HALLELUJAH FOR HALLOWEEN, OCTOBER 2012! This flirtatious skeleton bedecked with blue beads and matching pink lipstick and ribbon is the work of Nancy Wilkinson(photo by Hallelujah Truth)

Hallelujah for TIME and how we perceive it! As the last hour wanes on October 31, 2012, I am celebrating the conclusion of blogging for 15 continuous days, the day of the dead (Halloween), Ernie's 72nd birthday. TIME brings us endings and new beginnings. We need closure, so we may start again! 

WOO HOO to Decatur resident Nancy Wilkinson, who won yet another city award for decorating her yard so extravagantly well for Halloween. All during the month of October her yard was slowly transformed with a new skeleton added here, a tombstone there, a train there, until the night of Halloween it is a joyful scene of horror and whimsey! 
WOO HOO NANCY WILKINSON! Nancy is well deserving of this local award.(photo by Hallelujah Truth)
THE WINNER! Here is Nancy Wilkinson wearing a cowboy hat in keeping with her award winning 2012 cowboy themed Halloween yard decorations. Titled "Boneyard Buckaroos," her choreographed "bad" buckaroos were robbing trains and leading ordinary skeleton lives. You can see one of the train robbers on the skeleton horse behind her. (photo by Hallelujah Truth)
YELLOW BOOTED COWBOY SKELETON.  Nancy Wilkinson deserves an entire blog dedicated to her  to display the extent of her creativity! For now, I will just say BOO! And WOO HOO and Thank you! (photo by Hallelujah Truth)

This Halloween evening, instead of going out to watch the trick-or-treaters, I had the immense privilege of attending Ernie's 72nd birthday party. It was the first time I have ever celebrated an October 31st birthday and this was a fun one. Ernie, who I met at Wednesday night improv classes, decided to host her birthday at Nicola's Restaurant here in Atlanta. 

ERNIE, THE OCTOBER 31ST BIRTHDAY GIRL. Here she is in her intriguing red Halloween mask and floral Asian top looking spectacular. About 40 people gathered at Nicola's to honor her with stories, dance, and champagne toasts! WOO HOO! BOO!  (photo by Hallelujah Truth)

Take a peak at this short video of Nicola as he dances toward Ernie bringing her wine. The birthday celebration heightened from this moment on! WOO HOO!

It is minutes from midnight, and I need to post this blog entry to conclude 15 continuous days of blogging for Kat McNally's Blogtoberfest12. I did it! I plan on returning to daily blogging in December. For now, I am giving myself a WOO HOO!  And looking at TIME for new beginnings!

That's Coffee With Hallelujah! SOUL BLOG with me! What do you have to WOO HOO about! Or BOO about for that matter!

  1. Thanks for the Woo Hoo for my Boneyard Buckaroos. We had a wonderful time last night with all the trick-or-treaters and more-or-less adult visitors. Halloween is always a magical night and this one was no exception. Exhausted but already thinking about next year's creation.
