A Frighteningly Good Time at Hearthscares Ball at James White's Fort

If you missed the Hearthscares Ball, a fundraiser for James White's Fort, you missed a great time. Here are some of the scarily dressed folks we saw there.

Vicki Baumgartner and I had fun guessing who was behind this mysterious mask.

We had decided it was Melynda Whetsel when husband Bob, dressed as Davy Crockett, showed up at her side and confirmed our guess.

Marsha and Duane Grieve made cute lumberjacks.

Cynthia and John Stancil said they were Jelly Bellies.

Michael Foltz as driver Rickey Bobbie was accompanied by wife Judith who made a sensational witch.

Judith, Marie Alcorn (middle), and a mystery woman had their own witchy coven.

Brett Grimm and friend Caroline came in complementary outfits: cow and cow girl!

Moses's sign was an attention-getter.

Rick Russell (center) had on a very scary mask.

While the fabulous Chillbillies took a break, Michael Jackson showed up with some zombies.

The Fort's board (below) posed for a photo. Executive Director Sam Maynard (front row, 3rd from left) had planned to come as James White, but he was too busy getting ready for the party, so he came as a Non Profit Director, complete with tin cup.

The next night I caught up with Sam (this time dressed as James White) and some friends on their way to "Nightmare on Gay Street" at Sapphire. Sam makes a great James White, don't you think?

Accompanying James White were a pirate (Tim Allen), a witch (Julie Koella), and Tippi Hedren from Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds (Karen Kluge).

A frighteningly good time at the Hearthscares Ball--That's what we're having.
