Bob and George In the House
This red two story craftsman on the 300 block of East Jefferson is not only one of my favorites houses in the area, but it is also home to two of the most popular scaries each Halloween: Bob and George. Bob is the black and grey monster on the left, George is the clown on the right. Bob made his premiere a couple of years ago (from the aisleways of T.J.Maxx, as I understand), and George the clown joined him last year. It only takes a short time for a Halloween tradition to be born here in Lincoln Park, so there you have it.
Bob and George came out of hibernation today, as you can see from the photo. Please join me in welcoming them back to the red house of Lincoln Park.
Count down to Halloween: 3 more days.
Oh, and here's a quiz: What color did the red craftsman used to be painted?
