The last day of October and on to 'dreary' November... somewhat rescued by my Birthday on the 9th and then Thanksgiving.

Instead of Halloween decorations, I decorate with a Harvest theme. Then everything can stay up until the Christmas decorations are lovingly unpacked and carefully placed here and there and everywhere. This will be a special Christmas as we're in our new 'old' home!!

This is a photo from 1953 when my friend Susie (on the left) and I (with the crimson lips) had a joint Halloween party for a bunch of girlfriends. We had a 'rec room'... popular in that era... and it was perfect for parties which we had a lot of!! Ooooo... the good old days!!
Talk about nostalgia... this is a song we used to sing:
Oh... it's Halloween and gob-lins are about,
you can see them lurking in the gloom.
But a way up in the sky...
there's a witch a-swishing by...
with a big black cat a riding on her broom.
Take care!!
Of the cat a-riding on the witch's broom!

Have a fun day!!
