It's Halloween!

Today I'll be decorating my front porch and yard for the first time since 2008. I went all out that year and then the next year I went to New Orleans and then last year we were at the baseball game. I carved my pumpkin today. I think it looks better in person:
I spent most of Sunday afternoon finding things and organizing things to have them ready. I mean it's been three years. I'm doing a few new things this year and some of the old and I will have lots of pictures in a few days.
So while I was running around doing all this stuff, Barney came in the house and was acting all nuts like he was on a bad acid trip. He went under the daybed in the library and was howling like a loon and My Sweetie went in there to "talk him down." He was finally able to pull him out from under the bed to do a full body check (a "cat scan" if you will) which he always does when Barney acts oddly. You know, because he's an indoor/outdoor cat so he checks for injuries. Well he was perfectly fine and even started purring but then went right back under the daybed.
My Sweetie has a theory. He said, "I think it's the front door. It even scares me." It's this:

You shoulda fed that neighbor when he came begging for food three years ago. His plastered ghost haunts you yet, there on the front door.

It was a fun and spooky Halloween fer sure! That spider was a nice touch to your jack-o-lantern, and your house was the scariest on the block! Boo!

that spider is horrific. I am going to have nightmares now.
(maybe I'll need a body check from your sweetie to calm me down?)
