Here's mud in yer eye-centennial.

I'm impressed with myself.

Honestly, that does not happen often. I am actually impressed with myself.


I don't always follow through with personal projects unless someone's standing over me with a deadline, a whip and a scowl -- I am far too distractable.

But in this case, I began our little online pub for fun in late June of last year and it turns out I am not only still keeping it running but I am at this very moment writing my 200th entry.



That's a two, a zero and then another zero.


1,000,000 minus 999,800.


It's really nothing, I guess. Lots of other Hallowe'en and Horror blogs have been around for years and have hundreds and hundreds more posts.

But for our quiet little Hallowe'en gathering spot, I think it's a pretty special moment. One that should send the regulars into night-long bouts of dancing and drinking.
So I am taking this chance to once again call upon every one of you...

If you have any pictures, stories, poetry, songs, personal artwork, comments, reviews or anything else related to Hallowe'en and Horror that you would care to share or wish to discuss here at the S&P, please send them along using the address you'll find after clicking View My Complete Profile (somewhere over there to the right). I want you to feel welcome and free in here.
Longtime friends and family, if you have pictures/stories of Hallowe'en's gone by, please don't hesitate to send them. There are a few costumes and Hallowe'en memories I can recall well but for which I have no pictures. How about it? The more embarrassing, the better!
And to our new friends, loyal pubgoers, please feel free to bring your memories and imagery to the bar as well... as I wrote last year, I want this to be a place for all of us to gather to enjoy a shot of Autumn, to chat about our common love for the October Country, to share the utter joy that is Hallowe'en.
Thank you for your patronage and your friendship.

Happy 200th Post, you ol' Skull & Pumpkin.
