Details

We missed Stacey who is having a wonderful visit in New York. Margo's home was a halloween paradise - bobbing eyeballs in a jars, animatronic ghosts and witches, skeleton spiders in giant rope webs and jack-o-lantern bubble lights. Margo presented each member with a stuffed black mouse and goodie bag of candies.
