Happy Halloween

HAPPY HALLOWEEN….A couple of years ago I posted a Dick Cheney pumpkin for Halloween. This year, reader GS sends me a cat pumpkin:

In honor and friendship to our true masters, whose priorities are most wise of all.

Quite so, despite my inexplicable decision to Photoshop the picture he sent. Just felt like playing around, I guess.

Needless to say, all the real cats will stay safely indoors tonight. As for us human types, trick-or-treating has dropped to such meager levels in our neighborhood that we’re going to head out to dinner and skip the whole thing this year. Why? Because the neighborhood across the street from us puts on such a spectacular Halloween show every year that kids are drawn to it like a magnet. The rest of us can’t compete anymore.
