Spooked and Haunted

So I’ve been really busy getting married to my fiance… Excuse me, WIFE, Laura, this past month. (The ceremony was short and simple at a court house and the “reception” was at Long Horn Steakhouse.) Likewise, I’ve also been busy with my job and preparing to take on a new class at the end of October. My busy-ness isn’t going to slow down any time soon, BUT, since October is here, I feel the need. The need for HALLOWEEN!

Crypt-ober: All Booked Up (Tales from the Cryptkeeper)

I love to read. It’s one of my favorite ways to pass the time. I love reading so much that I often carry a book with me wherever I go. A good book can make a long car trip into a fun adventure, a suspenseful mystery, or a chilling horror story. The right book can really spark the imagination. Of course, not everybody likes to read. Take today’s main character, Greg. Can the Cryptkeeper give us a story to die for? Let’s find out. This is All Booked Up.
