Wishing y'all creepy thrills and curdling chills this Halloween!

Tom Wms.:

Last year I went Trick or Treating with my grandkids. It didn’t go well at all.

I wanted to be original, but it’s hard to find a costume that wouldn’t dislodge my hairpiece. So, I was the only Power Ranger in the neighborhood with a walker.

The first place we went, I knocked on the door and yelled, “Trick or.....” I couldn’t remeber the rest.

After about 20 minutes, I had to go home to pee and then got confused and knocked on my own door.

I thought since I was going to retrace my steps, I would change my costume and try for more treats.

So I removed my teeth to change my appearance. One smart alleck said, “Great Boris Karloff mask”.

I had to ask for soft high fiber candy only, so people gave me popcorn balls.

At one house, a woman dropped a carmel apple in my bag, and I lost my balance and fell over.

By the end of the night, I had a two Three Musketeer candy bars, four popcorn balls, one caramel apple, sore feet, and a bag full of restraining orders. I won’t be going out for Halloween this year.


Yep, Ms Prescott, 3rd grade English teacher. Always knew she was a witch!

Hey G

She was married to Percy Bysshe Shelley, a well-respected Romantic poet. I'm sure they were meant for each other.

John Cox:

That last message belongs with the Frankenstein post.
