This close to Halloween the topic of haunted houses in Maine always is ripe for some blog posting.
A home for sale with a reputation of moans, groans, chains and howls generated from within the real estate hits every buyer differently.
Because thank goodness none of us are clones, duplicates except for a very small percentage of split eggs happening at birth.
Some say cool when the talk of spooks come up. They have seen the Chainsaw Massacre, Freddie Krueger and Murder On Elm Street , Rocky Horror Picture Show movies dozens of times.
And since Halloween is about story telling, trick or treat with tale sharing, yarn spinning should happen.
Story time on Active Rain to tie in with the sticks and bricks but with a twist.
Snow White becomes a REALTOR, herds the dwarf household into list, market, sell (repeat).
Every successfull real estate agent, broker, REALTOR carried a big stick.
Wilma and Betty, real estate agents get a job outside the stone houses.
Trick or treat and hope your Halloween is special, filled with fun and games.
And lots of kids getting pretty wired on sugar to entertain your neighborhood.
We all remember the tramping door to door ourselves and with our own little crop of goblins. And which neighbor gave the best treats. Had the most steps or effort needed to get to that long stairway up onto the long dark porch. And answered the door with a costume, surprise and scared the knees shaking monster crusing the neighborhood for something good to eat.
Turn about is fair play and kids grow up into adults who return the favor to the new field of crazies, zombies, warlocks, witches, wolfmans, princesses and ghosts under four feet tall that knock knock knock.
If you leave your light on and tell the world you are here to play the game. Have a bowl ready, willing and waiting by the front door that pretty much only gets used this one big orange and black holiday of the year.
Put in the most effort in the decorating, hand outs and helped build the local spirit of Halloween.
Maine, big state, less people, you can unplug and recharge here.
