Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge: 2016 Week 42

Our house from the street. Spooky enough for you?
Our house from the street. Spooky enough for you?

It’s less than a week to Halloween. Not much happening at this end of town. We’re too far off the beaten path for wee ghosties and goblins. Besides, it would involve too much walking between houses … and it is a bit scary with no streetlights or sidewalks. It’s dark . There are creatures living in those woods.

A better choice?
A better choice?

Thus, in the years we’ve lived here, we’ve never had a trick-or-treat request.


When we lived in Boston, we would finally close the shop and turn off the light after we ran out of all 20 pounds of candy we’d bought. These days, we don’t buy any. Even when Kaity was living here, she went to town to get the goodies.


I hope you have your fangs packed and are ready to go for a howl, because it’s Halloween … soon!

The child's first Halloween?

As a reporter for Channel 7 in Boston for 31 years, I was witness to most of the major events affecting the region. I met a lot of people ... politicians, actors, moguls, criminals and many regular folks caught up in extraordinary situations. Sometimes, I write about the people I've met and places I've been. Sometimes, I write about life, my family, my dogs and me. Or what might otherwise be called Life.


  1. Halloween is not a Swiss thing. They tried to introduce it, probably for commercial reasons, but the population would not buy it. A shame in a way, it would be good photographic material. Even the few decorations you have would be worth it.

    1. Hi, Mrs. Swiss!! This is also the time of the year when they run all those horror films.
      “Frankenstein”, “Dracula”, “The Wolfman”, etc. I recently watched a reel turkey, “Frankenstein Created Woman”. ‘Orrible but I loved the cleavage on the deranged ladies.


  2. I’ve only ever had 2 Halloween visitors and when I opened the door one of them ran away 🙂
    In my village I see the kids go past with their parents but I think they go to the specific houses of their school friends. It’s not such a big thing here.
