Grandma Gertie always said there's not a savory dish that can't be made tastier by just a touch of tarragon.

They Did the Mash...The Monster Mash

Frank, as an explorer, and me, the hippie chick
The last time I dressed up for a Halloween party might very well have been in the 1960's. Nonetheless, I did last night to celebrate the holiday at a dance at my apartment complex. I delighted in passing out brownies, with the assurance that I'd baked them myself from a recipe supplied by Alice. Those of a certain age may well remember the famous brownies of Alice B. Toklas. The peace symbol I wore was an authentic one from 1968, given to me by son Steve for Mother's Day that year.
Peace, Love and Happy Halloween

For months Frank and I have been waiting for a chance to try out our moves...and we did in the clubhouse last night. His heavy-tread explorer shoes might not have been ideal for pivoting, but we were able to Mash, foxtrot and Lindy under the strobes.

Frank was dressed as an explorer, so a number of people asked if he were Dr. Livingstone. I erroneously posted an identifying caption, but remembered later that Livingstone was the missionary and Stanley was the explorer who found him.
Here's my neighbors tricking and treating the night away.



  1. Looks like a wild bunch of fun folks, Terry. And I love that you have a vintage peace sign!

  2. Lots of fun memories. You think young! Only way to go.
