In my blog I plan to chat about nature, crafts, baking, gardening, beekeeping, family, and whatever else seems appropriate at the time. Sit back, relax, and enjoy!

Halloween Fun!

Last Saturday evening, several of us went to an "organ concert" called Music of the Night at Crown Hill Cemetery in Indianapolis.  The concert featured Charles Manning, the Phantom Organist.  
We met in the Gothic Chapel for the concert.
A few songs might sound familiar to you, such as Ghost busters, Witch Doctor, and there was "name that tune game" of old TV show theme songs such as The Adams Family, The Monsters, Casper the Friendly Ghost, etc. (I think Jodie 'with an ie''s husband watched a lot of TV as a kid....just sayin.)

 After the concert and a refreshment of cider and donuts, we went for a cemetery tour.
 The cemetery was established in the early to mid 1800's and it is over 500 acres.
 There are several famous people in this cemetery,
 such as President Benjamin Harrison, John Dillinger, and some famous poet whose name escapes me at the moment!
 We walked all the way to the top of the "crown" and if my camera were any good, it would have taken a beautiful shot of the Indianapolis skyline at night.  But I don't have a decent camera.  
I did have a fun time that evening though!

So, here's the scoop.....
I don't know if Groovy Girl Yarn has a ghost or not, all I know is yes, some weird things have been heard and seen in that building.  So far all is friendly.  
My computer has not been working properly.  It's been crashing on me.  So today I went and purchased a back-up system.  You know the kind.  "Easy to use, just plug in and push a button."  I'm ready to heave it all across the road in the pond.  But it is the reason I haven't been online much lately.
Lastly, my camera stopped working this week too.  All of this electronic dysfunction has just added more work to my already busy week.
Is anyone doing anything special for Halloween fun this weekend?

  1. Dont you know that ghosts drain electrical energy and drain your batterys?......duh...Bee

    Maybe the ghost likes you and follows you home to your spooky solitary country home on the top of the hill....Bwaaaahahahahahaha...ha

  2. I haven't been to Crown in AGES, it sounds like you had a great time.

  3. Looks like fun, Cindy!

    The Germans don't really go in for Halloween - so there isn't really anything special going on here right now. The weather has gone unseasonably cold though - time to stay indoors and keep warm!

    Hope you sort your techie troubles soon ... there's nothing more frustrating.

  4. Wow good times. Techie problems and ghosts mmmm who knows. :) B
