Next summer we also plan to go back to Lake George, and go on one of their ghost tours of Fort William Henry. I guess Ghost Hunters went there a few years ago and found "evidence" of strange goings on.

We've walked around them for hours before just seeing what the oldest headstone we could find was.

I love old buildings and that sort of thing, too. Salem would be awesome!

On the way there, there is a rumored very haunted cemetery in near Worcester, MA. It's name is Friend Cemetery, aka Spiders Gate Cemetery, I have heard stories of it since I was a kid. It also has the nickname of being the "Eighth Gate to H**l.

Good evening,

Okay, can somebody please tell me where today went, it was 10pm before I even sat down today. We were so busy today doing errands and other things we just lost the day. I did pick up a brand new Santa from Goodwill today, we had to go there to drop off LC's old clothes and of course I couldn't resist looking at the Christmas stuff. Our friend, who is cleaning out her house also gave us some old Christmas decorations and ornaments, including some early to mid 60's Shiny Brite ornaments, and some 30+year old Hallmark ornaments. I will try to get my pictures posted tomorrow. Here is a sample of one from Lake George, NY:


Have a good night all!

When I saw Xmas365's photo of "A Christmas to Remember", I though the Christmas Blossoms thread had launched prematurely!


Good Morning, once-again-it's-the-weekend Friends.

How can these weekends keep coming and going so quickly?
Racing by faster all the time.

As proof, just look how far along our count has advanced and how little time there is left until yet another Milestone arrives:
Days to the Season: 81
Days to Christmas Day: 123
In fact, that next Milestone, the 2/3 Christmas Day marker, arrives TOMORROW.
Merciful heavens!

Warm and humid yesterday but the weekend promises to be cooler with lower humidity according to the weather service.
(I'll hold them to it!)
We are at 67 degrees here, currently.

Have a Sensational Saturday, Everyone!
