Only seven





Only seven trick-or-treaters this year. But a five year old did tell his mother to tell me that we had good jack o'lanterns, which I was glad to hear. It was fun to carve them.

The smiling fella is copied from an October 1926 Good Housekeeping (one of the ads), and the other a product of my retro brain. I think he looks the part, too.

I hope you had a happy Halloween. Ours was good...and I've got lots of roasted pumpkins seeds. A nice dividend from the pumpkins!

That's about the amount we had, seven different groups of kids. One group even came during the ten-minute downpour we had! Despite my wife's decorating effort, our block just didn't have much going on. You'd think with the media and commercials emphasizing Halloween like never before that it would translate into more trick or treaters.

I like your blog this time of year; it's definitely *the* time for you! :)

Thanks. :-) I do love fall; my favorite season, without a doubt.

(But we had seven kids, not seven groups of kids!)
