"The Book of Me, Written By You" is a GeneaBloggers project created by Julie Goucher of the Anglers Rest blog. The concept: a series of blogging and writing prompts that help family historians capture their own memories and write about themselves.
Prompt 9: Halloween
Have you ever participated in a Halloween event?
Rarely, but yes, a significant one - must have been 1973. I was a personal assistant to Governor Robert D. Ray of Iowa, and then Deputy Commissioner, Iowa Department of Social Services. The governor hosted a Halloween in the Governor's Mansion, Terrace Hill.
Guess you can see I dressed as the Lone Ranger, my wife was an Indian Princess; Annette was a Skeleton, an Allison and Arrion were witches.
It was a great experience, once, but not something we had any desire to duplicate. We are definitely not "party animals!" - though it is hard to tell from this photo... we seem to be having a great time! ;-)
Families are Forever!
