Wanna have some fun? Buy one of these, open it up and
 then try to glue it onto the guy from yesterdays post.

That would be good.

Oh, when you're smiling, when you're smiling,
The whole world smiles with you, baby.
Yes, when you're laughing, when you're laughing,
Yes, the sun comes shining through.*

Wo. Look at who (or WHAT) is greeting us at Halloween
Express. This guy has got to be 8 feet tall. He is asking us
to "Please Ignore the mood breaking skylight."

Huzzah! Our 2022 Annual Halloween Crawl!
Halloween Express was our very first stop. It seems
to work out this way every year. Halloween Express
is kind of like a Spirit Store but with a little more edge
to it. Kind of.

Next up!
Our first Spirit Store of the season.

Spirit Store number two!

And then of course we had to stop at one of our very
favorite places, the Indian Store. Treasures and learning
are abundant in this place.

Well lookie here! Another Spirit Store!
As you can see, the shadows are getting long. We had been
Halloween Crawling for about 7 hours at this point and
we were getting a little tired and pretty hungry...

...soooooooo, we made a stop at Subway for some sandwiches.
They hit the spot tonight I will tell you what (I didn't get any
pictures of the Subway we visited so this picture from a previous
trip is a stand in). It was getting on to about 8 PM by the time
we finished eating and we decided that it was time to call it, so we
took our new treasures (oh yes, there are treasures) and headed
on back to The Ranch.

It was a great day and I will be posting more pictures throughout
the month of Spooktober.

The Halloween season ROCKS.

Question: What is this dusty old ashtray
out in the garage missing?

Answer: You are correct! A cigarette! That is because I don't
smoke. As a matter of fact, today is my Nineteenth Quit Smoking
Anniversary. I quit smoking cigarettes 19 years ago today.

I've said it before and I will say it again, the number one thing that
helped me during the days I first quit was this saying:

"The urge to smoke will pass whether you smoke or not."

Absolutely. This is absolutely TRUE.
And believe me, over time those
urges fade away. Gone.

This is a gift and I am thankful.

head on over to Knott's!

We are SO excited about our upcoming Annual Halloween
Crawl for 2022. The itinerary has been printed and coupons
are at the ready.

P.S. My Phive Day Phantasm Philm Phestival took place this
week and it was SICK!! Is "sick" still a thing? Anyway, if you have
never seen these movies, you are missing out! That's
The Tall Man up there. You don't mess with The Tall Man.
