Halloween Again? Already?

Admittedly, this photo of RR, The World's Best Behaved Child, is almost one year old, and since she's only four that amounts to a lot. Still, beautiful children are beautiful children, and Halloween is almost here again.

Which brings us to this morning's sermon, children. Is anyone sick to death of Halloween? Is there anyone else who is feeling like the grinch who stole all the pumpkins? Does anyone wish they were in some other country instead of knowing they'll be out on the stoop again in their silly fish hat, laughing, enjoying seeing the hundreds of excited kids in costumes walking hesitantly up the front steps to get their candy, the little girls as fairy princesses and Princess Leias and the little boy Darth Vaders and even a few George Bushes and Guv'na Arnolds?

Why is Plotnik tired of this holiday? Hold on, he's trying to remember. After typing that last paragraph, he's actually starting to look forward to it again. Does this happen every year? Probably.

The very worst thing, however: two full weeks ago they were already playing Christmas music at Costco.

One of my favorite photos! She is a beauty indeed. Funny, we both wrote about the same thing today, from different perspectives, of course.

Last year I sat in my apartment with a bowl of candy and a jack o' lantern outside the door. But as you might guess, nobody came and I had to eat all the candy myself. I'd much rather be in the fish hat!

I'm hoping Plottie goes back to read added comments! (with a show opening, I've gotten behind on blog reading)Duck-nik needs to tell BZ about the time no one came to her apartment on Halloween and how she and her roomate went door to door to hand out the candy.

Yes, JJ-aka-pp, Plotnik reads all, hears all, knows all. Ducknik remembers, but only vaguely.
