As anyone who knows me well can confirm, I love Halloween. I love to pull out that ‘Tickle Trunk’ of sorts and figure out just what I should wear. Actually, that pic on the left is from a Halloween celebration I had with one of my classes in the middle of August…why limit the fun to the end of June? Or February? Or October?
Well, this year it’s like the All Hallows Eve grinch snapped through and stolen my pumpkin. I thought it would be great to dress up again, get the dogs ready, and wait for some trick’or’treaters. That was, until, I was advised that it would be a better idea to put up my Beware of Dog sign and turn the lights off.
Last year was more fun. At the time, I lived in the brightly-lit part of town which was frequented by many costumed kids; these days, I do not. I thought giving out handfuls of treats was great. Wouldn’t you have smiled? Even though I was dressed as a witch?
…I’m not sure what I would have put on Sophie, but I guess I’ll figure that one out next year…
