Halloween 2007

It was the October 30th and we were all really tired. It is an effort to breathe here with all the smoke still in the air. It just tires you out. None of us felt like putting all the effort into our "Spooky House" decorating, but...

A couple of years ago I went back to Texas to help rebuild after hurricane Katrina hit them hard. I did not get to set up "Spooky House" that year and we got trick-or-treaters that sadly asked "where is Spooky House?"

I just think that there are a lot of displaced people here in our little area and those parents will not want to disappoint their children by not having Halloween. So it is up to the rest of us who don't live in those burned out communities to pick up the slack and put on a great show. And that is exactly what we did. We put on a "Spooky House" to rival the best! The front yard became a graveyard with 3ft to 5ft tombstones. Strobe lights, glowing bones, red and blue lighting, 3 fog machines, black lights, pumpkins, two sound effects areas, 3,000 watt lightening, scary clowns with chainsaws, and lots of great candy. All in all it was a great night!
