it looks as if the weather is gonna be perfect for halloween.
last nights moon was slightly hidden behind all the fogginess of the clouds.
the rain has hopefully stopped, but everything remains damp & gloomy.
perfect spooky halloween weather.

our cemetery has a lot of old and creepy looking markers...

some are even from the early 1800's.

there were so many written in german.

this one caught my attention,  since most of the houses on our block were built by the reece family

a lot of the markers were broken...which made them look even creepier.

this place always creeped me out as a kid....the warkentin crypt.
my friend and i used to walk through the cemetery when we were in middle school.
i don't exactly remember why we did, but for some reason it must have intrigued us.
we would dare each other to go up to it and see if it was unlocked. 

their house is in our neighborhood also.
i gave a couple tours there in 8th grade for extra credit in drama class.
i wish i would of appreciated it more back then...i remember nothing about that house now.
maybe i should go and take the tour again....i'll add it to my list of weird things i wanna do :)

in case you were wondering if i just happen to hang around cemetery's...
the answer is no.
every time i would go visit my grandma's grave, i would notice all of the old stones.
they are actually kinda cool, in a weird sort of way.
they really did some neat writing on them back then.
some are very artistic.
some tug at your heart.
some just give you the shivers.
i would not wanna be hang'in around here in the dark, that's for sure.

well, gotta go a carve up some spooky jack-o-lanterns for all the trick or treaters.
have a great halloween & try not to get spooked!
