My friend Anna told me about the secret Cadaver Society at Washington & Lee University. In her words, "They spray paint skulls all over campus - - and we allow it because they also contribute a ton of money anonymously to different university projects. No one knows who the members are or how they are selected - - but I find skulls on kids cars, the football field, buildings, etc."

That "wolfy" pic looks like an evil schipperke... We've had 3... who am I kidding? All schipperkes are evil.

The "card by L&D Dillon" is also the cover art for the edition I own of Ray Bradbury's novel The Halloween Tree, which I read every Halloween!
