      Michael finished Volume XXII of the Black&White thread. It still amazes me how B&W’s can inspire to make more of them.  The fun will continue in this twenty third Volume!

      Le me point this out: check the former Volume first before diving into this one.

      Haha, are you both pulling my leg, Ruth and Michael? Hereunder you can see the one who pointed out to check the former volume. Nice crab legs, Ruth. And the centipede by Michael looks to me like an angel’s wing. Love it.

      Ah, I didn’t realize we’d reached the 100 mark in Volume XXII! But I see now, there was a beauty posted by Ruth even after. Definitely worth traveling back to catch her Black plus White equals Gray. It looks like the sky is raining light both near and far.

      And on we go with XXIII with a fabulous—and humorous—start! Legs and wings… and does everyone see the pretty girl in Michael’s #232?

      You’re so right, Michael, about never knowing what will show up. And what a wild skyscape in #237! Might that be where Hans’s Crawling creature emerged from to make those (footprint?) holes in Ruth’s sky? I’m starting to get the Halloween heebie jeebies here!

      The veils make the composition perfect in #237, Michael.

      Ruth your great distrail looks like footsteps in the snow.

      My! My! What Have We Here? is hilarious, Keelin. And how could I miss Billy on the 8th of October? He is obviously having fun in the mountains of Tibet.

      The Mist and The Crevice, Dress Rehearsal and The Worm have all set me up to find Michael’s energetic #238 adding to the buildup of a Happy Halloween mood. Toss in a little Dim Light and I am properly spooked! But hey, why not celebrate with a bit of bubbly? Cheers to you, my friends!

      Bubbly all over above, but in Slàinte! i see the head of an alerted snake ready to attack, Keelin. Maybe the result of having had too much bubbly drinks?

      Timely warning about tomorrow’s hangover, Michael! I wouldn’t want my brain to look like the Opposite of Bubbles—another great reminder, Hans! And I didn’t even see that sneaky snake until you pointed him out.

      It must be the approaching holiday that has me finding feasty food in these recent images with Arizona #242 inspiring a craving for mashed potatoes for a start. And yes, more bubbly, thanks Ruth!

      Hans, I love the softness in your second to last and the burst of enegy in Flowering. I’ve not heard back from Ian yet, so maybe it’s not fixable (i.e., no way to have an alternate name for posting). Ah well!
