Halloween Musings – Photos, Friends and Silliness

Time to share a few photos and friends here for some Halloween Musings. Let me preface this post by saying that as usual, my techie world still doesn’t wish to comply with my needs. Hence, some of the video clips may not surface for a long time. I spent two hours making a guess mess of the one clip I did try to edit – too bad I couldn’t edit the gum right out of my mouth too. LOL. So please excuse my amateur camera work, confirming I should just stick to writing.


Our first girl get-together earlier last week with our ‘gang of girls’, took place at Sanja’s niece’s home downtown in the city. As always, it was like years never passed, and a good forty of them we’ve all been friends. This picture below shows how we all look – pre our Halloween costumes on the weekend.

A rare sighting, I snapped up this photo fast of my two besties together, Anna and Sanja

It was Halloween weekend and with my bestie Sanja in town from the UK, she wanted to have a Halloween party up at her sister Kokie’s house in our great white north – cottage country where she lives.

Alyson and Marg picked me up as we headed the journey up north with our many bags – food, costumes and libations. We had many a laugh as the day into night progressed. Marg dressed as an old woman in a housedress and a wig that came complete with a babushka kerchief and glasses that looked like something that ‘Flo’ from the old TV show, Alice, would wear. Pre-party, Marg demonstrated her Halloween look and insisted each of us try on her get up. I tried to refuse, but there’s no such thing as refusing around this gang.

We danced, we ate, we drank, we laughed. And we sang. In between the good music – courtesy of Spotify, Kokie’s friend Patrick played guitar and we had some hilarious sing-a-longs. As I was busy flitting around I caught quite a few music interlude snippets on video and wanted to share them here, unfortunately, my techie madness continues and somehow my laptop wants nothing to do with downloading videos from my phone. Below is a feeble attempt at a video I tried to edit (not well), and this is what I got:


Please know there was alcohol involved in this performance πŸ˜πŸ€£πŸ˜πŸŽƒπŸ’„



Apparently, I lost the dance Marg and I were doing and some off-tune singing, so clearly, video editing is not my thing.


It was a fun weekend with just a dozen of us eating, dancing, singing, ping ponging, and most of all, laughing up in our Canadian great white north which isn’t yet white, but based on the temps outside now and my wearing furry socks and lounge wear indoors, I’d say the’ white stuff’ is soon on its way.

  1. HI Debby, what fun to see you and your friends having such a good time. I think you all make fantastic Flo’s. We don’t really have Halloween here so I’ve only been to two Halloween parties in my life. One of them was hosted by me. I am amazed that San can lift her leg up like that – you go girl!


    1. LOL Robbie. We were all amazed at some of the crazy things we can still do. LOL. This was what I’d call, ‘Halloween party light’, compared to our younger years when Marg and her husband used to throw a very popular Halloween party in their house for few decades, sometimes packed like sardines, lol. πŸ™‚ xx


      1. There is nothing more healing and rejuvenating than time with our girlfriends. This is obvious from the joyful expressions on all of your faces. Great fun. And great love between you all.


  2. You devil, you. I love your costume, and you all look hilarious as old women. Thank goodness that’s still decades and decades from now. And the video came out great. It was fun to see you having so much fun!


    1. Lol thank you for your kind compliment Diana. My video skills are for the pits, lol. That is why I will still hold you to your generous offer for a trailer for my next book. LOL πŸ™‚ Lovely to see you back around blogland. ❀


  3. Wow, Debby, you all had fun! It’s great to see a friendship such as yours surviving through the years, and growing stronger (and aging “gracefully” and especially with a fabulous sense of humour). Robbie is doing much better than me in the Halloween parties department, as I’ve never been to any, but yours is something, for sure.
    Keep enjoying yourselves and wrap up warm!


  4. Thank you for sharing your moment of happiness, Debby! Grab onto those moments and let them sustain you. I had to laugh out loud at your video attempt. πŸ™‚ Reminds me of myself.


  5. Hi Debby – that was wonderful … and how fantastic you could all get together and have a lovely time sharing friendship. Fabulous to see everyone so happy – as too dressed up and rarin’ to go with your Halloween musings – looks way more than musings … lots of laughter, cosiness, times to remember and just being able to get away into your near north – without the white. Loved it – thank you … cheers Hilary


  6. Debby,
    Happy belated Halloween. This looks like so much fun! It is great to get together with the girls. Thanks for sharing. It brought a smile to my face πŸ™‚
    Many Blessings,
    Lisa xoxo
