Ghoulish Greetings........

Something to consider for
Halloween Evening......a little story...

Many years ago, these two silly people decided despite their age,
Halloween was for dressing up and enjoying the evening!

Then later in their lives, they discovered that New Orleans was THE place to be
for Halloween.....stopping by LaFittes Blacksmith Shoppe Tavern......

Or just hanging on the corner of Bourbon Street
until dusk begins to's all good.....
lots of *spirits* in the air there!

You might find a zombie willing to pose before
an evening in the mayhem of the French Quarter's
Streets, rife with costumes, parades and revelry......

.....Or maybe run into this *gentleman* in the courtyard on your way out.......
(it's not Mike Ness, but close!)
Better give him a tip to pass by.......  ;-)

Need a driver to see the sites?
What better than a Devil-Girl in a Flame Mobile????
The cost is minimal.....not money.....something a bit
more personal.....a bit more like, your soul?
Or get ready for a bit of VooDoo with her
doll under the belt, she's ready for business!

The only stop for this macabre taxi is the crypt of Marie LaVeau,
the VooDoo Queen of The Quarter.
Buried in St. Louis #1 Cemetary, go
lay your offering down humbly and mark three X's
made with brick on the tomb;
perhaps your wish will be granted!

And here's a wish from two Fiends.......(oh,what
that couple at the top turned into! what NOLA did to them!).....

...May the Spirits of the Night find you
and keep you company!
Happy Hauntings Kiddies!

You're a hoot, lady!! Love the devil and her taxi...wonderful!! Tonight, we take a drive down the street, across the stateline into NM where we'll have our Zombie meal of beef ribs, Fred Flintstone style, and brisket. It's our once a year ritual since we stopped giving out candy...hardly anymore kids in the 'hood....just us old farts, some older, some, not so!! LOL

It's off to Zumba...ugh! Have a great evening and will be talking soon.

Love ya,

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

The Zombie meal sounds pretty good to me! :-)

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hey Robin,

Mostly I have been subjected to hubby's Halloween Hootenanny; a Rob Zombie mix which is quite fun!
So file your fangs and rat your hair, there's chilling music in the air!


Bella Sinclair said...

Hahahaha, you two are TOO MUCH FUN! Happy Halloween! Now go out and make some mischief!

Janine said...

Dear Ann,
these dresses are spectacular.
I loove you as a skeletton.
I should try that costume maybe it makes me look slender( hi hi)
Happy Halloween and a gorgeous night to you

Jan said...

What a ride those two have been on through the years! Fun times. More to come, what will they morph into next?

Magpie's Mumblings said...

Never mind, if the guys in the white coats come, they're only dressed up for Hallowed-ween and not the real thing! At least I hope they're not!

Glenn Stenson said...

I'm afraid to knock on those eccentrics' door.

Hi Anne.
What a fun walk through Halloweens past! You look like you enjoyed every minute. It is a fun time of the year. Great photos to remember those fun times.
I have been concentrating on the Day of the Dead this year ~ digesting more information about it and participating in Dia de Bloglandia.
Also, had to get a new computer ~ Windows 7 very different from my Vista. Learning.....
Enjoyed this post a lot!
