THE HAUNTED HOUSE
Welcome to Sydney's Haunted House.
Vince will be your guide.
"Hi, I'm Vince. My friend Sydney will go to any length for Halloween. She even asks her husband Gary to "fix" the shutters every October!
Please follow me inside.
Need to sit down and rest for awhile?
As you may have noticed, I'm not a black cat, but there are plenty of those in our home!
This one spooks me and my brother Mo out every time we walk by it.
Mo, however, is planning to fight back with the help of his friend Polly.
Of course, there are lots of other frightening things around the house this time of year...
Hey, Sydney, what happened to those nice candles that are usually on the dining room table?
There's something strange to look at from the ceiling to the floor.
I'll be the first to admit that we have a real bug problem in the house.
But on the plus side, there's lots of stuff a cat can play with.
Think Sydney will notice if a few pieces are missing?
The kitchen is where Sydney really goes wild.
Shrunken houses lights up.
And when you least expect it, stuff turns, twists and makes noise.
Unfortunately, over the years, Sydney's gotten smarter. See these plates of rocks? They used to hold a buffet of Halloween cookies. Come on, can't we go back to edible treats, Sydney?
The birds aren't very tasty either.
But, sometimes, if I'm lucky, Sydney will read me a bedtime story.
No, not that ONE. I want to hear the Cat In The Hat!
Sometimes, I can swipe a bedtime treat.
But, I must admit, it's hard to sleep with all of those twinkling lights.
And, it's easy to think you're having a nightmare!
Even when you're not.
I hope you've enjoyed the tour.
Thanks for coming.
Don't forget to grab a Trick or Treat bag on your way out--if you dare."
P.S. I'm rethinking all of my post tabs and will be coming up with a new list over the next few days. Please bear with me.
