Anxiety Attack!

Lone walk. Fear the night. Soft footsteps.. black.. still, spooky. Fast flutter... Owl hoots. Neck hairs standing up! Headless horseman..giddyup! Eerie pumpkin grins... Noises behind me... Closer....hot breath on my neck!! Beat feet! Run like heck!!!

Hey Robert...This is great fun, just in time for Halloween. I can see it now, black lights and witches brew to greet the Trick or Treaters, with a ghostly voice chanting as they approach the walk to your porch..."Lone walk, Fear the night....aahhh! Just saw your Soup Mail from earlier this month and there's a reply waiting.

If this was in the contest and didn't win, I am flabbergasted. But perhaps you did it late? This is really really good, Robert. LUv, Andrea

I can see old Ichabod (spelling?) clacking along at a disjointed pace. Super effort. Love, Dave
