Ghosts & goblins... witches & cats... I don't know, I don't really get it. I've just never been creative enough to be really good at Halloween I guess.

My poor children... store bought plastic costumes with the exception of one year. I really believed I had what it would take to pull off an amazing home-made costume that would really make my family proud. My son wanted to be a smurf...my daughter a princess. Seriously...how hard is that?

Their father who was responsible for the neighborhood tour with the children (or as I called it... the begging hike), returned hours later to report that not one person could identify our son as a smurf.

"Did they give him the candy?" I asked.

"Probably more than most kids because they felt sorry for him," he answered.

"Then that makes me a genius!"

I celebrated with a few air high fives and an unidentifiable dance that prompted my family to make a fast exit and review, sort, and sample their buckets of treats!

Proves my point...if you can't win with pride...go for pity!

Happy Halloween!

Happy Friday!

Halloween Delivery...

The orthopedic surgeon I work for was moving to a new office, and his staff was helping transport skeletonmany of the items.

I sat the display skeleton in the front of my car, his bony arm across the back of my seat. I hadn't considered the drive across town. At one traffic light, the stares of the people in the car beside me became obvious, and I looked across and explained, "I'm delivering him to my doctor's office."

The other driver leaned out of his window. "I hate to tell you, lady," he said, "but I think it's too late!"

Carving Pumpkins... 
 Halloween JokeTwick or Tweat...
One Halloween this woman opens her door to find the most adorable little girl, with golden blond Girl Dressed as angelcurly hair and the biggest blue eyes.

She was dressed as an Angel, and was just delightful. The woman said, "what are you supposed to say sweetheart?"

The little girl looks up at the woman and says "Twick or Tweat!"

The woman thinks this is just adorable, and she calls her husband to come to the door. The woman says to the child, "Go ahead, honey, say it just one more time."

Once again the little Angel looks up and says, "Twick or Tweat!"

The husband agrees with his wife, this little Angel is just the cutest thing. The woman picks an apple from the Treat Bowl, shines it up with her apron, and drops it into the little girl's Treat Bag.

The little Angel looks in her bag then looks up at the woman and says, "Thanks a lot lady, you just broke my darn cookies!"

Last week's riddle answer: There were 28 wizards and 35 cats!
