I'll Get You My Pretty!


Toto, we're not in Kansas anymore. Ladies, I recieved my witches hat from Ann-Marie today in the mail! I love it. I haven't as of yet started decorating for fall offically. But i just love it and can't wait to show it off. It will be one of my favorite fall pieces! We here in Independence have a Halloween week long celebration called Neewollah! (halloween spelled backwards) since its beginnings in 1919. We have a large play production put on by local talents, a week long carnival, food venders, a different national known singing talent puts on a Sat. evening concert, in the past Roy Clark, Oak Ridge Boys, Patty Loveless, Nitty Griity Dirt Bang, we crown a local high school senior as Queen Neelah! a doodah parade on Wed. night. ( mainly adults, local business employees) Fri. after school we have a kiddies parade where all the children dress up in costumes and sometimes elaborate floats. And then on Sat. is the big grand parade, where we usually have 100,000 people attend from all over everywhere. This coming from a community of 10,000. So halloween is a grand time here in Independence. I will have to sent photos of this yrs. events. Well I had better get the girls to dance class. Have a great week!

I'm so glade you like it, I was worried about how it would hold up in shipping but it appears to arrived fine. Did you have to fluff it up any?

Your town sounds like fun.
