Wow…featured by Sally Cronin!! Thank you so much, Sally! 🙂
In the past, I have blogged about the “Chili-Cook-off” in Bourbon, Missouri. I even put the event in my book, “The Wolf’s Moon,” but placed in the town of Maple Hills.
Next year, I hope to donate another novel as well. (It’s well on its way to the finish line).
This year many more people donated items for the raffle. All the proceeds go to the local school district.
It was a wonderfully sunny , warm October Saturday for such a get-together, all sponsored by the Town & Country Bank.
Ken Roberts spends half of an hour singing as Elvis Presley.
Crawford Country Electric allows a “bucket” truck to give rides with Mark operating the controls.

This is my Certificate of Appreciation to all the participants who work so hard and invest their time for the children of Crawford County R-I school district.
Thank you all and may the Good Lord remember each of you.

Cthulhu is a fictional deity in the Cthulhu Mythos. He is described as an ancient entity of immense power that manipulates the minds of human beings from his sunken island of R’lyeh. He first appears in H.P. Lovecraft’s “The Call of Cthulhu”, but remains a recurring presence and force throughout the stories in the titular mythos.
The most detailed descriptions of Cthulhu in “The Call of Cthulhu” are based on statues of the creature. One, constructed by an artist after a series of baleful dreams, is said to have
“ …Yielded simultaneous pictures of an octopus, a dragon, and a human caricature. A pulpy, tentacled head surmounted a grotesque and scaly body with rudimentary wings.”
“ …[Another, recovered by police from a raid on a murderous cult,] represented a monster of vaguely anthropoid outline, but with an octopus-like head whose face was a mass of feelers, a scaly, rubbery-looking…
