Thoughts from Cathy Halloween FUN!!!

Annas's Legacy     www.annaslegacy.com


Halloween is thought to have been heavily influenced by the Christian holy days of All Saints' Day (also known as Hallowmas, All Hallows, and Hallowtide) and All Souls' Day. Falling on November 1st and 2nd respectively, collectively they were a time for honoring the Saints and praying for the recently departed who had yet to reach heaven. By the end of the 12th century they had become days of holy obligation across Europe and involved such traditions as ringing bells for the souls in purgatory and "souling", the custom of baking bread or soul cakes for "all crysten [ christened ] souls". It was traditionally believed that the souls of the departed wandered the earth until All Saints Day, and All Hallow's Eve provided one last chance for the dead to gain vengeance on their enemies before moving onto the next world. To avoid being recognized by a soul, Christians would wear masques and costumes to disguise themselves, following the lighted candles set by others to guide their travel to  follow for worship the next day. Today, this practice has been perpetuated through trick-or-treating.

"The White Ghost Horse" ... A Manitoba Ghost Story from the Cree Tribe.
A Cree Indian Chief had a very beautiful daughter who was sought after by many brave warriors. There were two suitors who led the rivalry for her hand, a Cree Chief from Lake Winnipegosis and a Sioux Chief from Devil's Lake. The girl herself favored the Cree warrior, and when he brought a beautiful white horse from Mexico as a gift for her father, the man agreed to the marriage. The Sioux chief was enraged by the rejection of his suit. On the day of the wedding, he gathered a war-party and came thundering across the plains toward the home of the beautiful maiden. The Cree chief tossed his lovely bride on top of the white horse and le upon his own gray steed. The couple fled to the west with the rejected Sioux and his war-party on their heels. The Cree Chief doubled back several times and the couple hid among the prairie bluffs. For a time, it seemed as if they had lost the Sioux. But once they were on the plains again, the beautiful white horse was visible for miles, and the war party soon found them. A rain of arrows fell upon the fleeing lovers, and the warrior and his bride fell dead from their mounts. At once, the Sioux captured the gray steed, but the white horse evaded them. One man claimed he saw the spirit of the young bride enter into the horse just before it fled from their clutches. The white horse roamed the prairies for many years following the death of the Cree warrior and his lovely bride. The inhabitants feared to approach the horse, since the spirit of the maiden dwelled within it. Long after its physical body passed away, the soul of the white ghost horse continued to gallop across the plains, and the land where it roamed became known as the White Horse Plain. They say that the spirit of the white ghost horse continues to haunt the prairie and the grave of the young bride to this very day.
HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!! ... Hope you have a great day and an awesome week!!! www.annaslegacy.com

Thoughts from Cathy


Blogger Potato


Hello.  My name is Cathy Collar and I am a Blogger Potato.  I have finally come to grips with my addiction.  Please do not combine me with a similar group of addicts know as the couch potatoes.  I have very little in common with them. I do not sit idly on the couch munching on a pizza while drinking a soda.  My mind is always active, trying desperately to find some piece of information that will make everyone want to read my blog more often than anyone else’s.  I can’t help but wonder what my life would be like if my body was as active as my mind.  I’m sure I would weight less than one hundred pounds and be fit enough to run a marathon or maybe even a decathlon!  Since I know I cannot defeat this addiction, I am going to try my best to use it to the best of my ability to share some giggles, hope and wisdom to those of you who are forced to read it daily by your own addiction to electronic communications.  I hereby swear to make my blogs as entertaining as I can and try very hard not to overblog. 
On that note I should probably end this blog and go read someone else’s.
Okay, now where did I put that bag of potato chips?

