A Gathering of Old Souls...come join us

A knock at the door ... who could it be ...

It's Mumford !  My friend I haven't seen you in centuries !  To what do I owe this honor ?

Well Sam ...it's almost Halloween .. the most magical of nights ... a time for tricks and treats .. for long cemetery walks by the light of our lanterns and the full moon above us.  We long to hear the werewolves howl and the witches chant as they toil over their boiling kettles that are filled with the strangest of concoctions .





Oh Mumford .. time is of the essence .. we must make our way to the burial ground where the lost souls reside .  It is of most importance to be on time !


Our first stop was at Brunzelda's so that we may procure a special offering of an eye of newt and a wing of bat to appease the nightwalkers that we may meet on our way .  But alas she was not home .. odd since the table had been set and awaiting us .. or possibly .. other visitors ...

So we set off with only the "caw caw" of the crows to guide us on our way .


We came upon the Pumpkin Man who watches over all who rest here .. he told us to hasten our visit . The darkness falls soon .. and some souls cannot be kept silent.


When we came upon the ancient ground .. and saw the signs .. we weren't sure if we should turn back . But Mumford said we had come this far and so we kept on.







We saw Lizzie's resting place first .. she was a dear friend whom no one understood.  The stories about her are just stories .. we think.







Sara ..  one of Brunzilda's sisters .. she was a good witch . But in those days they did not believe there could be such a thing so her fate was sealed.






Our dearest friend of all .. Mr. Poe . Sometimes on Halloween night we can still hear the lonely cries of the Raven ... Nevermore...Nevermore.

Night is almost upon us so we must take care and heed the Pumpkin Man's plea and be gone from this place....we hope that you enjoyed your stay .  And remember .. when Halloween  is here .. don't fear the creaks and cries you may hear .. it's only a gathering of souls celebrating the night .




Be sure to join the rest of the partygoers at Vanessa's Halloween Party !!
