Friday 55

So did you write something spooktacular or just write a story in 55 words?  Either way, make sure you share with the G-man.

“Did you see them?” he asked, voice quaking.


“What?”

“The eyes.  
 Glowing eyes!  
 I came home, 
the house was dark and…
we’re haunted!”

“Yes,” Jen agreed quietly.  
 “We have ghosts.”

  Stepping forward, 
she dodged his attempt to slow her down.

“Been here for a month.   
Every  October.  
 For 17 years,” she grinned, 
flipping on the lights…





 Happy Halloween from me and my ghosts on the dining room table.

"The Road Less Traveled" has been included in the Sites To See for this week. I hope this helps to point many new visitors in your direction.

Halloween, 'All Hallow's Eve', the day before 'All Hallow's Day'. On that day, 1st November, folk here used to put a candle in the window in memory of those who have gone before us. I remember being allowed to light the candle as a kid. The tradition is slowly being revived here. And though I am not religious I think it is a lovely tradition, and have been putting my candle in the window for the past few years and encourage others to do likewise.

Have a great weekend my friend. :¬)

Thanks Jerry!

Map: I LIKE that idea! I use to light a candle to place under my "ghost guys" but then switched over to an electric light. But I will light a real one on Nov. 1st. :)

Really cute, hope. When I downsized and moved out of my rented home of 14 years at retirement, prior to my two lengthy India trips, I gave away all my Halloween paraphanalia - and most of my other belongings...just saved a few special things. My three sons couldn't believe I finally did it. When I finally quit living between India and renting a room from a friend, I'll unpack in a little small place...probably when my ten years visa expires...I'll be 78 then!!!

Oh! You could fool a lot of people with that on the table in the dark. Glowing eyes around here in the dark too often. Happy Halloween!
