We will soon be handing out candy


     Trick or Treat night is on Friday here.  G and I are preparing for the après treating time party.  It’s not going to be easy for her this year since she’s going in for her second cataract surgery today.  However, she does plan to have a good time.

     She just had the other eye done several weeks ago and couldn’t be more pleased with the results.  She can see again!  She’s excited enough that she plans to dress in costume and party hearty.  She knows from the other surgery how fast she’ll recover.

     She has a mask to wear because the only (slight) problem she had with the first surgery, was the bruise under her eye, she had quite a shiner for a week.  Nevertheless, she still plans to bake and decorate a birthday cake for Little D.  I can’t wait to see Little D’s face when she sees her cake.  G is a very clever cake decorator.

     I will take pictures not only of Little D but also of many of our costumed revelers on Friday.  I’m glad I have a 2-gig card for the camera.


Miscellaneous things


     I’ve had my blucigs for almost two weeks now, and in that time, I’ve only smoked four regular cigarettes.  That’s quite a big accomplishment for me. 

     I replaced my dead fog machine yesterday.  I have far too many enablers.  😉

     G has Little D’s Halloween birthday cake all figured out.  She’s making a sheet cake cemetery.  I finally caught Little D’s mother R today to ask how many candles we should put on the cake—a detail we’d forgotten.  DUH.

     While driving yesterday G and I noticed that many of the trees around here have donned their brightly colored fall fashions. 

     The pups are enjoying the chilly weather and are so full of energy they’ve been chasing each other around the house like maniacs.  It’s a wonder there’s a stick left standing here.  Everything in the curio cabinet has wandered to one side from the thundering herd’s floor rattling romps.

     You all have a good day.  If you live where you actually have a pretty fall, do try to get out and enjoy the colors.
