Hallowe'en

```````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````
"Folks think a witch who has familiar spirits
She could call up to pass a winter evening,
But won't, should be burned at the stake or something..."
from THE WITCH OF COOS, by Robert Frost
****************************
Damn, I am a ham...gotta give the folks what they expect a witch to look like!

Happy Hallowe'en, and no that's not a mistake.
"This is the old Celtic feast of Samhain.
It is the feast of the dead and was Christianized as All Hallows' Eve, the eve of All Saints' Day.
It is a fire festival in recognition of the end of the summer and the beginning of winter.
In ancient Manx and Irish Tradition, Hallowmas was regarded as the beginning of a new year."

Boo....!

Oh! We completely forgot to come trick-or-treating by you! Kelly was a rodeo clown.
