Inktober Day 13: When the boy heard that, he got very scared.  But he thought, “It doesn’t know where I am.  It never will find me.” Then he heard the voice once more.  Only now it was closer. “Where is my to-o-o-o-o-e? It groaned.  The boy pulled the blankets over his head and closed his eyes.  "I’ll go to sleep,” he thought. “When I wake up it will be gone.” But soon he heard the back door open, and again he heard the voice.  "Where is my to-o-o-o-o-e? It groaned.  Then the boy heard footsteps move through the kitchen into the dining room, into the living room, into the front hall.  Then slowly they climbed the stairs.   Closer and closer they came.  Soon they were in the upstairs hall.  Now they were outside his door.  -Alvin Schwartz

Inktober Day 17: An elderly couple came to the door.  They didn’t rent rooms, they said.  But they would be glad to have them stay overnight as their guests.  They had plenty of room, and they would enjoy the company. -Alvin Schwartz 

Inktober Day 16: A young man and his wife were on a trip to visit his mother. Usually they arrived in time for supper.  But they had gotten a late start, and now it was getting dark.  So they decided to look for a place to stay overnight and go on in the morning.  Just off the road, they saw a small house in the woods. “Maybe they rent rooms,” the wife said. So they stopped to ask. -Alvin Schwartz 


I did press today for House of Lies on New York Live and as I was walking into the studio for the live interview, there were a handful of dogs up for adoption in the hallway. I quickly scooped one up and brought her on set with me. Now I’m in love and hopefully this dog has been adopted. LOVE YOU SUNSET!!!


Good wood - love that staircase, and the rest ain’t too shabby either… Nestled high above Silicon Valley, the Shou Sugi Ban House is a massive remodelling of an old house and done beautifully. By Schwartz and Architecture.
