Run! run inside, fast fast
Stay there, yes! stay indoors
Don't come out! wash your hands, sanitize too
Don't ask - but why. It's the

He is real; real as can be, we are being hunted.

  1. Good advice for the children. We would get a stay inside order growing up on the farm. 'Gypsies' in horse drawn wagons would "take" children out at play. Mostly though, they would sell things or take 'donations.' But mainly I think just because they were "different".
    Have a blessed day,

  6. My mother told of gypsies camping in the river bottoms near her home in southern Illinois, and of her father taking her and her siblings on a buggy ride to visit the gypsy encampment where he loved to talk horse-trading with the men. Obviously grandpa never heard the story of bypsies stealing children!

  13. I love that phrase, 'the new normal bogeyman'. Though I don't love the fact of his existence. You got it so right!

  29. It was great to hear you read this, Gillena. A very real bogeyman indeed. We're starting to feel a bit more hopeful here, and I actually saw my sisters yesterday.
    I hope the situation improves soon in Trinidad and Tobago. 💙
