The Conners Go All Out for Halloween
Pictures by Marcia & Bob Cochran and Barb Kalmin
Ellen & Keith Conner hosted their 8th annual Trick or Drink Halloween
Party on Tuesday, October 31st. The Wilson Way neighbors are close-knit, getting
together each month for a party at one of their houses. Halloween is one of the
Conners' favorite holidays and Keith & Ellen picked Halloween as their month to
host, doing it for eight years now. And, Keith goes all out to decorate for the
fun event, decorating the outside as well as inside. Neighbors gathered about
6:00 p.m. to eat and drink, and by evening's end, his outside decorations
Keith decorated his golf cart with a macabre driver and parked it in the font
yard, along with spiders, ghosts, bats, cats, pumpkins, and the grim reaper. A
motion-activated witch greeted everyone at the door, scaring the wits out of
them if they didn't expect her to suddenly light up and let out a wicked laugh.
Hopefully, no one dropped the dish they'd brought. Everyone brought a small
dessert or appetizer in keeping with the holiday... eyeballs, fingers, or
whatever struck their fancy... to the party and/or a beverage to add to the bar.
Halloween costumes were optional, but most wore the Halloween colors of orange
and/or black, and some pulled out the Halloween shirts that they'd gotten from
Bealls in years past. Jim Selock really stood out as a prisoner, complete with
ball and chain. He also wore a sign: Just Married with the date he and Judy were
married, with Inmate FL# 08-02-80 on the flip side.
Inside of the house was decorated with light-up and chattering sculls, witches,
skeletons, ghost robots, and more. They even had a motion-activated snack dish
where a boney hand came down as you reached for an M & M. Yikes! In addition to
Halloween table covers for the food table, Ellen brought out her black spider
web shawl to add spookiness to the table.
As the party wound down, neighbors gathered their empty serving dishes or shared
what was left with others as they prepared to head back home. That's when
Keith's handiwork came to life for a special treat of lights and spooky figures,
sending everyone on their way.
Another successful Conner Halloween Party....
