A Special Edition: Halloween Countdown–Eight Days

Every graveyard has a story to tell, ours has more than one.

The Moon Has  Eyes

T’was eight days before Halloween, and all through the graveyard, every creature was stirring, even the bard.

Powerful Trouble

All the candles were lain on the table with care, in hopes Halloween soon would be there.

Candle Staging for Halloween
I, in my witch’s hat, and George Gnome with his cat, all snuggled in for our eternal nap.

George and Boots the Cat

When up on the coffin lid arose such a clatter, I flew with my broom to see what was the matter.


When what to our rotting eyes should appear, but Killer Bees Espresso serving pipe cleaner reindeer.

No special edition is complete without music, let’s pump up the volume in the graveyard. MARRS with Pump Up the Volume. Yes, we listened to this one year ago.

Until next week. . .

    you so crack me up! Great to hear the song again. Happy countdown week 🙂


    • Halloween only comes once a year. I love to celebrate the enchantment and create memories for the kids in my neighborhood.

      And as one of my friends recently pointed out to me, perhaps one of them will do the same thing when they grow up. 🙂

    I have a feeling the Sat Am cleanup will not be so swift.
