Halloween in Watonga OK

What a weekend!
We had guests at the B&B this weekend, friends of Dr. Spencer. They were from Bedford, Texas. We got out the Desoto and drove through Roman Nose Park and then Andy took them on a guided tour of the Three Springs area. The weather was perfect, the air clean and fresh smelling. In the afternoon we went to town and stopped by the Whirlwind Winery and to see the Liberty Theatre and the work Andy has done on it. Saturday night we all went to a Halloween costume party at the Spencers' home. It was MOST FUN -- lots of good food, fun people, interesting costumes, and KAREOKE! There were scary, funny, sexy, and original costumes -- my favorite was Popeye and Olive Oyl. When Andy gets done working on the theatre today, I'll put him to work loading pix onto the Chaparral Retreat Facebook page. I didn't get too many pics -- I hit a button on the camera somehow and it went to video, then I couldn't see well enough to find the button to get it back to photos. Oh well, I'm sure lots of others took pictures. I hope the incriminating ones aren't posted publicly!

Unfortunately, we missed the Rolling Stones Halloween party in Dallas !! SEND PICTURES! We're going to have to figure something out in future years to be able to attend both parties! Or maybe alternate. Who knows. We hate to miss either but we can't be in two places at once! I'd also like to do a haunted forest (for adults) in our back woods some Halloween, but don't want to compete with Dr.'s party. We'll just have to see how the holiday falls next year and make a two-day event out of it if need be!

Just in time for Halloween!

The weather has turned cool and it feels like Fall. We had a little bit of rain last night and hope for more this evening.

We had a busy weekend last weekend, with visitors in town to ride the mountain bike trails at Roman Nose State Park. Also, a young couple from Oklahoma City, celebrating their anniversary. I concocted a new drink for breakfast -- I call it an "appaloosa" instead of a mimosa. It is pineapple/orange juice topped off with Whirlwind Winery's Honey Apple wine. I didn't have any champagne and wanted to serve something special with breakfast, so there it is. We served french toast with an apple/cream cheese/brown sugar & Cinnamon sauce.

This weekend is Halloween party weekend. The house is decorated. We have guests for the weekend, so we have to miss the Rolling Stones party in Dallas. Bummer!
