It's Halloween!!!

Happy Halloween everyone!! This day is such a fun holiday. With all the pumpkin carvings and little kiddies dressing up. Of course we can't forget about all the great candy :) The ghost stories. Tales of witches, vampires, werewolves and every other creature.

My son has decided to be a Zombie for Halloween. I shall take a pic after he's all dolled up, lol and post it along with my six sentences on Sunday.

I'm going to tell you all my favorite ghost story. It's actually my own personal experience, and I may have already told it once before, but's Halloween.

When I was a teen, I had my best friend sleep over one night. My niece (who might as well been my sister as we are so close in age) had one of her friends over also. The four of us went to my bedroom and were bored. So, I pulled out a Ouija board (trust me when I say unless you know what you doing, you probably shouldn't play around with one of these.). My bestie and I have done this several times in the past with no earth-shattering consequences. My mother's house was built in the 1860s and I knew it was haunted. So we wanted to find out what had been there before the farmhouse. We all sat on the floor in the middle of my bedroom. Now, I don't remember exactly what was said, but whatever question that had been asked made one spirit a tad upset. (My nightstand sat in the corner flush up against the wall with my bed up against the nightstand. I had a bible sitting on my nightstand. No lamp. The only light was one above...a single bulb with a string that I had to stand on my tippy toes to reach.) The light in my room suddenly went out and at the same exact time, we heard something go flying across the room and thump up against my TV. Freaked us out so bad we somehow felt our way down the stairs (hallway light went out also) and ran for my Dad. We asked him if the lights went off down there, and he looked at us as if we grew dragon heads! We peeked back toward the hallway and that light along with my bedroom light was back on. Then we searched for the noise thumper. It was the bible. Needless to say, we never played with that board ever again.

And speaking of ghosts, The Swan Cove Murders have two! Neither can let go until the real killer is caught. And in the meantime, the accused ghost, Daemon, just wants his name cleared. The other ghost, Earl, just wants his former fiance safe and sound. Daemon reeks havoc with Lena Dixon, my spirit writing heroine. And Earl scares the heck out of his brother (the skeptic), Nicholas Hunter. So, if you haven't read it yet, now is your chance. Click here :)

Have a safe and spooktacular Halloween!
