By Sabrina Tate of THE BLACK CAT KNOCKS ON WOOD
The one person I must steer clear of this Halloween is Twila Baxter over at the antique store. She's a friendly enough woman, bless her heart, but she has an out-of-this-world notion that her dead husband is coming back to the store on Halloween. She keeps the dinner table set for his return - I kid you not. Worse, she thinks Hitchcock and I can help him make peace with his death and get over the hump into the after life. Like that's gonna happen. I plan to batten down the hatches on October 31 just in case ol' Twila decides to come around our place. Maybe we should dress in costume after all so she'd have a harder time finding us.
Do you have a costume for this Halloween? Ever dress up your pets?
