Haunting Melody

I can't stop listening to Cole Porter.

Anyhow, started, edited, and finished up a piece for submission to the Northen Haunts thing today. Nothing great, though I did have to call my brother-in-law to get a little bit of advice on naming and old newspaper names up in his area. While my wife chatted for two hours, I typed, trimmed, edited, trimmed, typed, trimmed, reread, titled, and did a word count check on the piece. The first draft weighed in at a little over 1,000 words. The final draft sent out? Well..

...It was 666 words. Exactly.

I swear it wasn't intentional...

Is 'Haunting Melody' the title?Sounds good.

Inspiration for this antho. is eluding me at the moment.

No, though I'll have to use it someday. The title I'm going with is "It Wonder Me", a Pennsylvania Dutch saying my in-laws use. It means "I want to know" or "I don't know why".
