Speechless Sunday:Ring Around the Rosey is Spooky

Real Estate Agent with Marilyn Boudreaux, Century 21 Bono Realty 0912122870 LA

Casper and His Friends Playing Ring Around the Rosey

Ever wonder about this nursery rhyme and the odd lyrics?  

Ring Around the Rosey

Pocket Full of Poseys

Ashes Ashes We All Fall Down

According to the history and origin of nursery rhymes, this rhyme originated from the outbreak of the plague and posey's were supposed to be of a benefit of protection for you, the ashes ashes we all fall down refers to cremation. 

Kind of creepy and that makes the picture  I snapped of these little spooks  playing Ring Around the Rosey even more fitting for Halloween!


Shell Beach Spooks

These spooks playing Ring Around the Rosey can be found in front of one of the many festive homes found along Shell Beach Drive in Lake Charles, LA. 

The leaves have begun to fall leaving the majestic 100 year old trees in front of the home with barren limbs adding to the  haunting decor when the sun goes down.

Shell Beach Drive in Lake Charles, LA is a favorite area for an afternoon drive, walk or run where you can admire some of Lake Charles finest estates with along with a beautiful view of the lake.

Thought provoking picture. There is something conspiratorial about the figures. Well captured.

I absolutely love this very cool. When my son was growing up we used to put a plastic trash can on the porch with candy and tell the kids to help themselves. They would open the lid and out would pop my son. It was great to hear them squeel

Boooooo.....Looks great to me. I am always amazed at the people who decorate for Halloween. There is a Saints game on Haloween night.  The French Quarter starts its Haloween after lunch.

Marilyn, Great picture!

I'm terribly frightened. Well maybe not terribly, maybe a little bit frightened. Okay, not frightened at all, but I like Casper and his buddies just the same.

Marilyn, that is such a cute Halloween decoration.  Maybe the nursery rhyme is a little creepy, but not these little ghost buddies!

Marilyn, I always thought that was a strange rhyme. It never made sense to me … until now. Halloween is such a fun and festive time of year. It’s a great photo that ties in very well with the rhyme.

Eric--I can only imagine the craziness in the French Quarter on Halloween Eve and Halloween for that matter.  Hope we get a little magic on that day and our Saints win too :)

These little spooks are cute arent they....
