What Are You Doing for Halloween?

I am going camping. Well, if you want to call it that. Is it really camping if you have your own private potty, fridge, microwave, flat-screen TV/DVD player, stove w/oven, bunk beds for the kids and separate bedroom with queen size bed? LOL!

I love, love, love, looooove our camper.

We're going with a bunch of friends who also have their own campers (ours is the newest though ) to a campground nearby - seriously it's only about 15 min. away - and partying all weekend. There are fun things to do - costume contest, pumpkin carving contest, chili cookoff, potluck dinner, hayrides, and maybe a DJ.

I've got myself a 12-pack of Newcastle, and my friend Steve has promised me some of his Juenglings, which are kind of hard to find around here and are sooooo good.

The weather today is lovely and about 75. Tomorrow it's supposed to be cooler and rain, but hopefully not all day.

Wish you could join me!

The camper in this photo is not ours, but it's the exact model and year. Ain't it pretty?

That's nicer than my house! Well, not really, but it's beautiful. Camping in the rain is just fine when you have that.

Here in the 'rents house and here in England, I'm doing more than any non-breeder.

Explained before (Leicester time) that I lived in Spooky House on the Road. And when I lived with HM it was more No Money, Can I Have Some of Your Chocs? (tm)

I loved spooky stories as a child.
They were rationed becuase Mum was fed up with waking up to screms.
Of course it turned out that I didn't need stories to wake up screaming and she didn't need a daughter's screams to wake up.

I've reined in.
My intentions I mean,
Just me in my vampire queen costume. And the pumpskin, And the sweeties in a bowl.
It will be sadly tame. Sadly, becaise the 'rents path at the scrag end of October is terrifying in its own right. And I'd love to do a Dad on the local kids (it's here somewhere - he terrified Laura Saunders).

But I'll just be a wampyr.
Pics.
If'n you deserve them

I am going to a dog show where it is a tradition to "dress up" the dogs that are not showing at the time and I don't really dress up my dogs but just in case I have to for a magazine photo op, I have this scenario rigged up for a photo. Its kinda of a lazy costume as one dog doesn't need one.

Trimming the hedges, cutting back the weeds, figuring out whether the banister on the front steps can support the weight of a child.

Have fun Juni.

I'm doing a whole lot of nothing. Staying home tonight, working for a while tomorrow, staying home tomorrow night. Watch some movies, play some computer games, get some sleep.

Which sounds perfect to me.

One child? Your child? Are you staging the area? I just ask 'cause your last sentence is a tease.

Halloween? Nothing much because I did everything I had to do today. I am going to nurse the crick in my back. Listen to a basket ball game, (from the other room, and watch The Simpsons' Tree House of Horror and hand out candy before I eat it all.

Going to my sister's house. The kids have decided she has the best neighborhood for trick or treat.

Juni, how was last night? The wind was insane here...I wondered how you fared in the camper: my place even had a little shaky shaky going on.

Perfect Halloween weather!

The neighbors have gone wild. They have ghosts hanging from their trees and a headless horseman and all sorts of crap. I dread to think what they'll do for Christmas, but I have a feeling all the blinking lights will keep me up nights. They have also invited the entire neighborhood for a block party tonight. Don't know if I'll go or not since they are serving alcohol and I try to avoid the stuff.
