Settling the Bet HNT

There's not really much to say about my HNT today. It's time for Gucci to settle up her end of the Griz/Cat bet. I don't know exactly which of the pictures she'll be using, but she sent me a preview or two...

"Of apple-picking: I am overtired
Of the great harvest I myself desired.
There were ten thousand thousand fruit to touch,
Cherish in hand, lift down, and not let fall.
For all
That struck the earth,
No matter if not bruised or spiked with stubble,
Went surely to the cider-apple heap
As of no worth.
One can see what will trouble
This sleep of mine, whatever sleep it is.
Were he not gone,
The woodchuck could say whether it's like his
Long sleep, as I describe its coming on,
Or just some human sleep."

--Excerpt from "After Apple-Picking" by Robert Frost

This week's Mystery Guest will remain a mystery, though she's appeared here numerous times over the years. Come back often to look at her apples though!

Due to the week of holiday preparations, "...the Other HNT" is lower than normal with the numbers, but not in quality! Lots of breast portions, but I can't say the same about the legs or the wings. No lumpy potatoes, that's for sure! Be sure to stop by and check out your fellow HNTers! As always, it's NSFW!
Theme Alert! - As mentioned above, we'll still do the Christmas themes next month as follows:
  • Dec. 15th - Christmas Tree HNT - I want to see you half-nekkid with your Christmas tree. If you don't have a tree put up, then with any other Christmas decorations. If you don't celebrate Christmas, then you're off the hook. But the rest of you--I really want to see your Christmas trees!
  • Dec. 22nd - Three Christmas Wishes HNT - Perhaps the hardest theme of the year. Pick three individuals to send special Christmas wishes to. The hard part? Pick three people who are not necessarily someone you'll be sending a Christmas card to, or an e-card, or specifically contact at Christmas.Those people might expect something from you. No, send out your Christmas wishes to someone you've only lurked at, or to a newbie, or to someone whose HNTs and/or general blog posts have made some sort of impression. And post a picture of it, too! It can be serious or humorous or heartfelt or fantasy. Then contact that individual to let them know that they got one of your wishes. (For example, I remember that my very first year of this I wished for two bags of fairy dust for one person, a wish for another HNTer's husband's swimmers to impregnate her (she had a baby exactly 9 months later--I did good on that one!), and a big stick with nails for a third one to beat me with as I had somewhat trampled on our friendship. You can see this post here, or check out the other mid-December posts from my archives.) Good luck with this one. It's tougher than it sounds, so start thinking about it now!
  • Dec. 29th - Final HNT - This one is sort of self-explanatory. This will be your last official shot at doing HNT. Make it memorable. That doesn't imply stripping bare and letting it all hang out. Just make this one a good send-off.

Be sure to check out Ashly's and Evalee's links! Get your Christmas spirit into gear and help out! Both ventures have seen some good progress, and I know they both appreciate the help they've gotten, and any more that they can get.
Have a very Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Even those of you who celebrated it last month...!

Oh, and a shout-out to Boneman... the reason I haven't commented on your HNT is because I can't find it! your profile is turned off and you don't give us a link.

I'm guessing that mug is to catch the Gucci preview drool, yes?!

Fabulous shot once again, Os. Although, the gorgeous MG and her apples may just win out. Happy Thanksgiving... x

Sorry, Os, I have no idea who the Griz are... I don't even know if you're talking football, baseball, ice hockey or what!
But you do look fine in the picture :)

I am up with something for you to chortle over. HHNT x

I was out of town when I posted my HNT and was unable to leave a comment here. So, after the fact (and just for the formality), I am up.

I hope everyone had a nice holiday.
