Video by the neighbor...

We have a neighbor that took a video/photos of our home during Halloween.  He came over knocked on the door, handed a DVD to the Mister, said he made this for us, and turned to leave.  The Mister stopped him and chatted and told him I would be thrilled.  I am THRILLED!  There was a man on Halloween that was everywhere taking photos of everything....everything.  I am so humbled that a stranger would do this for us.

The beginning of this video is of Harrison Blvd.  It is the historic street that is THE place to be on Halloween. The homeowners on Harrison Blvd generally get 1200+ TOTs.  We had 334 and I am in love with that!  At about :24 the video is of our house in the daylight and then Halloween night.  I can't tell you how much this means to me.  It's a pretty good video and I never seem to have the time to do this.  I generally don't see the kids and people outside because I'm busy with the TOTs.  It warms my heart to think someone...someone out there appreciates what we do for one night of total Halloween fun.

I made a Pumpkin Banana Bread for my neighbor as a "Thank You".  The Mister pointed out the house and away I went.  I was effusive in my thanks and he was gracious in his praise and excitement over our haunt on Halloween.  Nice to meet a neighbor I haven't met before.

I hurry home and relate to the Mister about meeting our very kind neighbor.  Here's the kicker.  Our neighbor is NOT the man I saw taking so many photos and videos.  I'm thinking I need to bake another Pumpkin Banana Bread or maybe....lock the doors.

Thanks to my neighbor.............


  1. What a great story ending to what looks like a fantastic Halloween! Your garden is amazing, it's no wonder you had so many TOT's. I must confess, I read: "Come to the dark side - we have cocktails" :)

    1. Oh, I like how you read! We did have cocktails...just didn't post that info to the roaming public.
