Fun With Friends & Family 2004

What is a vampires favourite type of ship? A blood vessel.

Halloween 2004

We all gather again for another serious pumpkin carving activity. Great fun with family and friends. After it's over, we gead out for dinner locally.

A Quote To Remember -
Men say, that in this midnight hour,
The disembodied have power
To wander as it liketh them,
By wizard oak and fairy stream,—
Through still and solemn places,
And by old walls and tombs, to dream,
With pale, cold, mournful faces....
~William Motherwell, "Midnight and Moonshine"

A Quote To Remember -
On Halloween, what bothers some
About these witches, is how come
In sailing, through the air, like bats
They never seem, to lose their hats?

Hitchhiking owls, as we have seen,
Ride nicely on this queer machine...
Another thing: if brooms can fly,
Do witches keep them handy-by?

~David McCord (1897–1997), "Witch's Broom Notes"
