If I've sent you here, go to as many friends as you want and tell them that they've been "BOO!-ed". They should link back to your blog, pick up the cool Halloween pic, and BOO! their friends. Then put the pic in your sidebar so that everyone knows you've already been "BOO-ed" and to share the pic with someone else. Isn't this fun? Have a safe and fun Halloween!!!! I have a friend who loooooves Halloween. So I hope those of you that love this holiday as much as Savannah does, may you be BOO'ed by many sweet little ghosts and goblins on the 31st. I can't wait to see them!!

Tempted? My dad used to eat this like chili. We eat it more like a dip. A little is enough for me, but the hubby really likes a lot of it.
2-1/2 lb. gr. beef
1 medium, chopped onion
1 (10-3/4 oz.) can cream of mushroom soup
1 (10-3/4 oz.) can cream of chicken soup
1 pkg. taco seasoning
1 (16 oz.) jar picante sauce -we use medium, if you want fire go hotter...
1 lb. shredded cheese - cheddar, colby or monterey jack whatever your preference.
Brown ground beef and onion. Drain. Add soups, seasoning and picante sauce in a large pot. Drizzle the cheese to get stringy throughout the mixture. Can be used to slow cook in a crock pot for game day!! I hope you enjoy!!

firstname.lastname@example.org. I will try my best to get this in the mail to you tomorrow since I don't work on Mondays. I'm excited because my sweet friendly pumpkin and romantic smelling candle is making a trip half way around the globe. And Diane, I promise there are a few good sniffs left in that wonderful candle!!! Congratulations!!
I have to show you my new wreath. Part of the reason why I was so late today was because Mom and I HAD to make a trip to the Ben Franklin's Store. This, believe it or not, the fall, berry loaded wreath had an original price tag of $34.99. I got it for $5.00. My lucky day. I almost bought it for half price last week, so glad I didn't!!! Fall is here in mid Missouri everyone. I hope you have a great one. I hope to visit everyone who left comments for my giveaway. Thanks to all of you!

I love these little pumpkins. I really should put my name in the hat too! Up for grabs is the Faith Family Friends Pumpkin, a "jack" pin, little fall ornies, a primitive acorn candle ring and my very favorite candle emphatically named, "Woods". I'm telling you ladies, the lucky winner of this candle will be begging me for more!! heee heee.
Now the rules. Don't worry. You don't have to send me gas money or your first born. Just kindly leave me a comment to get your name entered into one of the hubby's "lucky" Cardinal hats he failed to wear this season. AND, to get your name into the drawing twice, I grant you permission to borrow my picture above, post it on your blog and link back to my sight. Then you, yes you lucky lady may be the winner of the that savory, luscious candle I can't stop sniffing.
I will draw the lucky winner Saturday night.
I know I said no more sad stories or bad stories in a previous post. But, I lied. Again. I have one more. I'm sick about it. One night 2 weeks ago Reynaldo woke me up. I could tell he was playing on my computer desk and knocked something over. No problem. I knew from experience that I did not have my water glass sitting out, so whatever it was, no problem. No problem until the day of trash pickup. The hubby had the cat doing something wild and I thought I could take a video of it to put on my blog. Panic. No camera ANYWHERE. Reality soon sat in as I recalled the loud noise I heard the nights earlier. The night I thought it was all okay because I didn't have my glass sitting out for my computer to get drenched, again. Reynaldo had knocked off my camera into the trash can. The hubby took the trash to the curb just that Friday morning of the ReyRey's antics. The hubby rarely remembers the trash by my desk. But no, not that Friday. ReyRey trashed my camera!!! It's up on Teter hill, in the landfill of no good. Now I'm back to taking pictures like the blurry one above. My stomach still jerks. I still feel the well of tears that would not produce. I should've checked. I should've looked all around the next morning to see what the noise was about. That night... I should've served... the hubby... crockpot kitty...

Wonderful old homes. We hope to return soon to see more of the fantastic homes here. The streets were so crowed with cars it was difficult to get around.
Lots and lots of pottery...
Caners. I believe she said she would charge $25 a square...
This man was working very intently on his chairs...
Hickory, oak, cherry, you name it...
A cute little house...
More craft wares...
