HALLOWEEN 2000 PARTY PIXS
taken on Halloween October 31, 2000 being on a Tuesday. However, on
some of the pixs there is a file ID with Halloween October 31, 1999 but only
a few and will include them. My bride is
the driving force for the majority of the outside yard decor and inside for
the holidays, whereas I do the brawn stuff and she does the artistic and
intellectual stuff. The pixs taken were archived from a back-up CD and
finally got around to web publishing them. I did not have my
www.portercalls.com up and running in 2000. Back in 2002, I
had a webpage called Porter Family Pictures
that our son Bill Jr., had sub folder for the pictures on his website
Sometime around 2007 or so with the help of Bill, we got my own website
www.portercalls.com up and running when I started making custom
turkey box calls.
We continued the outside decorations and parties until 2006 when my bride
aka Joyce had a massive brainstem stroke and she has made an excellent
recovery considering that type of stroke normally leaves a person dead
and/or in a vegetative state. With our Lords help, she has come a long
way. I still put up our
Christmas yard decor and since 2006 have
cut back about 1/3 or more on the amount of decorations, lights, blow-up
figures, etc. but we still have it looking very nice and festive!
Whew, that was a long introduction and I sometimes get a little side
tracked but that is just my MOO, manner of operation and must be a DNA flaw
because it happens to regularly.....grin if you must!
AROUND THE REFRESHMENT TABLE
A FEW PIXS TAKEN ON HALLOWEEN 1999
As evidenced by the pictures taken in 1999, this was probably our first
Halloween party outside, mostly for the two East coast Huneycutt Grandboys.
Mary Lou and George Hodge, Laura's in-laws were present along with my Mom
and Pop aka Bill and Ann Porter, Laura and Keith Huneycutt.
When I was running the pixs through PhotoShop CS2 that were stored on a
2001 back-up CD, I noticed there were two different size formats and the
1999 pixs were no doubt taken from the first digital camera that I purchased
which was an Olympus not much over 1.4 Meg. in file size.

HALLOWEEN YARD DECOR
There were plenty of small kids to enjoy the Halloween party with the
following that attended: Haywood and Sue Newton along with Brian
and Lisa Newton and their kids, our neighbors Johnny and Pat Hildreth with
their son Bryan and his wife Amy and their son Jason, Tom and Carolyn Kiker
and their son Cody, my Mom and Pop aka Ann and Bill Porter, Wink and Rachel
Myers, Laura, Keith, Travis and Trevor Huneycutt, Mary Lou and George Hodge.
In addition to hot dogs and the trimmings, my bride made a wonderful pot
Chili and Beans which was "off the
chain good." There were plenty of treats for the kids
trick or treat bags as well.
We had a great time Halloween 2000 and 1999 party and continued to do
them until 2005,
which was the last one we hosted due to my bride's stroke in September 2006.
