The Daley Weekly

October 20, 2021



It's hard to believe we're already two thirds of the way through October. The temperatures here in Tahoe have made the shift from fall to winter so perhaps it's time to dig out heavy sweaters and winter coats. I don't mind the arrival of cooler temps and even snow. We need snow for a healthy environment so as far as I'm concerned bring it on. 

Be sure to scan down toward the bottom of this newsletter for a fun Halloween idea.

Also in the body of the newsletter is a new mini mystery. Clues will be presented on October 6th, 13th, 20th, and 27th. Collect the clues all month and then enter the rafflecopter which will be provided on 10/27.

Speaking of fall, and of course Halloween, I want to remind everyone that I have a Halloween Page on my website. You can access the Amazon page for any Halloween book by simply clicking on the cover of the book you are interested in.

As always, be sure to enter for a chance to win this weeks gift card giveaway. The entry form is provided toward the bottom of the newsletter. 

Remember, Rafflecopters are only live until the end of the day on Thursday. The winner is selected on Friday.

Ten friends all got together for a night of trick-or-treating and pranks. By the end of the evening one friend had been picked up by local law enforcement for egging the math teachers home, one had eaten so much candy they ended up sick, and one friend was bitten by a bat and had to get rabies shots. Use the clues presented all month to figure out which friend was arrested, which got sick, and which was bitten by a bat.

Costumes they wore:
Headless Horseman
Grim Reaper
Cat Woman


The cat woman, grim reaper, and skeleton all ran off when the cops showed up and were not arrested
The skeleton did not eat too much candy and neither the witch or cat woman was bitten by a bat
Daniel did not get arrested nor was he bitten and Ella did not get sick
The friend who was arrested did not come dressed as Frankenstein, Dracula, or a mummy

Pumpkin Peppers
I found this photo on Pinterest and I have to say this is the easiest fun to make and eat Halloween food I've come across. You can fill the pumpkin peppers with anything with a solid consistency. A ground beef, onion, garlic, and rice mixture would be a fun way to serve a holiday themed meal. Or maybe pumpkin pepper tacos with ground beef, cheese, lettuce, and tomato layers. 

We will be doing Thanksgiving themed giveaways on Kathi Daley Group page again this year. Ken and I will be traveling for much of the month so rather than a daily giveaway we are going to do giveaways every Wednesday. All you need to do to enter is hop on over to the group page and find the post with this graphic. Comment on the post letting us know what you are grateful for, and every Wednesday we'll choose one winner from all who comment to receive a $25 Amazon Gift Card (Gift cards sent from Amazon US in US currency) If you aren't a member of the group page here is the link to sign up:
