My mom was born in 1930 and doesn't remember ever celebrating halloween. She said people just didn't do it but my cousin,also born in 1930,tells me stories about how her and a neighbor boy would go out and trick or treat and then pull pranks on the mean neighbors by covering their porches in horse manure.
I am frequently caught in the middle of those two arguing over who is losing their mind first...LOL!
I bought this book a couple years ago...Games for Halloween dated 1912. I was surprised that nearly all the games/fortune telling ended with...."you will meet your true love". Never knew halloween was so focused on match making :)
That is so neat how you got into it....would love to find a pic that looked like ANY of my current family members but I see no resemblance in the dozens of pics we have...LOL!
I think the child is 2 years old as well. No experience....just alot of babysitting little blond babies. The photographer has alot of info on his life so I am able to cross out half the kids just by dates. I'm still stuck at one boy and one girl tho' and my head is going to explode going over all the math...LOL!
It was nice of them to tell the backstory during Talking Dead. How the heck was anyone supposed to put that together from what we saw during the show...LOL!
Did it look like all the guys he killed were all dressed the same to anyone else??? I was focusing on that trying to figure out who those men were and it seemed like they were all dressed in tan T-shirts.
I throw everything into the garage willynilly and worry about packing later. The house can stay decorated for how ever long but I get tired of the windows being blocked or all the black making the house dark and depressing this time of year so I have been taking inside stuff down to let some sunshine in :)
Wow lots of great info Gym and LaBruja! My mom also thinks the baby is a boy because of the way it looks. I'm thinking the pic is either of the first baby lost OR there was a set of boy/girl twins and the girl died so they took her pic. To tell you the truth as I was looking at the deaths I was wondering why all the first bunch of babies she had "mysteriously" died. There was also an 11 year old that passed so that makes all 5 of her first kids gone. My mom argues with me about what I remember...
The pic may bother some but I am trying to figure out who this baby is. I know it is my grandmothers sibling but my mom and I are having a disagreement about it's sex. Does anyone know if they dressed little boys in gowns like this back in the late 1800's? After I started digging I found that the first 4 of the children born to my great grandma all died between 1-2 years old(3 girls-1 boy) so you can see how difficult this will be :)
Thanks for any help!...
I'm confused about this ep....did the "twins" get poisoned or did they get sold to the rich people? Are they at least really dead? I hated the way they were filmed and will be glad not to have to see that anymore :)
CVS was weird this year. The ad said stuff was 33% off but the stores started clearancing before halloween and at all different prices. I asked why all the stores were different and the cashier said it has to do with how close they are located to eachother. I only have one in my town so they were the last to clearance(no competition). I would definately go ahead and make a complaint against that manager. They sometimes give you a receipt asking for your opinions so go for it. The customer...
I am always amazed every year how much people go nuts over the FCG. Maybe I am just bored with it after 10 years but the kids and parents love it. This year it seemed all the boys around 10-12yrs old commented how creepy it was and the little girls under 8 all wanted to hug it. Can't figure out why the white tule and glowing blue eyes would scare little boys :)
I was so disgusted watching TMZ a couple nights ago when they asked a celebrity what he was doing for halloween. He said he doesn't celebrate because as a kid his brother was poisoned by candy and his mom prayed to god that if he let him live she would never celebrate halloween again...so he never did either.
Then one of the guys on the show claimed he opended a box of candy once and needles fell out. Harvey Levin then began jumping up and down shouting "YES,YES they DO that kind of...
