And now my readers, the final chapter. So ends Halloween for the year 2010. And I must say it was a pretty enjoyable holiday. I got to write some interesting stories, and I had the pleasure of reading quite a few exciting stories and OH! the photos and pictures that were shared! Along the way, I reconnected with a few old friends via "The Haunted Castle", and I made a few new friends, all aboard "The Scariest Halloween Movies Ever!". Did you check out the "witch" lineup on my sideboard? Each one had a story to tell, if I'd only had more time...ah, and maybe more talent?
But hey...we're moving right along-got plenty more work to do for November. And have I got some great ideas! I hope everyone had a safe Halloween and a smooth transition into the REAL autumn of the year. And thank you for those who did the BRAVE thing and voted on my poll, which is now closed. In the 1943 movie, "Frankenstein Meets the Wolfman", Lon Chaney, Jr. played the wolfman. There were two correct votes. My husband, of course, had to be the funny guy and vote for "Wolfman Jack", because he always liked him. So that's ok! I think a lot of us liked "Wolman Jack"-I know we miss him. And Michael J. Fox? He played the best "teen wolf" ever! Love that boy!
And now, I do have some pictures to share. We had our grandson Shawn with us for Halloween, and we celebrated his 2nd Birthday too. My son Rusty, who is Shawn's dad, and I took him on a "trick or treat" hunt in our neighborhood, and I believe he was a little "awestruck", but had fun! And Grandpa held vigil at the house and served our "trick or treaters" while we were prowling the street!
Here's Shawn working on Grandpa's riding mower-
actually I think he dropped his little car and was looking for it.
Shawn and dad heading for their first house with Grandma bringing up the tail end with the camera!
AAGGHHEE!!! This was more than he bargained for-he couldn't even look at WHAT opened this door!
OK-look at that little face! Shawn does a double-take here at this pretty little trick or treater!
Dad tells him, "We'll discuss that later!"
AH, safe at last...back at Grandma's and Grandpa's! Checking out his haul with a smirk on his face.
All in all, it was a productive nite of mystery and fun! And we are so blessed for getting to share this fun holiday with Shawn!
And now, dear readers, I would like to leave you with just a couple of lines from a poem written by Wallace Stevens, The Region November.
Deeplier, deeplier, loudlier, loudlier,
The trees are swaying, swaying, swaying.
au revoir, mes amies!
