Oh well now, as adults, we we don't need to go trick or treating anymore. We can just buy big bags of candy and then, on Halloween night, turn the porch lights off and
how much candy is left at the end of the night!
There must be a Homecoming dance going on somewhere as the Turntable starts off with "A White Sportcoat and a Pink Carnation". The flipSide begins with CCR - "Credence Clearwater Revival's" "Bad Moon Risin" (think Halloween). Skip's Corner is all in this week featuring a rather harrowing brush with Bigfoot! Finally, our "newsworthy" SUCK'S NEWS features Steve Hartman's encounter with a professional pumpkin carver! Finally Skip and Lynn share a couple of pics of their life in Juneau on PICTURESQUE!
Till Next week / Stay safe and I'll see you on the Turntable!
