Of a yard sale, a book, and an alert~~~~

Hello My Darklings,

First I want to say that I am gratified that you like my blog the way it is, I do appreciate that.

Secondly I have found a Monster High Doll for Coralline and I just got word that the poor child is suffering from Allergies, the Doctor is being careful with the Meds she's taking, but it should help.

I'm going to see her tonight and surprise her with the Doll so I will know more. 

I have to admit that in going to the stores I came across a yard sale, and had to stop, I found some unusual looking garden statues for my yard, one is of a sea serpent and comes in 3 sections, so it looks like it will flow in and out of the grass or if I mount it on some sort of brick work in water it will look like it is flowing in the pond.

The other is a sort of deranged looking Unicorn, its the only way I can describe it, but it looks insane enough to fit in the garden for what I have in mind.

BUT I missed out on purchasing a real 2nd hand coffin----is that just my luck!!!

But the seller told me that it was purchased by a teacher from a medical school---and the seller said for me to come back in two weeks---tons of Halloween things will be for sale---I plan to get there when it opens, in the early A.M. coffee mug in hand, and Doyle's' van at the ready.  You know me and Halloween, my Darklings.

One of my co-workers this morning left me a note about a book that I might be interested in reading, knowing my taste for the bizarre, the morbid etc.  It's a book about a serial killer that no one has heard of names Edward Wayne Edwards, I think the author is Jon Cameron, and it's just being released.  It looks bizarrely fascinating about a serial killer who may have done murders and managed to get innocent people arrested and jailed, such as the Abbot Murder case, the Shepard Murder case, possibly the Zodiac Case and the Black Dahlia.

I'm going to request this book through my local Library and if I find it worthy to add to my collection then I will purchase it.

I'm typing this on my coffee break here at work so it has to be a bit short, but right now my fellow co-workers and I are concerned about a situation that has developed and it's about someone that our Boss is somewhat familiar with and he is concerned as well.

He has given us this information and I did see it on the news last night----We don't know where this person is hiding and since I'm here in the San Francisco Bay Area, I'm asking my Darkling friends to be on the watch for this person----there is no accusation by me, but to simply be careful, inform the authorities if you see him and to let the authorities handle this.

I am printing part of the article for your information. You can find the person's picture on the internet on Yahoo news.

FBI issues nationwide alert for San Francisco man

Associated Press

By GARANCE BURKE 2 hours ago      

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The FBI has issued a nationwide alert to law enforcement agencies about a San Francisco social media consultant they consider armed and dangerous who is wanted on suspicion of possessing explosives.

FBI spokesman Peter Lee said Sunday that 42-year-old Ryan Kelly Chamberlain II was last seen in a dark blue, hooded sweatshirt and jeans.

Multiple agencies, including hazardous materials crews, searched Chamberlain's apartment in San Francisco's Russian Hill neighborhood on Saturday, blocking off the street to vehicle and pedestrian traffic for much of the day.

Lee gave no details Sunday about the nature of the investigation, but said authorities believe Chamberlain is acting alone.

"We believe he is alone in the vehicle but we just don't know, again, where his ties or his network is so we ask that any members of the public be on the lookout for anyone that matches this man's description," Lee said at a press conference outside FBI headquarters on Sunday.

Chamberlain is traveling in a white 2008 Nissan Altima with Texas or California license plates, but authorities do not know where he is heading, Lee said.
Our Boss feels that it's possible that Mr. Chamberlain might be under some sort of mental strain and we hope that he is found unharmed and can explain his actions. 
So Darklings do be careful.
And when I read this book I'll let you know what I think of it.
Later Darklings


  1. You found a COFFIN at a YARD SALE??? I want a coffin, too!! If only I had room for one... Oh, well, I hope they get another one in and you grab it! BTW, calling it a "2nd hand coffin" is VERY interesting! I'd love to know who had it first, and why they don't need it anymore!! ;-)

    1. A little bit of a long story, I'll post about it when I have a free minute or two or three.

  2. Yay on the items you were able to pick up at a yard sale...the sea serpent sounds wonderful. I think I know what it looks like. Design Tuscano had a set like that I believe.

    The new books sounds very interesting. I have read a lot of biographies etc. on serial killers. They frighten and fascinate me. Regardless of how much I learn I can never wrap my mind around the concepts and ideas that drive these people to do what they do. I cannot say they are "inhuman" because only humans commit such crimes but they do lack true humanity. I will have to watch for this a the library. This one looks to be interesting.

    Also bravo for Monster High dolls for helping a sick young lady feel better. When my granddaughter was younger that was a passion we shared. Those dolls are adorable:)

    Thanks so much for sharing your world with us:)


    1. Thank you Rebecca, I'm going to find the exact title for the book, yes even my mind cannot fully fathom the twisted workings of these "sick" minds.
