#Halloween Countdown With A Throw Back and Music #TBT

This is the first time I have ever done throw back Thursday on my blog. I thought since it was the last day before Halloween that you, my readers, might like a fun photo of me and the hubby.

This one goes back to 2009. Can you guess what we were? HA!

#Halloween Countdown on #MondaysMusicMovesMe

Hello there my favorite Boils and Ghouls. It is a beautiful day here in good 'o Colorado. It is also cool and crisp as one would expect at this time of year. Since this is the last week of October we generally expect it to snow some time this week. We shall see.

As it is also Monday, it is time to hit the dance floor with those musical gals at Mondays Music Moves Me. You might not know them, as they are wearing costumes this week, there is Xmas Dolly dressed as conductor, and Cathy, Stacy, Callie, and Becca all dressed as co-conductors. Isn't it crazy how they all coordinated their costumes?

This week is a freebie which delights me because that means I continue on with my Halloween countdown.

Over the weekend, Tamirisc and I went to the Halloween Masked Ball. We hung out with other ghouls, goblins, and ghost. So, this first song seems quite appropriate.

Moving on: Dancing around with other "monsters" is loads of fun when you have good bands!

Finally: One things for sure, when you have that many in one place, you must beware as vampires and some ghost don't mix. *wink* The best things to do is scream..."IT'S ALMOST HALLOWEEN!"

10 #Halloween Fun Facts and Musical Countdown

For me, when it comes to Halloween, it all about fun. I enjoy the colors, dressing up, candy, hayrides, and yes, the scares too. Although, admittedly, I HATE being scared.

I do not like the blood and guts kind of stuff. I am not really sure when Halloween became synonymous with that either. I also don't get the whole sexy costumes either but I guess, that is just me.

Here are 10 Halloween fun facts in no particular order:

1. $2 billion dollars is spent every year on Halloween candy alone. What is your favorite?

2. If you are in Hollywood on Halloween, you cannot use any silly string or you will be fined $1000.

3. Jack-o-lanterns were originally made out of turnips. This was based off of the legend of Stingy           Jack.

4. Samhainaphobia is the fear of Halloween.

5. The famous magician, Harry Houdini, died on Halloween night in 1926. Some people still hold           seances to hear from him.

6. Although Salem, MA is probably most well know for being the Halloween "Capital", Anoka, MN       also claims this honor.

7. The largest pumpkin grown thus far was weighed in at 2032 pounds. This record was set last year       (2013) by farmer, Tim Mathison.

8. There are no words that rhyme with orange.

9. Halloween is the second largest industry seller next to Christmas.

10. The most popular Halloween costume to wear every year is the "witch".

#MondaysMusicMovesMe....#Halloween Countdown Continues

I am back for another week of Mondays Music Moves Me with the musical gals hosted by Xmas Dolly. Her back up crew of Stacy, Callie, Cathy, and Becca are top notch. Aren't I lucky to be joining them this week again as co-host?

I apologize for not getting around to any of you last week. I don't have an excuse really. Cobwebs in the brain? I dunno.  I promise, I will be by this week!

I seemed to have failed miserably at keeping up with my daily Halloween music post. I don't know about that either. Maybe the zombies this weekend ate my brains?

What I do know is we have another "freebie" week which is good so, maybe I can catch up with some spook-tacular Halloween music.

Up first: If you know me at all, you know I sometimes like listening to the old crooners. This guy is one of my favs.

Next up: This guy must have liked Halloween a lot more than was first thought. He has several songs that lends themselves to the holiday.  Of course we all know his most famous video. Don't we? Have you heard this one?

Moving on: I offer this one. This singer is new to me. However, I like the beat and the haunting intro to the song.

Finally: This comes directly from one of my more favorite Halloween movies that has become what I think to be a classic. I like the singer of course!

#MondaysMusicMovesMe #Halloween 13

Howl-lo everybody! I am back after a few days of chaos. I missed posting my musical days but I had messed up my blog and had to take a few days to fix it. Do you like the changes?

Since it is the 13th of the month that means a couple of things. First, it is my son's . He is 25 today which is hard to believe in my mind. This is my baby, folks!

Today is also Monday and that always means Monday's Music. The gals there, you know them, Becca, Cathy, Callie,  Stacy, and of course, Marie, have asked me to fill in this week as a co-host since Cathy is taking a tiny break. In fact, I will be here the rest of the month. Wheee.......


So, this week is a freebie week which is a good thing since I need to carry on with my Halloween theme. I have decided to do a little catch up with the last few songs I have missed posting. Hope you have a howl-ling good time with them! Warning: Some are a bit creep-tastic!

First up: 

This gals voice is sultry which makes for the song she is singing even spookier.

Next: I think it is funny to see the caliber of Susan Sarandon in this cult classic but, a classic it is!

Finally: Since it is my son's birthday, (even though he does not read my blog) this one is for him. He is a huge fan!
