Devil’s Day Surprise!

I woke extremely ill and ended up in the ER of all days, “Devil’s Day.”  Indeed it was for me body “tricking” me and no treats to boot.  Praying & believing that everything has a blessed from God outcome.

I am posting this old work from 2001 from a site I used to have.

Memories from the Halloween’s I remember growing up.  So sad my relatives never took one picture of this fun time in our lives.

Please click on each page to enlarge to read.

Enjoy the fun little Halloween Song I wrote as a young mother for my first-born who absolutely loves this holiday.  It really has something when it’s placed to music.  Not so much when you just read it so I made it a little more interesting.

Personally I no longer celebrate it for various reasons.  I still like pumpkin and harvest decor though.  Love this time of year, normally.

 

 

 

 

Cemeteries in Black and White

Black & white photography really does give a certain “mood” to prints.

It especially gives a cemetery that added “cold as stone” feel.

My best friend took this picture of me many years ago pretending to be “Angelique Collins” from the old Dark Shadows series. We loved that show. Ironically I find I have a number of grandmothers on my French side by that very name, “Angelique!” Had I known this sooner I would have insisted my parents change my name. As you can see I lightened my hair so I could resemble her. (the picture is badly deteriorating and yes, that is a crystal ball!)
Some of my ancestors were burned as witches and I inherited it.

Psych!

Psycho!

As a child I lived near one of the oldest graveyards in the area with stones from the 1700’s at least.  A few of us used to go up there to read them.  Thanks to the television program I watched as a young teen, Dark Shadows, I thought cemeteries were very cool.  Ghosts anyone?

I had a very cool Halloween song that I might have shared before.  Starts with:

Jack ‘O Lanterns big black cats and witches that fly in the sky!

I'll get you my pretty, and your little guns too! (hope I don't get deleted)

Halloween also led us straight into the other holidays later on.  Used to be we kept the Halloween harvesty feeling way past Thanksgiving and I loved that.  I remember when Christmas didn’t really start til a week or two before Christmas.  Again, that was over 50 years ago and I don’t think that stores were even open on Sundays.  I think they started doing that in the late 60’s, some of them.  I love autumn!  It’s just a great time of year for so many reasons.
