Welcome Jan, Beverly, Duke and anybody I may have missed due to encroaching senility. I seem to be falling behind and have forgotten who I've already welcomed to the madhouse and yes, the inmates are definitely running the asylum. But hey, that only adds to fun!
Semper Fidelis! Semper Familia!

         Good Morning! I wasn't sure which category to post general conversations in so, here I am. I just wanted to wish everyone a great Halloween, this is one of my favorite times of year as I love Ghost Hunting! Everything seems to come together this time of year. My greatest dream is to one day go to Scotland to do a bit of hunting, but you should be careful what you wish for ,huh? I hope everyone has a great holiday.  Bev

Thanks Bev.

I enjoy Holloween too, although I way to old to trick-or-treat

I always loved making costumes and decorating. When I was a library director, we turned the library into a Haunted House every year. The Lioness ran a non-scary room for the little kids and the others came through the haunted house. We had some great props and actors.....chain saws, Frankenstein's monster and his creator, Dracula, witches...... we moved the book shelves and covered them with black plastic. Then we had people on top with fishing rods and strands of fishing line that they would bob down in front of people's faces ....others would swoop 'bats' in and out of the tombstones outside with fly rods....we'd cut slits in the black plastic and walk through the aisles right in front of people carrying a battery candle and through a corresponding slit on the other side. We had light and we could see the slits but the visitors couldn't and 'people' would just materialize in front of them and then be gone.  It was great fun. The town organizations and businesses donated candy, ice cream, brownies, etc. and the library was the draw every year and every year we made it different. I do miss it!

I also remember painting haunted houses, black cats, bats, ghosts, etc. on our daughters' fingernails a day or so before Halloween so they could wear them to school. This was before you could buy stickers!

That sounds like a lot of fun Mary.  Bet you do miss that.  Living out in the country like us I bet you don't get any Trick or Treaters.

Graham, you truly are incorrigible!

You're right, Barbara - we've never had a trick or treater here. Not only do we live 4 miles from the nearest town (not city!), but we're on the top of a hill, too!  I don't even want to walk up that hill with the mail, let alone for a candy bar! Well....maybe a couple of candy bars.......... ;D  I really don't know what the country kids do - whether they go on into Cookeville to some organized events or what?? I suppose they are probably driven around to the neighbors...it's too far to hoof it for little ones.

Saves money Mary, not having Trick or Treaters.   ;D  You're closer to a town than we are.  It's 12 miles to the nearest town and 15 miles the other way to another town for us, but I love country living.  :D
