Music:Marie reading "The Homemade Dragon" by Norman Hunter
Old Fashioned Halloween fun
We went round to Lindsay's, Marie's old boss (& about the the only boss she has any time for:-) As we arrived a couple of trick or treaters were leaving & thats the last we saw of that. We'd just got the 2 Pratchett DVDs & we put Soul Music on as being appropriate Halloween entertainment. We'd also brought our electronic Battleships game along at the demand of 11 year old Kelly (aka the Jorb monster) & once she'd had a go at that she started wanting to play Twister...Fortunately I'd brought some apples along..
You see in my youth there was none of this trick or treat malarkey - on Halloween we used to bob for apples. So I produced the apples & plopped them into a bowl - telling Kelly to leave the twister mat behind as it was waterproof...what a good idea THAT turned out to be.
Kelly took to apple-bobbinglike a duck to water...
By the end we had 6 apples, a rubber duck, an onion, a comb & an avocado stone in there & she was doing it against the clock.... This is Kelly trying to get to grips with the onion..click on the pic if you want to see more
