I have a lot of holiday decorations, so I don’t buy as much as I used to. But this year, I decided to buy something new, and I settled on a witch I found at an online retailer. I told Rebecca this would be a great addition to her Halloween greeting on her public music page.  Once the witch arrived, we got a big surprise.
