Boo! Welcome to the almost-Halloween edition of Thursday 13!
Thursday 13 is the easy meme where you make a list of 13 things on Thursday. Topic is your choice - books, photos, countries of the world, interesting stuff you're doing, the number of ways to knit a sweater - it is all good.
So make your list, sign up with Mr. Linky after Today's Fact, and join in the fun! We'll come around for a visit, too.
