Well here is a picture of the stuffed witch. I have about 3 to 4 layers
under all this as it was going to be in the 40's by 6pm when the park opened
the gates to the tennis courts. We have approx 20 people from the park board
alone and then different business's set up too to give out treats. There are
two people to a 4 ft table with a full sized storage tub full of candy. Last
night mine were Milky Ways. My sister in law had Baby Ruths and Butterfingers.
Its not just hard candy, all is in boxes or wrapped so parents know its all safe.
The Chick Filet cow is there, Officer McGruff, there were also some other stuffed
dogs that were as warm as me. Of all the park people, I am the only one that
dresses for the occassion....LOL, if I can't have fun then its not worth doing it.

Sorry about the absence....We had to make a quick trip to MI to check on some older family
members before the snow flies heavy in the Upper Peninsula of MI. We did run into snow on the
way up, but there is always one snow before Halloween so nothing new there. On our way home
this week we stopped in lower MI at Tony's in Birch Run MI. This is why there are long lines to
get into this truck stop type resturant in the summer months. Its also across from a very huge
complex of outlets as its a central lower MI area. Yes, there is a full pound of bacon on each
of these BLT's. Homeade bread to die for too. We don't stop here very often, but when we do, we
usually get this sandwich. We bring more then a pound home and I make bean soup out of the leftovers.
This way nothing is wasted. Love to see the look on first timers when they see what you have on
your plate on the way to their tables....its hilarious. Ok, off to get my witchie poo costume on
for giving candy out in our Central Park downtown. I will post a picture tomorrow, that is if I don't
break the camera, not kidding either....
