boo!


I got this little gem a couple of years ago. I was walking through some trinket store and her little head was bobbing. It cracked me up, so I filled out the adoption papers, (wrote a check) and now she comes out to visit every Halloween. Thank goodness I live with a professional photographer, he helped capture this moment.
There are a few houses that go all out for Halloween so I’ll post a few photos so you can see just how weird some of my neighbors are. We get a lot of trick-or-treaters, so here’s a word of advice, buy candy you don’t like, then you won’t be tempted to eat any. I’ve yet to find one Sweet husband doesn’t like. off to work!

  1. Oh I remember Little Grandpa and Little Grandma purchasing Horehound candy at Albertson’s, it was so gross! And then they would also purchase a bag of chicken bone candy, sort of like Baby Ruth only in minature. I purchased a bag of Smore’s, for Halloween, still some left (burp).
    And I have noticed that at work this year there is a HUGE outbreak of decorating the various departments. There is even a full blown witch with battery powered cackle hanging from the business office door. Thank God someone removed the battery! R

  2. Dennis- I think I’d better pass on the bet, he just might do it.

    Royce I always recall Halloween in Hooterville as cold. So if we had a groovy costume, no one could see it. Had to do the houses that had BIG size candy bars, the houses on main street.

    Gale-He LOVES Fig Newtons. Frankly I haven’t found a food he doesnt’ like. Wish I weren’t so picky, sure would make it easier to make dinner. Now you and Rocky can match, send a pic? moo!

  3. We have lived in our home for almost 10 years and in that time we have had ONE little goblin on halloween and that was 9 years ago. The problem is that we live in the country in a neighborhood of 10 and 20 acre lots. The kids would rather go into town to all the big developments.
    So what I am trying to say is I always buy the good stuff because there is much more for me…….

    And I love Bit O Honey’s.

  4. I like the idea of a professional photog for the blog. 🙂

    Last year I bought goldfish crackers and cheetos in little fun sized bags and then a humongous bag of tootsie rolls. I hate all that stuff. Problem is so do trick-or-treaters. One polite little fireman said, “Oh. No thank you.” Funniest halloween moment ever!

  5. some additional youthful Halloween memories. Home made candies. Grandma Horn’s recipe for Hawaian (spelling??) Penuche which consisted of brown sugar, butter, pinch of salt, boil to soft ball stage, add crushed walnuts and pineapple tidbits, pour out and let set. My job was to lick the Paul Revere pan. Yum!

  6. Chocolate-covered ants or roasted cow farts. Think about those two things and try to eat some candy … dare you!
