Halloween in the Cul de Sac
Lots of pictures coming, but short "Dick and Jane" captions...
My normally calm passive fat cat Eng, shows how happy he is with a full display of claws flared
So we took off the hat and had to split his old costume in order to make him a pumpkin. Sigh, I can relate.
Chang and Eng, a pumpkin and a bee! And additional time in purgatory for me.
One happy family! Eng hangs his head in shame, and Chang curses me and my children's children.
And then we set up in the driveway, Eng was sick of it all, and we let him escape to the safety of under the bed, Chang helped hand out treats. My wife was in charge of candy, and Chang and I handed out the bling (Those little glow stick necklaces that make the kiddies safe).
You will have forgotten her, but this is my neighbor Kylie, who loved my Chocolate covered bacon.
And this is Kylie's dog HERCULES. At least Jackie and I will have friends and neighbors in that special corner of purgatory.
My favorite costume of the night, as one of our neighbors has had a series of surgeries over the last year, She had to come as a patient, while her husband came as the doctor... Devil is in the details, heavily padded butt showing through the open back robe, and the catheter bag filled with (she claimed, apple juice). Good humor on the street! And it was great to see her so happy and healthy and HAVING FUN after the long difficult year they have had.
Anyone want to see a post about my talented wife's homemade cheesecake with lemon and orange zest she made for the neighbors post trick or treater weenie roast???
This was a great night all around. I love my neighborhood, and you'll hear more about that night tomorrow!
