At Moultonborough the other night EVERYONE was dressed up and with very few duplications. Tonight I had a great time further south and the only one dressed up was the librarian, Kelly of Green Gables, but it did not matter. The kids and their care providers had a great time. I was asked for more Scooby Doo and less Harry Potter as the audience was going to be young, and it was. I told a bunch of silly slightly scary stories that had the trustees laughing with surprise and the kids giggling with delight. This goes to show what I have thought all along: It is really not about scaring people, it is about having fun.
And talking of fun, Steve Blunt showed up at one of my performances and we jammed a little before I started on the stories, with me banging my drum and Steve blazing away on the harmonica. I am hoping that there is a picture of that somewhere that I can share. And Steve gave me a link to his new video at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wHDkYTFx-2M So why not check THAT OUT for FREE! Steve Blunt is a consummate professional - singer songwriter, historical entertainer, and performer for all ages. He confided in me that he also tells the odd tale or two, but don't say I told you!
Now remember: whilst you are out "trick or treating" remember to be silly, be safe, and have fun. And, whatever you do, do NOT eat The Black Bubble Gum!
