Let the Home Haunting Begin!

A weekend of unearthing boxes and erecting pillars and suddenly a ramshackle cemetery emerged, its entrance guarded by twin ravens, the mythological guides of the dead, perched upon great moldering pillars.

Beyond the fence lie a decaying collection of headstones and grave markers.  Although the crumbling stones seem forgotten, a few solitary blooms scattered among the slowly sinking graves indicate the recent visitation of some kind spirit.

This cemetery will not stand alone for long.  Still to be added is a swampy beach, littered with the remains of a shipwrecked galleon and the bleached, grasping skeletons of pirates, dead in the pursuit of one final hoard of treasure. Those pirates that survive to step inside will quickly find that they’ve trespassed into the Captain’s quarters.

Let’s hope that those brave pirates have time to sample a last jolly mug o’ grog before they find themselves getting too close for comfort with the captain’s daughter!

  1. Looks like fun. The past couple of years, I’ve actually been part of a haunted house (had the pleasure of running the chainsaw last year). Fun but exhausting. Looking forward to going to a friend’s annual party. He usually does it up decoration-wise, as well. Every year he adds something new. I was shocked when the neighbors didn’t complain about the “crime scene” last year on the front lawn.

    Oh, and funny that the link to “captain’s daughter’ takes your reader to the cat o’ nine tails page 🙂

    • I do love that bit of trivia. So next time someone starts singing “What do you do with a Drunken Sailor,” you can get an extra kick out of the response “Put him in the hold with the Captain’s Daughter,” since you know it’s just a bit of old British navy jargon for the cat o’nine tails!

  2. What would an evening with Eva Halloween be without a little double entendre? In fact, I plan to entendre at least three or four times that night. 😉
