TBT and Halloween

I haven’t been to the blogosphere for a while but today I wanted to observe Throwback Thursday and Halloween … double duty, if you will.

These images are ones I took a few years back in Tucson. Our neighbor was a single Dad of three and each year him and the kids would go all out for Halloween. Dad would take the kids shopping and they got to choose the decorations they wanted. Then it was their job to do the decorating. I think the oldest was only 11 and he was definitely the director of their endeavors. Such cool kids!!!

I always loved to watch the magic unfold and each day as I would walk the dogs, I got to see the evolution of their front yard. They would ask me what I thought and I always gave them a round of applause for what they had done. And rightly so. It was well deserved.

Theirs was the best house on the street. I hope they’re still bringing Halloween enjoyment to the neighborhood.

Trick or Treat! Be good and be safe. Namaste’

All Things Autumn and Halloween

OK, folks, between now and Oct. 31, which is Halloween and my dear departed Dad’s birthday, my posts will be either whimsical Halloween, ghoulish or all about Autumn, which is my favorite season.  Stay tuned.  Today’s photo is of a decoration I have on the door.  Nothing ghoulish about this one, but just wait.  Namaste’

Meet My New Friend

Hello!  Meet my new friend … Weechy.  It’s not often I make a new friend but lo! and behold, there she was in all her icky glory when we went to Home Depot.  She’s actually a life-size version, selling for $99.00.  Wow!  I love Halloween decorations but I think I’ll stick to those paper bats and spider webs.  And or course, carving a real pumpkin.

Halloween is right around the corner.  Namaste’
