    Good morning, Vagabonds. I’ve finally finished reading all my Geographics. There was one especially interesting article on ants with fantastic detailed paintings of them. Now I must tackle the bunch of papers I found in my foyer.

    Good morning all -
    Last night I had occasion to run an errand nearby after dark was went by a few homes here in the neighborhood that were already lit up with Halloween decorations; this is an annual tradition in our neighborhood. A couple houses just had orange miniature lights on the house (or trees, or hedges). But other front-yard decorations were elaborate with tableaus and nighttime lighting. I am curious as to whether other areas have a lot of outside decoration for Halloween….?

    Morning, Vagabonds!
    It seems to be getting more popular. We usually put a jack-a-lantern cutout in the yard and a little scarecrow on the porch.

    Good afternoon Vagabonds.
    Slim, to answer your question from yesterday, yes the Tishtang campground is right on the South Fork of the Trinity River. That was where my son finally got over his fear of swimming (he knew how, he just wouldn’t leave shallow water). All of the other boys swam across the current to the other side of the river and he got tired of being the only one that didn’t.

    Around here the Halloween decorations are hit or miss. There are a few that go all out, and many that do almost nothing. We have an inflatable “haunted house entrance” that we put up in front of our front door. It has ghosties and ghoulies hanging from the various windows. My next door neighbors have a graveyard in their front lawn. No cute epitaphs, though.


    When my son was a teen, he always dug a shallow pit in the garden next to our front door. He would stuff a trash bag with some newspapers and then cover it with the dirt to make it look like a mounded grave. He had bought a Styrofoam headstone and wrote an epitaph on it – something about the deceased swearing he would be back. Then he took a severed forearm and hand that he had bought in a Halloween shop and shoved it into the appropriate spot on the “grave”. Sometimes we had a small cauldron of dry ice smoking next to it. Some little kids didn’t like coming to our front door.


    One year when Michael had to work on Halloween I took photos of all of the kids that came to our door for candy so he could enjoy them, too. I still have those pictures.

    When we lived near Riverside, CA we were in a very large tract of homes (over 300) which was off the main roads and relatively safe for children to be walking around. People from all over the county used to truck their kids to our neighborhood for Trick or Treat. We would have hundreds every Halloween night. When we moved to Victorville, we had a maximum of about 13 in each of the 4 Halloweens we were there, and we knew all of them from the neighborhood. One year it was zero. I ate a lot of “leftovers” that year….

    Good day Vagabonds.
    .
    As to Florchi’s question, like JanCin said it’s hit and miss. lots of inflatable ghosts, haunted houses, and the like. I have even seen an inflated spider on a porch roof.

    I was off the net for a few days, the reson being I was hit with a scam claiming to be the FBI and you’ve been caught downloading illegal material from web sights. There’s isn’t much you can do about it. It’s referred to as a root, well something root, because it attacks the roots of the computer system. All you can do is have it removed at a computer store.
    .
    Well that’s the bad news.

    May your pleasures be manys, your trobles few.
