HAPPY HALLOWEEN

It was raining here yesterday. Instead of curling up with a good book, I watched "The Good Witch's Family" on the Hallmark channel. I love to watch movies anyway. Thank you Elisabeth for your advice.

We have the candy. We have the mums and pumpkin on the front porch. Inside the house has been decorated with lots of scarecrows. Tonight we will leave the light on to light the way for witches and goblins to knock on the door and say "TRICK OR TREAT." What fun Halloween is!

What did you do for Halloween?

Saturday a very good friend of mine and I decided to go to the Highwood Pumpkin Fest. We just couldn't believe our eyes when we saw racks and racks and more racks of pumpkins lining the main street which was blocked off for the fest. The goal is to carve 32,000 pumpkins to achieve the Guinness World Record.

I saw this sign many times from the "L." However, this is the first time I have ever visited Wrigley Field and to top it all off it was with my two grandchildren, daughter-in-law and son. If you are interested in booking a tour click here: http://chicago.cubs.mlb.com/chc/ballpark/tours/index.jsp?content=daily.

Included in the tour is a visit to the broadcasting booth, the home and visitor locker rooms, the bleachers, the dugout and field plus the tour guide filled us in on the history of the Chicago Cubs. A toy in no time is cast aside but this trip builds memories with the family.







Scenic: field and city.

Thats all folks for now. Hope you will visit this blog again. Meanwhile, take care.