Native American Animal Symbols
Snake: Oct 23 – Nov 22
Most shamans are born under this Native American animal symbol. The Snake is a natural in all matters of spirit. Easily attuned to the ethereal realm the Snake makes an excellent spiritual leader. Also respected for his/her healing capacities, the Snake also excels in medical professions. The Snake's preoccupation with matters intangible often lead others to view them as mysterious, and sometimes frightening. True, the Snake can be secretive, and a bit dark – he/she is also quite sensitive, and caring. In a supportive relationship the cool Snake can be passionate, inspiring, humorous, and helpful. Left to his/her own devices, the Snake can be despondent, violent, and prone to abnormal mood swings. Learn more about the Snake totem here.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month


As most of you know October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. I know there are a lot of stories on television and in newspapers of women's heartbreaking, but encouraging stories of survival in the battle with breast cancer. I strongly encourage you to check out Lifetime's original movie: Five. It'll make you laugh, it'll make you cry, but most of all it will make you think. Think about how monthly self checks and yearly mammograms after the age of 40 could save your life. To think of all the pain and heartache you can save your loved ones by taking those 2 simple steps. So talk to your daughters, your mothers, your sisters and make a pact to not only take care of yourself, but to take care of each other.

Thoughts from Cathy

 Anna's Legacy  www.annaslegacy.com
HALLOWEEN FUN!

The Fat Black Cat


I opened the door and there she sat
on my front porch, a Fat Black Cat.
Since Halloween’s not far away
I decided that she could stay
An addition to my fun décor
A Fat Black Cat at my front door.





I really thought by the next day
She would have scampered far away.

But as I opened up the door
She had added to my décor
A big Fat Rat with a pink tail
Of course I let out quite a YELL!
She was not bothered by me much.
She simply said “It’s just my lunch.”


I really thought by the next day
She would have scampered far away
But as I opened up my door
She had added to my décor
A Large Black Spider in a Web
“He’s just a friend,” is all she said.
“He might stay for a day
Or he might simply go away.”

I really thought by the next day
THEY would have scampered far away


But when I opened up my door

They both were there and there was more!

She had procured a great big SNAKE
Dead of course, but still a SNAKE!
“He bothered me.” was all she said
As she daintily cleaned her head.

I really HOPED by the next day
THEY would have scampered FAR away.

But when I Opened up my door
There was more there than before.
A Bat was hanging from the eaves.
She growled and said. “I am not pleased.
I chased him all night through the trees.
He just won’t go. He’s such a tease!”

I really HOPED by the next day
They would ALL have gone far away!

But when I opened up my door
There was a surprise for sure!
The Cat had donned a Pointed Hat
And a cape was draped upon her back.
She smiled at me “Don’t I look dandy?
Maybe I will get some candy?”

Halloween night was finally here!
No one would come to my house this year
I thought as I looked out the door
At my unusual décor.
They would all be scared and run away
That cat had ruined my favorite day?

As I climbed into my bed
Costumed kids danced in my head
At least I’d see them in my dreams..
Then suddenly the doorbell rings!
I jumped and scampered to the door
And there I was surprised once more.
Ghost With Bag Black And White Clip Art

I opened the door and there she sat
The Fat Black Cat with the pointy hat.
Goblins and ghosts petted her fur
They gave her candy as she purred
Your house’s the best I heard them scream.
And as they ran off,  I know I’d seen
What will be MY BEST, HALLOWEEN!
I thought that she was here to stay
But she had vanished the next day
Gone was the Spider and the Bat
Gone was the Snake and the fat Rat
 I really hope she will come back
Next Halloween, my Fat Black Cat!

OPAL LORE
Australian Aborigines believe they have lived in Australia since the dawn of creation. They view the opal as a spiritual stone, and their culture contains a wealth of mythology about opals. They claim the opal was left behind by an ancestor to symbolise his or her presence. One legend claims the Creator used a rainbow to come to Earth with a message of peace to all mankind. At the place where his foot touched the ground the stones became alive with opals, sparkling with all the colours of the rainbow.

Stone Magic!!!!!!! "The Spirit Within"

"Opal Lore"

In the past Opals were used to create invisibility.  The precious stone was wrapped in a fresh Bay Leaf and carried on their person.
( I wonder how many times they got caught before they figured out this didn't work quite as well as they thought?  Of course I am sure they blamed it all on the incompetent Wizard )!  <(;^}}> !  Poor Guy!
