Voices whisper in the trees, 'Tonight is Halloween!' Ē

  From Joyce Lawrence Cahoon ('65) of VA - 10/13/08 - "Halloween":


There are witches in my mailbox.
What am I to do?
I found them there this morning,
doing things they shouldn't do!!
How the witches got there,
I haven't got a clue.
But they won't be there much longer
because I'm sending them to

You've been Witch Kissed!

Before the warts begin to spread,
pass the kisses on instead!


   SQUAWK!!! Thanks again, Joyce!

    From Joan Lauterbach Krause ('60) of VA - 10/18/08 AND   From Joyce Lawrence Cahoon ('65) of VA - 10/26/08 - "Senior Halloween":


You know you are too old to Trick or Treat when:

10. You get winded from knocking on the door.

9.  You have to have another kid chew the candy for you.

8.  You ask for high fiber candy only.

7.  When someone drops a candy bar in your bag,
you lose your balance and fall over.

6.  People say: "Great Boris Karloff Mask," 
     And you're not wearing a mask.

5.  When the door opens you yell, "Trick or..." 
And can't remember the rest.

4.  By the end of the night, you have a bag full of restraining orders.

3.  You have to carefully choose a costume that won't dislodge your hairpiece.

2.  You're the only Power Ranger in the neighborhood with a walker.

And the number one reason Seniors should not go
Trick Or Treating...
1.  You keep having to go home to pee.

No matter, have a HAPPY HALLOWEEN anyway.

   MORE GIGGLES! Thanks, Ladies!

From Norris Perry (Warwick HS - '59) of VA - 10/29/08 - "HALLOWEEN CANDY RECALLED":

This is true - verified by Snopes:


There is a new warning put out by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency....

Sherwood brand Pirate's Gold Milk Chocolate coins are being recalled due to the fact that they contain  Melamine, the ingredient in milk products that has caused many infant deaths in China.  These candies are sold at Costco, as well as many bulk and dollar stores.  Check your children's Halloween candy  (the ones wrapped in the shiny gold foil) let other parents know about this!

   YOWZERONI-RINI!!! Thank you so much, Norris!

  From Joyce Lawrence Cahoon ('65) of VA - 10/29/08 - "HALLOWEEN STORY":

A man is walking home alone late one foggy Halloween night, when behind him he hears:




Walking faster, he looks back and through the fog he makes out the image of an upright casket banging its way down the middle of the street toward him.




Terrified, the man begins to run toward his home, the casket bouncing quickly behind him.






He runs up to his door, fumbles with his keys, opens the door, rushes in, slams and locks the door behind him. However, the casket crashes through his door, with the lid of the casket clapping.




on his heels, as the terrified man runs.

Rushing upstairs to the bathroom, he locks himself in. His heart is pounding; his head is reeling; his breath is coming in sobbing gasps.

With a loud CRASH the casket breaks down the door.

Bumping and clapping toward him.

The man screams and reaches for something, anything, but all he can find is a bottle of cough syrup! Desperate, he throws the cough syrup at the casket...



(hopefully you're ready for this!!!)
The coffin stops.

   GROAN!!! Thanks again, Joyce!

Danse Macabre

- Camille Saint-SaŽns
(9 Oct 1835 - 16 Dec 1921)

 Art song for voice and piano (first performed in 1872) with a French text by the poet Henri Cazalis (1840 - 1909)
which is based in an old French superstition.

An English translation of the poem follows:

Zig, zig, zig, Death in cadence,
Striking a tomb with his heel,
Death at midnight plays a dance-tune,
Zig, zig, zag, on his violin.
The winter wind blows, and the night is dark;
Moans are heard in the linden trees.
White skeletons pass through the gloom,
Running and leaping in their shrouds.
Zig, zig, zig, each one is frisking,
You can hear the cracking of the bones of the dancers.
A lustful couple sits on the moss
So as to taste long lost delights.
Zig zig, zig, Death contines
The unending scraping on his instrument.
A veil has fallen! The dancer is naked.
Her partner grasps her amorously.
The lady, it's said, is a marchioness or baroness
And her green gallant, a poor cartwright.
Horror! Look how she gives herself to him,
Like the rustic was a baron.
Zig, zig, zig. What a saraband!
They all hold hands and dance in circles.
Zig, zig, zag. You can see in the crowd
The king dancing among the peasants.
But hist! All of a sudden, they leave the dance,
They push forward, they fly; the cock has crowed.
Oh what a beautiful night for the poor world!
Long live death and equality!

The composer, two years later, expanded and reworked the piece for orchestra, replacing the vocal line with a solo violin.
