Last spring, during a stroll in downtown Hannibal, I looked up at the attic window of an old house and saw this skeleton. I was told by a nearby shopkeeper that it has been there for ages. Wishing everyone a pleasant Halloween
This family has been lining the walls with jack-o-lanterns for as long as I have lived in town. This year the wall is all orange pumpkins. They have used everything from pink, purple, black, orange or a mixture of colors over the years. The plastic pumpkins light up at night.
I found this rather odd. The main road beside a major area shopping mall, deserted in the middle of a Sunday afternoon. Was it the expected rain, or the St. Louis Cardinals in the world series playoff?
