One there was a little boy who wouldn’t say his prayers,– An’ when he went to bed at night, away up-stairs, His Mammy heard him holler, an’ his Daddy heard him bawl, An’ when they turned the covers down, he wasn’t there at all! An’ they look for him in the attic , and on the roof no less,An’ seeked him up the chimbly-flue, an’ ever’-wheres, I guess; But all they ever found was his pants an’ roundabout:– An’ the Gobblins will get you If you don’t watch out! An’ one time a little girl would always laugh an’ grin, An’ make fun of ever’ one, an’ all her blood-an’-kin; An’ once, when there was “company,” an’ ol’ folks were there, She mocked them an’ shocked them, an’ said she didn’t care! An’ just as she kicked her heels, an’ turned to run an’ hide, They was two great big spooky things a-standin’ by her side, An’ they snatched her through the ceilin’ ‘fore she knew what she’s about! An’ the Gobblin’s will get you If you don’t watch out! An’ little Orphant Annie says, when the blaze is blue, An’ the lamp-wick sputters, an’ the wind goes woo-oo! An’ you hear the crickets quit, an’ the moon is gray, An’ the lightnin’-bugs and dew is all squenched away,– You’d better mind your parents an’ your teachers fond an’ dear, An’ cherish them that loves you, an’ dry the orphant’s tear, An’ look after the pore an’ needy ones that clusters all about, Or the Gobblins will get you If you don’t watch out! By The Penny Hoarder Once upon a time, little ghosts, goblins and witches came out on Halloween in search of treats to fill their brown paper sacks. No more. Times have changed and with those changes much of the magic that was Halloween is no more. For me, sitting on the front porch of Amos and Eunice’s house and listening to Amos tell the story of Little Orphant Annie was the best thing about Halloween. The story was about goblins but there was also a moral to the story and it’s as relevant today as it was those long years ago. Read it to your children or grandchildren and share with them the magic that was once Halloween.By James Whitcomb Riley Little Orphant Annie’s come to our house to stay, Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Around the WebIf You Have Ringing Ears Do This Immediately (Ends Tinnitus)Healthier LivingMd: Do This Immediately if You Have Diabetes (Watch)Blood Sugar BlasterHave an Enlarged Prostate?

The Baltimore Ravens head coach made the 45-minute drive from Baltimore to support Crean as he tries to become the next member of the family to win a championship.“It’s just really exciting for the family and everything,” Harbaugh said. “It’s been a crazy year. It’s been a great ride, so if Tom can pull off a miracle and get to the Final Four and maybe win the thing, wouldn’t that be something?”Crean is married to Harbaugh’s sister, Joani. The family experienced euphoria and heartbreak simultaneously when Harbaugh’s Ravens beat his brother Jim’s San Francisco 49ers in the Super Bowl on Feb. 3. For now, though, football takes a backseat to basketball.Harbaugh said he likes how much of a fight the Hoosiers put up in their games, and referenced the 58-52 win over Temple on Sunday in the Round of 32 as an example. The Owls led for much of the game before Indiana pulled out the win in the final minutes.The Hoosiers have a tough route to the Final Four, Harbaugh said, with Syracuse and either Marquette or Miami standing in their way.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“I love the team,” Harbaugh said of Indiana. “I love the way they play. The way they fight. It’s going to be a tough game. Syracuse is playing great. It’s a tough little group of four here. It’ll be interesting to see how it goes.”Harbaugh spoke to Crean on Wednesday morning. He said his brother-in-law was up all night watching game film, a feeling to which he said he can relate.Harbaugh said some members of the family will be in Washington to see the game, but his parents will watch their son-in-law lead his Hoosiers on television at home.Almost two months after reaching the top of the NFL, Harbaugh is watching his brother-in-law try to become the second champion in the family.“Tom does a great job. He’s an unbelievable leader,” Harbaugh said. “The players love playing for him. He’s got a bunch of good guys.” Commentscenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
