News from Possum Waller

I was on the porch about twilight when I saw this blur on a bike
sail by yelling loudly "hep me hep me" I figured it was Superman, and it
was, out riding his bike and getting an early start on Halloween, all I
could see was like a black blob, then I heard the crash and splash. I
up and wandered down the road to the creek ansd sure enough Superman
was splashing around in the water. Seems he dressed up like the Headless
Horseman and his costume got a bit tangled up and he couldn't see out
of his eye holes, thus the "hep me" I heard. Special Edna, Superman's
girlfriend came running up and jumped in to haul him out. He was a bit
wet but managed to get head free as he was sputtering, I toly ya to hep
me!. Well he needs some help but he's ok for now. All I can say his just
"bless his heart".
