Like Day and Night

 Day and Night

By day the Mansion is inviting, delightful even.  The grounds are lovely, including the abandoned pond.  We've gathered, done the tour, found our rooms, and had a truly scrumptious dinner.  All seems peaceful, lighthearted.

But I'm a newbie, and it's hard to ignore the stories from the previous Haunted Mansion Retreats.  Spirits haven't been shy here in the past, and they're likely not going to be shy tonight.  I suspect this weekend will make "believers" of us all.

Not surprisingly, the group is huddled together in the lounge, chatting happily, drinking, blogging, and seemingly avoiding going off on their on.

I've taken a room on the infamous third floor as a public service to my planned roommate--I'm sparing her from my snoring.  I may regret this.

Who will be the first to head off to bed?  Or will we avoid bedtime all together and entertain each other gathered together in the lounge until the sun comes up?

Wish us luck!

Wickedly Yours,
Fran Friel
