It's no secret that Halloween is my favorite holiday. I also am a closeted Scooby Doo fanatic, it is still one of my favorite cartoons.

Excerpt From "the House With Nobody In It" -Joyce Kilmer
"Whenever I walk to Suffern along the Erie Track, I go by a poor old farmhouse, with its shingles broken... I have never seen a haunted house, but I hear there are such things: That they hold the talk of spirits, their mirth and sorrowings, I know this house isn't haunted, and I wish it were, I do. For it wouldn't be so lonely if it had a ghost or two."
"When owls, bats and ghost are seen. It must be time for Halloween."
"Scooby Doo taught us that the real monsters are humans..and if that isn't deep I don't know what is."
