Yesterday while taking a walk in the snow, I paused at Gustav the Killer Goose's pen to snap this photo. He was none too pleased that a person was
Gustav (pronounced Goose-tov) was named courtesy of a Name That Goose Contest here on this blog, because that's the sort of high-quality entertainment you can expect here on any given day.
Click here for background on that contest and a shot of Gustav on the John Deere tractor. You can't make this stuff up, folks. Reality TV producers? I could keep you in business for decades.
Anyway, because the Name that Goose Contest was so successful, we need to have a Name that Ghost Contest, because that's the natural progression for contests. You start with a goose and you move to a ghost. It's right there in the Welcome to Mathews manual, in the chapter entitled Eccentric, but in a Good Way.
Mathews Mark is the caretaker of a very old, beautiful house that came with a wood stove, some gorgeous antique furniture and a ghost. Click here for background on his house.
Mark has several stories of encounters with his roommate and has decided it's time to give the ghost a name.
So here is today's challenge:
1. What name would you give this ghost if it is a female?
2. What would you name a male ghost?
4. Do you think the ghost inhabiting Mathews Mark's house is male or female?
5. Is Gustav, pictured below, hissing because he's tired of being confined in a pen that looks like a crab pot or is he just naturally ill-tempered?
