Mostly Ghostly


It's time for us to talk about 'The Ghost Line'.  You are all well aware of the Halloween obsession that consumes the ladies in my family.  However, it's not just us...my Dad (though he will likely deny it) is just as crazy about this spooky Holiday.  Years ago he rigged a pulley system on the top of his roof to the street lamp across the street.  He and my Mom fashioned some whispy ghosties to a fishing line and they would travel eerily back and forth.  Now it attaches to the neighbors roof, the street light and is a well-oiled machine!  The number of ghosts has grown (there's even a little ghosty family and the Dad is a little squirrely, just like mine) along with the fan base.  The whole neighborhood enjoys the floating ghosts that keep an eye on their street!  It's seriously SUCH a cool thing.  My Dad has a small remote that he keeps in his pocket at all times - ready to start and stop the ghost line at a moment's notice!  He's very serious about it.  So if you are up in the haunted hills of Quail Summit, watch out for ghosts!

How adorable! My Dad is big on decorating for Halloween too, except they put decapitated heads on the lawn and stuff...they're all about making small children cry.
