Vacant

Here's a vacant house for ILLUSTRATION FRIDAY for Halloween Day! I can hardly express how much the image of a proverbial "Haunted House" means to me, and I can't explain it. These old Halloween metaphors are comforting to me, maybe because of the childhood memories.
Happy Halloween!- John

Drats. I had every intention of visiting your blog on Halloween, but I'm just a couple of days off. I bet your house was the most fun one on the block, wasn't it. And how on earth do you get those pumpkins out of your tree now? :D

How awesome are your haunted houses! Yours are the best. Keep 'em coming!
