Happy Six Days After Halloween!

( Fake heron dreams of flight but must remain still, little orange poppy, succulent in the sun, fake rooster dreams of 'cock-a-doodle-doing' but must remain silent.)

Even though Halloween has past us by like a ghost in the wind, I want to share my Halloween pumpkins.

These two are David's pumpkins. I think of his pumpkins as crazy-pumpkin and hungry-pumpkin.

These two are mine. Let me specify, one of them is an owl but the other one is not a cat, it is a raccoon.

 Carving pumpkins is one of my favorite parts of Halloween, especially now that I am way too old to trick-or-treat. While in the car on Halloween, I passed a group of younger teenagers walking around trick-or-treating. One of them gleefully yelled 'Happy Halloween!' It was very cute because his joyful cry perfectly captured that giddy excitement I use to feel when I was a kid on Halloween. Halloween use to carry a certain sense of freedom that as a kid I would not experience on an ordinary day. Out late, getting free candy, dressed in a delightful disguise.

(Mysterious bridge that probably leads to a make-believe land, little red tomato glowing like a ruby orb, kitty paw!, unique daisies)

  I recently had a good idea for an invention. The invention would be called 'Boot Lids.' These would be lids that you put on your boots to prevent spiders from crawling into them and making webs. Sometimes during the Fall when spiders are creeping and crawling in every nook and cranny, it is unsettling to wriggle one's foot into a boot. You never know what sort of eight-legged creature is lurking at the toe of your boot. With Boot Lids, the boot wearing consumer can rest assured that their toe will not make contact with an angry (or more likely frightened) spider!
