Full and bright

I photographed these Halloween decorations at a North Carolina shop. BOO! September 2013

It’s Halloween! It`s Halloween!
The moon is full and bright
And we shall see what can’t be seen
on any other night.        — Jack Prelutsky

I hope your evening is filled with delightful sights, sounds and tastes, even if only in your childhood memories!

Grady wishes everyone a HAPPY HALLOWEEN! And if you watch the video below, you can see him practice his lion roar (even though he doesn’t like to wear the mane headgear that came with the costume PaPa bought him…)

Merry October!

This post was first published seven years ago today. The original post, comments and photo are linked, along with two other related posts, below. These links to related posts, and their thumbnail photos, do not appear in the blog feed; they are only visible when viewing the individual posts by clicking on each one. I have no idea why, nor do I know how they choose the related posts. That’s just the way WordPress does things.


  1. That’s an advisable lion!
    The Halloween display in your photo reminds me of Casper, the Friendly Ghost. Somehow, we’re able to “recognize” him, even though he really has no notable features. It’s almost like”recognizing” a smiley face. That must have been a bit of a challenge for his artists.

    • I used to love watching Casper, although I suspected he was dreamed up by some well-meaning grownup who wanted to assuage childish fears. Now he seems kind of corny, like Barney the purple dinosaur (which I’m SO glad came along AFTER my sons were too old to like).

  2. What’s kind of sad is that I forgot it was Halloween until just now. My son is grown and gone and we live in an area that doesn’t get trick or treaters.

    • Yes, same here– by all accounts, my immediate neighborhood (mostly retirees and empty nesters) hardly participated at all in Halloween. I guess it is sad in a way, but I have enough happy memories of Halloweens past that I suppose I don’t really need any new ones.
