The Haunted Library is located in Fenwright Manor, just behind those pocket doors in the foyer. Don't you just love the smell of old books? Actually it's just a how- to index

It's The Mummy

In 1989, I saw a gold King Tut Mask at K-Mart.  It was then I decided I was going to be a mummy.  My 1989 costume was thrown together at the last minute, and I didn't get the result I wanted.  This photo edit shows how I would have liked it.

And To All A Good Fright

This is the companion piece to Scary Christmas
From the haunted house project

From a poem I composed about 2007:

T'was the fright before Christmas, and all through the house, not a person was sleeping, not even a mouse.
The windows were all shuttered and bolted with care, in hopes of avoiding a ghastly scare.
Now the children should be asleep all snug in their beds, while above them are
things that cause dread.

  Settle down, and give pause, while I tell you about the ghost of  Skele Claus.

One Christmas eve not so long ago, he stalked his way through the snow
with an overcoat black as night, wrapped with a chain to add more fright.
With the familiar red hat and straggly white beard, kids saw him and would run with fear.
With eyes that glowed like fire and a bone chilling laugh that filled the halls, They knew on this cold night they were visited by the ghost known as Skele Claus!

Toilet Paper Gremlin

This post came from an idea that the Gremlins were wrecking my display.  This one is wrapped up in toilet paper after hijinks.
