Goin' Ghosting!


The children are filled with excitement and anticipation. The candy bags are all labeled and loaded in the mini-van. Mom needs a drink, but can't because she is driving. The stage is set... Tonight-WE GHOST!

For those of you not familiar with this ritual, it's a Halloween variation on "Ring and Run" only instead of a flaming bag of dog shit-we leave a nice little bag of candy on the doorstep.

Hopefully we will complete our assignment without any major injuries. Friends have reported casualties during their ghosting missions, most resulting from falls down stairs and tripping over pumpkins. Wish us luck as we spread Halloween cheer throughout our community.

When the sun sets-we fly!!!!

"There are three things I have learned never to discuss with people: religion, politics and the Great Pumpkin."

So fun! This is about the only tradition I LOVE about Halloween.

Nice. I have never heard of that but perhaps we will make tomorrow night a ghosting night. Tonight we went trick or treating at the nearby horse stables...I'm not kidding. All the horses were dressed up and giving out candy. Of course, what farm trip would be complete without a trick to the cow barn too. It was quite a site. Chicken, Wordgirl and Spidey all dressed up spooking the farm animals. Only in our fine state!

We BOO! here...suburban MLM version of We Ghost.

I can't believe Halloween is two days away. That means I start posting daily and novel writing the day after. And I move four days later. And I turn 42 on moving day. And and and and and and...
