Happy Postcard Friendship Friday! We'll celebrate with another Hallowe'en postcard. This one includes a verse that instructs us how to keep black cats - and their associated bad luck -away. The not so menacing Jack o' lantern will keep him at bay as long as he is fortified with a ring of pumpkin seeds.
Mmmm - pumpkin seeds! For years I was aware only of those store bought seeds that are covered in a salty salted saltish crust of salty salt. The main flavor was salt. I ate so many pumpkin seeds..well.. it's just a wonder I didn't end up like Lot's wife.
