The candy is gone, the porch lights are out and the door is closed, the witches, Batmen, Spideys, Scary Movie Killers and princes have all flown on in search of sweet Halloween treats, bringing another Halloween on Spruce Street to a close. This year I didn't give out comics for the first time in years. I didn't have time to go through the attic and dig for decent comics to give away this year; and I don't think the kids missed it, only one kid asked for comics.
I had a Halloween party last nite in Casa Manley, many were invited but only a few hardy partiers came. My Brother Marc, ( his own gruesomeness a costume itself) my neighbor and good buddy Chuck from next door, Jamar and Darcy, Claire and Echo.
I invited many more but so many people were busy, out of town this weekend or hung over from Saturday to attend. Losers!
The spread was readied early while the night was still slumbering in it's tomb.
Those who braved the ghoulish night were treated to a monstrous dinner cooked by the Monsterman himself...
Home made Chili, corn bread, and wings!
We had quite a few costumes...
And of course, your host...Monster Manley.
We ate, joked, drew and had a great time. I hope to host an even bigger party next Halloween!
