Boo! JNWs Halloween Challenge, Oct. 25, 2016, Scary


Judy Ghost

For about a year, in every photo of my sister, she was wearing cowboy boots.  I doubt she was half so startled as this scene suggests.  I had a nylon stocking over my face and the pointed head is an illusion created by the fold of the sheet.  I think it is interesting that the Frosty the Snowman plastic “ornament” is already out on the end table.  Or perhaps it is still there from the Xmas before. At any rate, short of field mice or spiders, this is as scary as it ever got at my house.

The prompt word today is “Scary.”

About lifelessons

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.

      ha.. It occurred to me that it might not be obvious, thus the explanation. If you enlarge it you can see that my nose was flattened and my lips pulled up above my gums by the nylon over my head.

    As I recall, you dressing up in various ways was not limited to Halloween. I think this must have been taken in December since Mother was fairly rigorous in her holiday decorating schedule back then. It was only in her later years that she brought out the Christmas decorations around Halloween. And why do I have those grubby boots on the couch? Shame on me.
