Have a safe Halloween Everyone

The Night Wind
by Eugene Field

Have you ever heard the wind go "Yooooo"?
'Tis a pitiful sound to hear!
It seems to chill you through and through
With a strange and speechless fear.
'Tis the voice of the night that broods outside
When folk should be asleep,
And many and many's the time I've cried
To the darkness brooding far and wide Over the land and the deep:
"Whom do you want, O lonely night,
That you wail the long hours through?"
And the night would say in its ghostly way:
"Yoooooooo! Yoooooooo! Yoooooooo!"

My mother told me long ago
(When I was a little tad)
That when the night went wailing so,
Somebody had been bad;
And then, when I was snug in bed,
Whither I had been sent,
With the blankets pulled up round my head,
I'd think of what my mother'd said,
And wonder what boy she meant!
And "Who's been bad to-day?"
I'd ask Of the wind that hoarsely blew;
And the voice would say in its meaningful way:
"Yoooooooo! Yoooooooo! Yoooooooo!"

That this was true I must allow--
You'll not believe it, though!
Yes, though I'm quite a model now,
I was not always so.
And if you doubt what things I say,
Suppose you make the test;
Suppose, when you've been bad some day
And up to bed are sent away
From mother and the rest--
Suppose you ask, "Who has been bad?"
And then you'll hear what's true;
For the wind will moan in its ruefulest tone:
"Yoooooooo! Yoooooooo! Yoooooooo!"

Chris is off to PTI

October 18, 2008 mom, dad, and me moved Chris into his apartment to go to school. It is very hard for me to let him go. We talk everyday, sometimes more then once. He tells me he misses me and of cource I miss him.
He has been there a week and I said I was not going to go see him, and I'm not. Mom, Dad and Miya went to see him and to take him a computer, drafting table, and left overs that I know he will love to eat. They are going shopping for a couple more things he needs. Boy do I wish I would of went, but dh is working and I am home with the other 2 kids.
Here are some pics on his apartment.

Time Out

Time out isn't always the way to go. I am puting one foot in front of the other and moving on.


I am a great believer in luck. The harder I work, the more of it I seem to have.
