Happy Halloween
« on: October 31, 2009, 12:36:07 PM »
The kids will have temperatures in the mid 40's for Trick-or-Treating here tonight, dry but very windy.  It feels like Halloween with fallen leaves everywhere.  I hope everyone has fun.  Don't eat too many of those little candy bars!

Dan, I think the idea for orange and black together came from you a while back.  If cactus is part of Halloween in your neck of the woods, then let's see it!  It would be fun to see scenes from all over the place.

Jorge, I bought that a while back when prices were higher.  It's a Stromberg Carlson.  I've been seeing a lot of orange ones on eBay lately.

By the way, the leaves came from my front yard (I picked out the best ones).  There are plenty more where those came from!  We had gusts to 40 miles per hour last night and sustained about 10-15 today.  Hopefully my neighbor will get them all when the wind finally settles.  :)

Very nice, Dennis.  It looks like an old telephone company advertising image. 

Happy Halloween to all!

Happy Halloween from Wisconsin.  Anybody watching "Halloween" today?

Nice shot, thanks Dan.  Trick-or-Treat is over here on the East side of town.  I had just over 70 kids come to the door.  Looks like I'm going to have to munch the left-overs! 

The Municipality blows a whistle to start the Trick-or-Treating at 6:00PM and then again to end it at 8:00PM.

"Casper the friendly ghost. The friendliest ghost you know. Though parents fright, and, begin with fight, the children all love him so..... He always says "Hello", and, he's really glad to meet ya. No matter where they go he's kind to every living creature. Grown-ups don't understand, but, children all love him so. The kids all know that he loves them so.

Happy Halloween to all.  We've had an unusually slow year of trick or treaters, don't know why the slowdown this year.  I mean, what's not to like, you get to go to everyones house and most of them give you free candy.
