    I am not telling what my costume is - that way when I don't get it done and have to improvise noone will know the original concept! :D

    Oooh, I could use free tickets! Alys Beach is the only place I will ever be for halloween! Last year we were Bill & Sookie from True Blood. My favorite costume was by far the couple who actually dressed up as the Dia de la Muertos dolls. Such a great idea :)

    It takes a long time when you don't know how to sew, have no pattern, and run out of material. :lol:

    Halloween memory #1:

    Almost every year it would rain or snow on Halloween, so we would go out trick or treating until we were frozen, then come home, dry off, change into pajamas, slippers, and robes, and sit on the floor of the kitchen to examine our hauls and swap.

    Unwrapped/broken candy was thrown out/eaten by Mama Scooterbug, the apples from the old lady down the street were made into applesauce, and she had us separate out all the chocolate bars to put in the freezer for treats during ski season (these were always conveniently left behind by our chocoholic mother and never seen again).

    The rest was traded according to the trick or treater's tastes and then we put our bags in the fridge - where the candy would slowly disappear until only the yucky orange and black peanut bar toffee things were left and they were discarded to make room for Thanksgiving items.

    I have not gotten to participate in Halloween for YEARS! Every year, I've had something going on, although these past two years I have sorely envied all those who have gotten to go to this spectacular party! This year I decided, come hell or high water, that I was gonna go! :blush::D

    So! I anticipate THIS year's Alys Beach Party to be my favorite Halloween memory! Make it a good one for me, guys! :clap:

    [SIZE=+1]A couple was invited to a swanky masked Halloween Party. She got a terrible headache and told her husband to go to the party alone. He, being a devoted husband, protested, but she argued and said she was going to take some aspirin and go to bed, and there was no need of his good time being spoiled by not going. So he took his costume and away he went.

    The wife, after sleeping soundly for one hour, awakened without pain, and as it was still early, she decided to go to the party. In as much as her husband did not know what her costume was, she thought she would have some fun by watching her husband to see how he acted when she was not with him.

    She joined the party and soon spotted her husband cavorting around on the dance floor, dancing with every hot woman he could, and copping a little feel here and a little kiss there. His wife sidled up to him and being a rather seductive babe herself, he left his partner high and dry and devoted his time to the new stuff that had just arrived.

    She let him go as far as he wished; naturally, since he was her husband. Finally he whispered a little proposition in her ear and she agreed, so off they went to one of the cars and had sex.

    Just before unmasking at midnight, she slipped away and went home and put the costume away and got into bed, wondering what kind of explanation he would make for his behavior.

    She was sitting up reading when he came in and asked what kind of a time he had. He said, "Oh, the same old thing. You know I never have a good time when you're not there."

    Then she asked, "Did you dance much?"

    He replied, "I'll tell you, I never even danced one dance. When I got there, I met Pete, Bill Brown and some other guys, so we went into the den and played poker all evening. But I'll tell you... the guy I loaned my costume to sure had a real good time!" [/SIZE]

    Favorite memory... Riding in the back of my dad's 76 Chevrolet pick up with my brothers...all in full costume...crisp Northeast GA night. The smell of fallen leaves...and a plastic pumpkin full of candy.

    Going to a costume party in Watersound and being shocked when Sara Palin showed up.

    She's a lot taller in person.
