The neighbors have become anxious...it is getting really close to Halloween and still no decorations! The guy across the street finally asked why no yard haunt...he has seen load after load go from the yard and knew something was up. After explaining that everything is set up at Books N More this year, he let me in on a little secret... It seems the girl down the street has been spreading rumors to the other kids to explain the unusual absence of Halloween spirit. Apparently, if her sources are correct, the old guy that does the decorating DIED and they had to give away all the Halloween stuff.
I find this hilarious.
Next year, Lucy....next year.
