Hold on to what is good even if it is a handful of earth.
Hold on to what you believe even if it is a tree which stands by itself.
Hold on to what you must do even if it is a long way from here.
Hold on to life even when it is easier letting go.
Hold on to my hand even when I have gone away from you.

Photos of Spooks and More!

OK, I got THREE count em THREE rolls of film back today, so we are in for a photo extravaganza. Actually I'm only gonna do the halloween pics now. Other pics will have to wait. Cuz already the halloween ones are gonna be two entries so we don't get tooooo bogged down.

My god, when I was at my friend's in the country, she has dialup. May I say EEEEEEEKKKKKK!! OMG I so admire the patience of everyone who has dialup. Who can STAND the wait?? This is why I have cable modem... the first time I saw the internet was on dialup... I was searching for an image of marmottes. My atthetime girlfriend was all like "oh you can save time finding one on the internet!!" yah right. With dialup. Took about ten minutes for each picture to be visible, just to go "not what I need, next..."

It dissuaded me from getting a computer and on the internet for another three and a half years after that. hehe. I totally am in awe of your patience, my dialup friends!!

Here we go with some photos. All of em Copyright 2004 Wench77, eh! First some dark spooooky ones! My house, the neighbor's, etc. The first one there to the side is my "witch" in the window before it got dark. She's my poor manikin who has lost the rod to hold up her body, so her legs are in the basement, and the arm (she lost one) is broken and awaiting an epoxy fix. But she looks great in the window! For this occasion she had a black wig, black shawl, black witchy hat, a flashlight lighting her face from below and a lamp backlighting her. I wish I had a pic of her in the dark! dang!

Well, that is my neighbor's place across the street, all lit up. It's too dark to see the kids on the sidewalk... the aperture was open so long they just blurred. Then that is me greeting, and my door lit up for the kiddies.

ooooo I'm so SPOOKY!!!!

And finally, here is my jack-o-lantern. I think he turned out pretty well. You can see what his fate was the next day by going to the next entry! oops!!!!

More on the next entry! And also, my description of Halloween itself is here.
