Halloween candy. Brain candy?

That’s the guilty pleasure called Facebook.

Although, today’s visit provided great inspiration.

Good friend Barbara Scafferi posted a lovely picture from her past:

She had been a member of the “Gas Regulator” bowling team.

Shame on me. I had to ask:

Whose gas were you regulating?

I imagined Tums or Rolaids as corporate sponsors.

Barbara replied (I’m guessing straight-faced and blush-free) with:

“If it flows through pipes anywhere in the world….it’s FISHER’S”

Ah…Fisher Governor. Local industrial giant manufacturing pipes and valves.

That works, too.

Writer’s block? Look around. Two words can change everything.
