Posts Tagged ‘skeletons’

I live in a small town bordered on one side by the Delaware River and surrounded by beautiful countryside. The advantages of a small town are many, especially at Halloween where we welcome a goodly amount of always well-costumed trick-or-treaters, (even the┬áparents dress up.)

Does she stay there all the time? I’m hoping┬áthe people have put a soft white LED light beneath her to help her glow eerily, but I haven’t been by after dark yet.
