HALLOWEEN RIDE, A GREGORY GREEN ADVENTURE

Welcome. I'm so happy you stopped by today. We have a special treat for you.  Enjoy.

QUESTION: If the witch’s broom
could bring you anywhere in the world, where would you want it take you?



Gregory Green: Since the broom is magical, I wonder if it
could bring me under the sea so I can breathe. I’d be able to see mermaids,
sharks, whales, and all kinds of sea creatures. And then, way out in the ocean,
it could land me on a real pirate ship. Maybe even the Black Pearl with Captain
Jack Sparrow! He’s the reason why I dressed up as a pirate this year for
Halloween.



Sammy the Teddy Bear: The
moon! I have friends who live there. Actually, I have friends everywhere.
*whispers* Friends that Gregory doesn’t even know about. That’s just one of my
many secrets. *winks* My moon friends come to visit me when they can, but they
always say I need to come up there to see their home, and boy do I want to.
They also make the best cheese. Yum!



Elaine Kaye, Author: I would love the broom to take me to
Oahu, Hawaii because I lived there in the late '60s for about ten years. It
would be neat to see how things have changed since then. And, of course, I’d
love to make several trips to Waikiki Beach. 
When I was younger, I would go to beach
every weekend to tan on the white sands and stare out at the endless ocean. I’d
like to do that again. Now, if the broom could take me back in time, I’d like
to see Elvis play at the Honolulu International Center Arena for his world
tour. I saw that performance, and it’s my greatest memory from Hawaii.



Now, it’s
your turn! Where would you want to go on the witch’s broom?






NEW RELEASE:






BLURB: One Halloween night,
Gregory and his teddy bear Sammy go trick-or-treating, hoping for lots and lots
of candy. But Sammy is scared of everything and is constantly asking, “What’s
that?” Gregory gets annoyed until one of those things turns out to be a flying
broomstick. And this broom wants them to go for a ride. Where will it take
them?

  1. I found a poem a few months ago about Halloween and my trip on a broomstick......will post it at Holloween.
    Needless to say I would love to take a trip again to US as I spent many lovely times there and it goes without saying would love to visit my son in Spain.

    Great post Beverly enjoyed the read.
    Yvonne.

    1. Great, Yvonne. I'll be watching for your Halloween post. Sounds like fun. I hope you get to visit your son and also to come back to the US, wheather on a witch's broom or an airplane. If you do, be sure and let me know. Maybe we can meet.

  2. I'd want it to take me to New Zealand, especially if it could do it quickly. Such a long flight...

    1. Maybe the witch's broom would be fast, Alex. I bet a witch could go at what ever speed they wanted to. Happy flying.

  5. If I had a witch's broom, I'd fly to Brooklyn, New York. I'm not crazy about big cities, but my mother was born in Brooklyn. I'd love to visit the places she visited and see where she lived. Maybe I have kinfolks there to meet, too.

  6. I'd go to Atlantis, as long as the broom brought me back.

    2. That's be an amazing trip. And I'm sure the broom would stick around to bring you home.

  7. I'd dig to Hawaii, but I think I would fly back to ABQ, NM. Four years was not enough and I really miss that town.
