Spooky Holiday Past

One of my favorite holidays as a kid .. and okay as a grownup, too was Halloween. I was even ambitious enough to make costumes for the kids.

This is 1985 and younger witchy daughter on left and older bumble bee daughter on right.

Zip ahead a few years and again younger daughter on left and older daughter on right! While I can take credit for some of OD's costume, I take no credit for YD's.

Pardon Me Boys ...

DH and I had the opportunity to spend a couple of freebie nights somewhere. We chose ...

Not just for their idea of what art is -- wouldn't you like a swig from the bottle this corkscrew opened?

But also because of some of the unique sculptures around the city, not just in the Bluff View Art District. The fountain below is at the Chattanooga Public Library. It appeals to the former library worker in me.

And don't forget the MoonPie. Chattanooga is the home of the MoonPie. They are even introducing new flavors! Chocolate is still my favorite.

The Best Thing About Autumn

It must be the color! These two are from my own front yard.

This one was taken from a scenic overlook outside of Chattanooga. Pretty as a postcard!
