Ghosts, Ghoulies, and Two Girls
Friday, October 30, 2020
I think it was the year 1963. I dressed up as Casper the Ghost with the plastic mask and matching outfit and my little three year old sister dressed up as Tweety Bird. It was dusk, and we went down the street to a friend's house to trick or treat.
There it was in his front yard....on the other side of the tree. We didn't see it until we had gotten our candy and turned to go.
A life size Frankenstein! Right there! I let out a blood curdling scream, and ran home 3 houses down, as fast as I could. My poor little sister tripped on something and fell down in our next door neighbor's yard. She was terrified and traumatized.
After all these years we can laugh about it, but that night we were not laughing!
