Dear Friends

I spent a four day holiday with my family and celebrated my daughters birthday at the Biltmore, Ashville and Reynolda Park in Winston Salem.  Time has a way of making you enjoy the simple things for example, picnics, walks, sloppy chicken and stopping to smell the roses.  With Halloween around the corner have you ever watched the movie Hush, Hush, Sweet Charlotte?  I am a big Betty Davis fan and when the kids were young we watched the movie, I fell asleep and they would be haunted by her lovers head bouncing off the stairs forever!!!  (Bad Mother) I bought the two small girl and boy statues at my sons house, (a sweet junk store the same store I bought the vintage radio), they already had the mask.  While the shop keeper was packing me up she dropped and broke the girl.  It was an Avon perfume bottle that came a part at the neck, LOL and rolled and still had the perfume in it.  What a great interlude to "Hush...Hush Sweet Charlotte and Halloween.  My mantel is decorated for Halloween and memories of Hush...Hush...

May the good spirits be with you!
