Sneeze or blow, but never pick. Trust me on this.

Who would have guessed? One wayward peanut, placed there by persons unknown, and my spotless blogging reputation is thrown into disrepute. Thank goodness that's over. The authorities have been alerted, of course, and the perpetrator of this despicable crime will have not only the Royal Canadian Mounted Police to deal with, but his own tortured conscience as well. I plan to search my heart for forgiveness. I trust you will do the same.

Your patience and warm wishes gave me and my family courage through this difficult ordeal. To show our gratitude, there will be free candy for you, if you would be so kind as to drop by our home on October 31. Wear a costume, and carry a bag so we can recognize you. In light of the emotional strain these events have placed on our family, we ask that you refrain from leaving burning bags of dogshit on our front step.

Thank you. We cannot adequately express our gratitude for your patience throughout this ordeal, but we hope that you will accept tomorrow's duck cartoon as a small measure of our appreciation.
