Halloween Countdown, Day 21

Happy Friday! Don't miss mabiana's new pictures of a remarkable pumpkin exhibition in Ludwigsburg, Germany! (Thanks to agentxpndble.)

Also, be sure to check out ExtremePumpkins.com for pumpkin carving at its wildest. Make sure to check out the galleries of past contest winners. They are amazing!


Here's another amazing photo from lizziebelle. I love the leaves in this one:

Text of the Day: Today's short story is "Death and the Woman" by Gertrude Atherton (1857-1948).

Excerpt:
Her husband was dying, and she was alone with him. Nothing could exceed the desolation of her surroundings. She and the man who was going from her were in the third-floor-back of a New York boarding-house. It was summer, and the other boarders were in the country; all the servants except the cook had been dismissed, and she, when not working, slept profoundly on the fifth floor. The landlady also was out of town on a brief holiday.

The window was open to admit the thick unstirring air; no sound rose from the row of long narrow yards, nor from the tall deep houses annexed. The latter deadened the rattle of the streets. At intervals the distant elevated lumbered protestingly along, its grunts and screams muffled by the hot suspended ocean.


Read the complete short story.
