“Kill you all!” The clown was laughing and screaming. “Try to stop me and I’ll kill you all! Drive you crazy and then kill you all! You can’t stop me!”

Yesterday was hot and humid. Today is dark and humid. Tomorrow will be blistering hot. It rained earlier. My guess is sometime after 6 as underneath my papers was dry. Today, Gracie and I are finally getting to the dump. I have been storing bags on the deck. They smell this time of year.

The Globe this morning had a few tidbits. My favorite was titled ” Are sightings Pennywise or just clown foolish.”Stephen King fans will recognize Pennywise as the clown in his novel It. The book is scary enough, but the movie clown is frightening. I looked it up: coulrophobia is fear of clowns. The newspaper relates the story of a man in Greensboro, NC who saw a clown who was typically dressed: red curls, oversized shoes, blue pants and a poker dot shirt. The clown, however, was wearing a scary mask. The guy had a machete and chased the clown who disappeared into the woods. The guy called the police. It doesn’t say why. The officers searched but were unable to find anyone matching the description. That, however, was not the first sighting. It seems clowns have been menacing the area since early August and one tried to lure some children into the woods. There have been a half-dozen sightings. The police haven’t found any proof, and the reason for the clowns’ existence is just as perplexing. It could be a stunt for a new movie, “31.” The police announced they will arrest anyone dressed like a clown, “It’s illegal. It’s dangerous. It’s inappropriate, and it’s creating community concern and needs to be stopped.”

Killer Klowns from Outer Space is a horror comedy. I love it. Shadow puppets are weapons. Victims are wrapped in cotton candy. Popcorn attacks people. An ice cream truck is important to the plot. My suggestion is if you like silly but fun movies this is the one; however, if you are afraid of clowns stay away from this movie.

I am going to miss the first debate, and I am so bummed. There is an internet cafe in Bolga for which you pay by the hour. My first thought was to find where the debate is streaming, pay the money and use the password to connect from my iPad, but the cafe will be closed by the time the debate starts as Ghana is 4 hours ahead. Plan B is hoping one of my former students might know someone with a home router and wifi.

When I think about my trip, all sorts of pictures “dance in my head.”Ghana is colorful. The market is the best place to roam. It is a treasure trove of cloth, fruits and vegetables. The streets are lined with people selling food. On my last trip I found the sausage man. The kelewele wagon is parked at the end of the stores. That one I’ll visit often!

    I’ve never liked clowns they’re creepy and do fit in well in any horror movie., I wasn’t surprised at all when IT showed itself as a clown 🙂 I think I would like Killer Klowns from Outer Space though 🙂

    I’m not sure if we’ll be able to see the first debate here but they have been following this election intensely so I wouldn’t be surprised if we can. With my luck however it will be on a time when I can’t see it anyway 🙂

    Warm, mostkly cloudy and with a humidity at 99% has made our days rather nasty, I’m so glad I stop working at noon tomorrow 🙂

    Have a great day!

      Clowns have never bothered me. I never saw them as scary, even the creepy ones. I have to admit, though, that Pennywise is creepy. His snatching kids is what is scary.

      I am really sad about this debate. It is question and answer so I’m hoping Trump will give a few of his crazy plans when asked specific questions. He has been flip-flopping lately on his own ideas.

      Summer again for tomorrow and the weekend!

      Have a wonderful evening.

    And over to the Palace went Mrs MDH and me, for an evening with Adele, the second sold out night in Detroit. Despite my initial reservations I was stunned by the performance of the girl from Tottenham. She was just plain terrific. Supported by a 22 piece ensemble, she exhibited extraordinary control of stage and voice especially considering she is 28. No doubt she will be thrilling audiences long after I am gone. We could have had it all….rolling in my Jeep….Isnt that how it goes ?

      My Dear Hedley,
      You do lead a wonderful life!

      I have loved Adele’s voice from the first moment I heard it. I knew she wasn’t a drop in the proverbial music bucket, the here today gone quickly bucket.

    There seem to be a lot of clown sightings all over the place of late. I guess that’s what happens when there are so many clowns and so few circuses. Maybe they’re a dying breed. Let’s ask Dave Davies of The Kinks…

      I almost posted this but thought I’d posted The Kinks often so I am glad you posted it!!

      This is a totally interesting video. Showing the old couple dancing is perfect. His make-up is sad as befitting the song.

    I LOVE the Killer Klowns movie. Perfect brain candy. We need that once in a while.

    Is it possible for you to DVR the debate? I am sure it will also eventually end up on YouTube…

    Hot and sticky here. Waving to make a breeze…

      I am so glad to find another fan of Killer Klowns. Maybe I’ll make it the last of the deck movies.

      I can DVR it. I’ll just have to stop myself from reading anything on-line.

      I have turned on my AC. It was getting muggy in here, and I figured to get a lead on tomorrow’s heat.
