Spooky Halloween

Halloween will soon be here. It’s a day that I never really enjoyed that much. Well, try second thought, troche I did as a young child. What child could resist getting all that candy! I loved it when my children were young. Buying their costumes and dressing them. I am not a sewer, and was always so impressed with mothers that made such beautiful handmade costumes for their children. On Halloween eve, I always planned an early dinner, and hurried to clean up before the trick or treaters rang the door bell. Melissa would get so excited. “I’ll get it!”, she would say, and grab the candy along the way. I can remember when Billy would return with his bag, just chock full of all kinds of candy bars, homemade cookies and sometimes, even an apple taffy!! Those are such fond memories from, what seems like a long time ago, and it really was.
About 4 years ago, my husband and I drove to Marathon, FL., to meet up with some friends for a little vacation. Along the way, we stopped at Charleston, S.C., one of my favorite places to visit. Because Halloween is fast approaching, I thought I would share some photos I took in one of their old cemetaries. They are not the best photos, they were taken with my old camera. These tombstones are from the mid 18th century, and are such beautiful works of art. I loved walking among them, and thinking about the people that once walked this earth, all forgotten now, as though they never exhisted. Sorry if I am sounding a bit goulish, but after all, it is almost Halloween. Boo!!
