A Special Edition: Halloween 2016, 11 Days and Counting

My apologies for the late post today. I found this post languishing in the land of Drafts. I guess I’ve been a bit distracted this week. We’ve had visitors from Pennsylvania, Colorado, Wyoming, and Indiana so far this week and friends from Texas arrive tomorrow.

Only 11 days left until Halloween!!!! Can’t you feel the excitement.

Rain, rain, rain. Up to an inch a day since last week. Bless my neighbors for calling me if one of our tombstones takes a tumble during the day.

Today’s post is about the special requests we received from our neighbors. So without further ado, neighbors, these are for you. You know who you are.

Because we're celebrating life, love and family this month.

Because we’re celebrating life, love, and family this month.

We have a new family with no less than seven children. This one’s for you.

Even frogs are California Dreamin'.

To my neighbor who pointed out the typo on our Wicked Witch of the West tombstone:

Like the sign says, "Watch your step".

Like the sign says, “Watch your step”.

And this one’s for me. All summer long I’ve battled slugs in my garden—and lost. Oh Cory’s where art thou?

How can you beat a slug with a flag?

Until next week.







About Fannie Cranium

Writing since she could first hold a pen, Tracy Perkins formed her alter ego, "Fannie Cranium" at the suggestion of her husband. Tracy understands smiling makes people wonder what she’s been up to.

    I like the Dia De Los Muertos tombstone the best! Our friend Ralph passed on that day a few years back, doing what he loved–selling his beautiful Dia De Los Muertos folk art at a gallery in Bellingham. How did we celebrate his life after his funeral? We went to Los Straitjackets, of course! Full circle.

    I have to go with Kermit; he’s my favorite musician.
