  2. My mom used to make pudding pies, but never cool Halloween ones. I like that idea, now if I could only find crushed Oreo's in the store, they seemed to have disappeared around here.

  18. Good Witch of the South, I've been trying to comment on your Halloween treats, but some "spooks" must have interfered because on Halloween, my computer totally froze up in the evening, and could not even open up any blogs...even my own.
    Totally had to shut it off...even did a major defrag, now it's working somewhat better, so I can catch up w/ comments!

    Love your divine witch photo:DDD
