million ants in deep end a different matter. Change world.

You say, “How that happen? Grumble not know what talk about!” Grumble say shut hole and listen.

Long time ago ants come America where can make own life. They build towns, learn inventions, go church where want. After while, decide not like sissy king push them around, tell king kiss foot. This make king go bat-poo crazy.

See, terrible king of Angle Land like deep end of pool where he float without stub nasty toes. Not have to work. Just float around and boss all ants. He hate ants in deep end, so he make lots new rules, put red coats in charge. He think some coats scare ants, make them give up want freedom.

Terrible red coats smash some ants, but rest get together and say, “We in deep end ants!” Rest history.

Grumble like hear about history of country on Fourth of July, light pretty sparklers, eat tasty hot dog.

Hope have good In Deep End Ants Day. Grumble go see if find puny Spooky man now, make sandwich, pet dogs.
