WACO Halloween Party 2005

Another Halloween Party has come & gone. It didn't seem as successful as years past.  A good time was still to be had by those brave enough to endure.  In attendance were:  The Grim Reaper, Mr. & Mrs. Safari Guides, Antonio Banderas & Katherine Zeta-Jones (Zorro & Mrs. Zorro), A Surgeon & her Patient, A Hippie From the past, Morticia Adams, Miss Teen Devil, and some regular folk; Oh there was this creepy guy in a butler's suit that seemed to follow everyone with a twitch of his head or a look of his eyes.  He seemed to groan allot.  I guess it could of been from either too much beer or beans.  We ate drank, talked and migrated toward the fire where there was allot of interesting conversation going on until wee hours of the morning.

 

 

And for the guests David Gohring almost brought for dinner...
