So it’s that time of year again…and it also happens to be one of the highlights of my blogging existence…What am I talking about?  Sindy’s Spooky Writing Challenge of course!  Here’s the first of my stories for this year’s event.  It’s a Tale in Twenty Five (a story in twenty five words or less), so it’s really short…
