    General Halloween
    The mermaid skeleton came! She is gorgeous!!! Rather than a typical bone color, she is kind of grayish, with a bendy tail. She'll certainly look better than our old mermaid, which was a regular Bucky type, with a homemade tail. Due to a house move, we couldn't Halloween last year, and when I...

  6. Your weird creature stories

    Paranormal and the Unexplained
    Do you have any to share? These are not in the ghost category, but might be considered more natural.
