Well, this is it. The big day! It’s hard to believe this Halloween month is already almost over, and yet I can’t wait until I can post a picture of anything I want … 🙂
If you go to my Flickr site, You’ll see this photo of a very well-known family crypt in Green Lawn Cemetery; it’s not only the largest private crypt in Columbus, not only the resting place of a rich and prominent Columbus family, but also … it’s supposedly haunted!
From Andy Henderson at Forgotten Ohio (that link will take you to a page devoted to this crypt) “They say that, if you knock on the mausoleum’s door, the spirits will respond with a knock of their own–and, if they’re particularly active, a more substantial manifestation.”
Well, neither my friend Susan nor I knocked. We didn’t need to; for the first time I’ve ever seen, the inner door beyond the gates was ajar! I don’t know why, but I don’t look a gift horse in the mouth. I DO, however, most certainly look a gift mausoleum in the door. Or, uh, something.
So here it is, the interior (or part of it, anyway) of the Hayden Mausoleum:
As you can tell, I’m pretty excited about finally getting a decent peek inside.
And now for the musical portion of our program, what else for today but
the Citizens of Halloween with “This Is Halloween.”
And here’s the video of it, because it just doesn’t get any better than this.
Finally, here is my Halloween “Mix” for 2007 – really, it’s just every song I’ve posted this month, plus a few extra goodies thrown in.

Thanks for all the fun this month, everyone – I enjoyed every post I read, every comment I read, every song I downloaded … I appreciate both my visitors and my fellow bloggers.
