I was going through some photos tonight and found the “Sunset Tree” which I had posted last March or so….
All those crooked limbs just begging for crows and ghosties. Unfortunately, the tree is in our neighbor’s yard. Actually, that’s probably a good thing as I would be tempted to get on the ladder and do some decorating….I can see orange lights, gauzy dangling ghosts with black crepe paper streamers…and a mess of spooky carved Jack-o-lanterns on the ground.
Sadly, we don’t have many children in town. I think there are about 10 of trick or treating age. We’ve had years with no children coming to the door…and one year, a church group brought a van load of children around. Most of these children are home schooled and they go to parties rather than coming around to trick or treat.
We always purchase a bag or two of candy just in case. This year will be no different. We’ll have the candy and the porch light on…and Ernie will be ready to visit with the kids.
