Veronica was glad she had accepted the invitation to the Fall Art Show. She passed up the table of goodies although she could hear their call. She noticed a bowl of salad on which there were black olives arranged in the likeness of a spider. She felt that was an unusual item, but it was close to Halloween. She walked slowly down the aisle examining the art displays,
they were not placed in uniform perpendicular lines , but in clusters. She wondered if where they were placed drew people to them. She did not have any statistics but at craft sales the best booth was near the door. A painting caught her eye. What caught her attention was a large full moon. There was a gray wolf howling at the moon. The wolf was silhouetted against the moon with its head raised. At the wolf's left side was a shanty. The shanty's door was ajar and a dark figure held a bow and arrow. In front of the raised foot of the dark figure was a squeaky toy. That was not the only detail that was unusual, but among the tall grass surrounding the shanty and wolf on one blade was a praying mantis. She knew in her soul that if this was a motion picture the noise of the squeaky toy would throw off the aim of the dark figure sending the praying mantis and wolf in different directions, and the wolf would be safe. You could feel the tension looking at the picture. Veronica then moved on to the next cluster of art objects, but wondered if that picture would be something she would want in her house. It would be a talking piece.

Sandy Shore could not find the glamour that was supposed to be in going to the beach. That penguin with the cinnamon floppy hat sat in the only rocking chair. Sandy's objective now was to get into that rocking chair. She tried bribing with fresh fish ,but the penguin sat firm. Sandy felt that the cormorant flying over head, and pooping was a symbolism of her stay at the beach.
