Halloween Memories or Just Evil and Wicked Thoughts?

While I was at Samford attending the Institute for Genealogical and Historical Research in June, my instructor, Lloyd Bockstruck revealed to the class that "he had evil thoughts" [note - this quote is taken way, way, far away out of context, but I needed an opening for this article and it's all I got right now] Well, I have to tell you that I was certainly relieved to hear that I wasn't the only one.

Over at Genea-Musings, Randy Seaver is hosting the
Saturday Night Genealogy Fun -the Halloween edition. He challenges us to think about our most memorable Hallowe'en - was it when you were a child (candy, games, carnivals), a teenager (tricks and treats), or an adult (perhaps a party)?

Reading Mr. Saturday Night's memory of tricking the pastor of his church tells me that (along with Mr. Bockstruck) I am in good company when it comes to wickedness.

I have only a few memorable Halloween moments that remain near and dear to me. Like the time my ex-husband decided to attend his company Halloween party dressed as a Urine Sample. However, being the generous and giving kind of person that I am, instead of boring you with my life I present some of the most amusing costumes I have seen this year.

And people ask me where my head is

A little deviled egg

This one is for Sista Donner

This is why your parents tell you the Tooth Fairy isn't real


  1. Sheri,
    Thanks for the laughs! But where is your costume?

  2. I think Sheri wears her costume on her blog - Little Egypt, the belly-dancer.

    It's probably too cold to go out trick or treating in Stockton tonight - she'd have goose bumps on her, um, you know.

    Arms. Belly button. Thighs.

    Trick or treat! -- Randy

  3. Ha Ha Ha - Now I've peed my pants. Do you suppose I could have gone Trick or Peeing ... Treating as, say, Depends? This was wickedly funny. No wonder I love your blog!

  4. Kathryn - Randy is right, I am wearing my costume. But Seaver I am a "Genie-ologist" not Little Egypt. And my bumps . . .well never you mind about my bumps LOL.

    Cindy - I am so glad I can make you laugh, sorry about the pee.
