#WitchWeek2021 Day 6

Over at Calmgrove, you’ll find the final Witch Week post. Jean (from Howling Frog Books) reviews a sci-fi novel by John Verney that was published more than 60 years ago. Looks like I’ll be spending time in used book stores until I find a copy of this one.

At last it is Guy Fawkes’ Day, appropriate for the end of our game of Hangman, with Mr. F meeting his destiny. Because only one guess was submitted yesterday, and it was incorrect (on purpose perhaps?), this game has ended as you see. But, in honor of Bonfire Night in the UK, I decided to have a bit of fun. Slide the arrow to the right and then to the left to see both images.

Obviously I can’t draw

No more guesses will be accepted, but come back tomorrow for a surprise finish.

For your musical entertainment, I believe you’ll recognize this tune, Charles Gounod’s “Funeral March of a Marionette.” A perfect finale for another Witch Week.

    Poor Guido, the fall guy in all sense of the phrase. But I liked your phrase linking Halloween directly with Bonfire Night…

    We’ve already heard a few fireworks and it’s not even 6 o’clock in the evening. I think a certain parliamentary party in government definitely need a rocket up them for their continued lying, U-turns, missteps, corruption and jettisoning of any residual integrity…

      “Poor”? Might I remind you of his violent and murderous intentions?

      But tomorrow I have a wee reward for those who guessed the phrase, including a chance to brag about how quickly they got there.

      As for that certain party — I really don’t know why we continue to be shocked, SHOCKED, to learn our politicians are mendacious crooks. They’re all definitely going to The Bad Place (cf. The Good Place, on Netflix; I just watched it for the 4th time, and it still is the best TV program in the history of the universe).

  2. I guessed it! I know what it is! But I’m not saying, I’ll just say I like it very much. 😀
