Halloween 2023

 This evening the family came over, and I had fixed up a little tablescape with goodies.



Jazz & Dara were Little Bo Peep and Barbie.


Here is the family as they were leaving.


Here I am with our son and the granddaughters.


And here I am with Phil in the photo.

DraCOWla

 Meet:


The Big Cow has finally got his Halloween costume all sorted and is ready for some action!

It dreams of tomorrow When it will soar again Happy and hopeful.


I asked A.I. to write a poem about a bird at sunset. This is what it came up with.

And after dark. Plus the spider web is all lit up.




They keep changing it and putting more stuff out. Every time we pass it, there is some little difference.

 Our Dollar General store moved into a new building this year, and it is larger and has a fancy layout. Here are a few of the spring things ...
