Front Yard Frights

It's coming, and there's nothing you can do to stop it. Halloween, that is.

"The kids love it," said Marlene Selker. So why not embrace it. Her front is yard adorned with ghosts, webs, and her mother visiting from Germany. "They don't have Halloween in Germany?" she was asked. "No, not really," she said. "Well, maybe you can start it when you go back, show them how it's done!," she was asked. "Yes," she laughed. Of course, the ghosts in Selker's yard weren't exactly frightening. "That's how far we go, I don't like it too scary," she said.

For something a little more jolting, there's the Narvais household, which is covered with creepy crawlers. "I don't know what to say about my spiders," laughed Elisa Narvais. Her enthusiasm is so great, it's grown out of control. "You've taken over the neighbor's yard!," commented a reporter. "I needed a cemetery, so I said, "You have the cemetery," she laughed.

This morning, the grim reaper scared her husband out of the shower, while the mummy laughed in the front yard. But the crown jewel, the piece de resistance, the creme de la creme, was inspired by last year's scariest movie, 'The Ring'. A long-haired torso is seen coming out of her big-screen TV. "That's freaky," said the reporter. "Yes," she laughed. "I just finished it. My mom saw it and said how real it looks!," she laughed.

So happy Halloween Lubbock, but beware, you never know what's lurking in your neighbor's yard.
