Our World Tuesday: No Crows Need Apply

When the cattails grow whiskers,
From October 22, 2011
I know the season of scaring crows and small children is upon us.
From October 22, 2011
The junior docents at the Glebe House in Woodbury put their talents to work to draw customers to the living haunted history tour of the house and the local ancient graveyard.  Docents lead the unsuspecting on a walk through a haunted graveyard in which the junior docents pop up from their graves to tell the unsavory but very interesting history of our homely village.

I think the fellow above actually gave a presentation at last year's tour.  This silvery, bearded gent was in the room of the house where funerals took place.  He was very impatient with Woodburians who did not know their own history.  Perhaps his disgust in us got the best of him.
From October 22, 2011
Despite his pedantic ways, we managed to laugh and to enjoy and to come back for another year of taking pictures of the kids' creative work even if we didn't take the tour.

  5. Here is something few people know. I hate Halloween. I feel like a crabby old lady but when I was about 6 I had an incident that I look back on and call it "The Halloween Trauma". Long story so to make it short someone scared me and I never recovered. I have hated Halloween ever since. Even at 40 I still sit home waiting for the night to be over because the loud screechers freak me out.
    There, I told you. *hangs head in shame*

  10. Halloween as a celebration is gaining hold even in Scandinavia, which pleases me as I love it.;) I guess I love best the pumpkin decorations and Jack-o-lanterns.;))
    Happy Halloween dear Sandy.;)

  20. That looks like lots of fun. I love Halloween, it is the perfect Holiday. The weather is mild, you don't have to buy gifts for people, and nobody feels sorry for you if you have to celebrate Halloween by yourself.

  29. The scarecrows in the second and last pictures are cute, don't care for the crabby skeleton in the brown hat though.
    Scarecrow festivals have been taking off over here for a few years now, but usually in late Spring, early summertime.
