Demons have frozen the Photo app on my iPhone and so I can’t share all the pictures I took of the ghouls and goblins in my neighborhood. But believe me, if I could show them all to you, you’d never be able to sleep at night!
Beware — The Ghost of the Golf Widow! We have at least one in the neighborhood. Above is Joe, the Ninety-Nine Hole Golfer. Apparently the Golf Widow heard that he left his wife every weekend to putt around with his old Frat buddies; left his wife to tote water to the kids’ soccer games alone and unaided; left his wife to weed the garden, do the shopping and deal with the temper tantrums. And so one day, Joe mysteriously dropped dead at age forty-five and now his bones stand as a stark reminder to all golf fiends.
Now if Clyde and Fergus actually played those banjos it might make for a very scary Farmer’s Market Pumpkin Patch, don’t you think? Nah.
As for haunted houses, we have only one probability. This bungalow which has been abandoned for about two years.
Unfortunately, I don’t think it was abandoned because it was haunted. I used to walk past when it was occupied and it seemed like a happy little place. I think the people who bought it (for a million dollars!) are probably waiting on … waiting on … waiting on building permits! Now that’s … scary!
Have a Happy Halloween!

All very scary!
Hi. Are you going out to trick-or-treat tonight?
Well, I only have one costume – crazy, old lady!
No bones about it, Joe is quite a looker. Mysteriously dropped dead at age forty-five, you say? Well bless his heart.
Ha – very punny! You don’t want to cross the Ghost of the Golf Widow! She has a long memory and know how to use a Nine Iron!
Joe – “You can have my golf club when you pry it from my cold dead hands.”
Joe’s wife – “Hold my beer”
Haha! So true!
Hi Jan, that story of the Ghost Widow is hilarious. I can’t say I’d have a lot of sympathy for him.
Yes, some poor golf widow expressing her true feelings about golf!
Demons froze your camera? Can happen in Halloween. Dousing the camera in chocolate may not help now
I can to completely reboot the iPhone to perform the exorcism!
Happy a belated Halloween. Also today today is Happy day of of the dead. 💀
I did have a Happy Hallowe’en, in spite of all the scary posts on WP!
Gee, that abandoned house looks pretty nice! I adore bungalows. They are rare in Toronto.
