You know, I was interested in IC Jose Garza's truffle ice cream.
:batty: And?
He added a truffle raspberry jam and chocolate truffle ganasche. Which if I had all three components at once it'd be like Baskin-Robbins's Chocolate Raspberry Truffle flavor, the one flavor I've eaten in my entire life that I absolutely loathed the taste of. Mom loved it though.

*Drops off a gift-wrapped package in the doorside mailbox for Apt 6. The package holds different flavored teabags and a Storyteller bookmark I found at the Bizarre Bazaar for Kim, and a travel-sized bottle of Boober's favorite laundering lotion as birthday presents for the pair, sorry we didn't say anything about it this past weekend.
Hope you had a decent day. :excited: :insatiable: :hungry:

Gillis: How're you holding up?
Kim: Better. I think I've gotten over the shock from hearing the news last night. Don't think I'll be able to listen to an episode yet, though. Probably not for a while yet.
Gillis: (nodding) Understandable. And the writing's helping?
Kim: Mm-hmm. (nods) Keeps my mind off of all the possible directions AIO and Focus could go with Eugene now that Will's gone. Though obviously they're not going to decide anything right now; it's too soon. (breathes deep) Now, on a completely different subject, are you lot still coming to my house for Thanksgiving this year?
Gillis: We wouldn't miss it!

Kim: Hey guys, I'm watching the rest of last night's Battlebots if anyone's interested.
Lily: Ooh, I'm in!
Boober: Isn't the last hour just a rerun of the Bounty Hunters episodes from last season?
Kim: Yeah, but it's been so long I don't remember who winds up being the Bounty Hunter, so its almost like watching a new episode.
Boober: *shrugs* Good point.
Gillis: Have you noticed if they've aired any tribute to the poor young man with the horse mask yet?
Kim: Not yet. According to the GoFundMe they were trying to organize something for the final sessions that were taped in September, so we probably won't see anything until the final episodes. And that's if anything makes it on camera.

Man, it's good to hear someone still living in this ol' berg.
It's been snowing and raining on alternate days this month, you need a good umberella when steppin' out.
Good thing I've got a late afternoon get-together with the family to warm up these bones o' mine.

UD: Personally, I prefer the winter cold as it provides just the fright chill up people's spines.
:batty: So long as ve can still mingle down at the club and count heads there I'm happy.

*The scare crew set to making breakfast/clearing away the kitchen dishes/writing several fiendship cards to be sent to various HVC acquaintances.

*In the personal tribute portrait gallery...

The camera follows the trail of those who are honored in the halls of the building located within the James Maury Memorial Cemetery down one side, then curving slowly to travel up the opposite side.

David Bowie.
Jerry Parkes.
Don Sallin.
Jerry Jull.
Christine Nelson.
Jerry Nelson.
Richard Hunt.

Jim, Jane, and John Henson.

Matt Robinson.
Will Lee.
Alaina Reed-Hall.
Northern Calloway.
Carroll Spinney.
Emilio Delgado.
And the scare crew huddled at the newest portrait to be added, Bob McGrath.

Ed: Count, would you do the honors?
:batty: I... I can't. It's... *He brakes into quiet tears at the thought of one of the street's pillars' death.

Ed: Uncle D?
UD: Mmm, I could, but it wouldn't feel fright.

Ed: Okay... I might have an idea.
*Calls Kathy: Hi Kath. Yeah, we're holding up after the news last Sunday. Listen, I want to ask a favor. Is :sympathy: available?
*Ed explains what's going on. Okay, thanks.
*Hangs up, he'll be hre soon.

Rowlf shows up a few minutes later.
:sympathy: Hi fellas. You need me to do it huh.
He grabs a thin ink brush and bottle poised to add the name and dates at the bottom of the portrait.
:sympathy: From Ol' Brown Eyes to Ol' Blue Eyes, may your voice ring out as clear and golden in the heavens above as it did the time you were here with us on this earth.

Once the gang finishes up...
Ed: Come on guys, let's go to Jim's Coffee House for some hot chocolate or milkshakes, my treat, they're sure to have Bob's music playing there among all the holiday music.

RIP Bob McGrath, June 13, 1932-December 4, 2022.
