THE MAGIC BROOM AND OTHER HALLOWEEN CHATTER

This is a magic broom. It was brought from our neighbor's house to poke into the tree to, hopefully, retrieve the football the broom owner's son and his two friends threw up there. One poke and the tree burped two footballs. I took the broom over to the owners house after waiting to see if it would fly there by itself and while there I took a picture of their Jack-O-Lanterns. Phil and I looked at the ice cream lid and saw a ghost and, at the bottom, a goblin. Not as impressive as a weeping Madonna statue, is it? But still. A ghost and a goblin.

I wonder if I could sell it on ebay for a thousand dollars. Too late, it's in the garbage.

And then, to round out our exciting evening we watched to see who had the heaviest pumpkin in Cooperstown, New York. The winner, One thousand two hundred some odd pounds.

I tell you, our life is just one round of excitement after another around here. Try to keep up.

Sounds like your life is more exciting than mine, I was feeling I was overweight and should try to do something about it, but that pumpkin puts everything in perspective for me now so all is good :)

I think the ghost and gobblin on the ice cream lid was pretty impressive, and so creative of you to see it, I'll have to look at my ice cream lids more.
