Halloween Town Comes to Carleton Place –Day 4– A Sexy Nurse and Childhood Memories


A very long time ago Halloween was special when my late sister and I used to trick or treat together. The best candy- as it was told- was on William Street in Cowansville, Quebec, and the kids flocked there because they were giving out something new..bite size chocolate bars. Here is my late sister Robin Anne Knight Nutbrown and our neighbour and long time family friend Brian Rhycard.


Halloween in the 80s and 90s was huge at our home. I am sure my sons Schuyleur and Perry are looking at this picture and saying,“Mum what were you thinking?” Well guys, she probably wasn’t.


Let’s Make Costumes–Wednesday Adams ( if you don’t know who that is–check out the video below)

Another ’90s throwback, and one that’s easy to do with a black wig, black tights, and a black dress with a bit of lace and a white collar. Get out your glue gun.
