Halloween Down Under

Although most people here think Halloween is an over-hyped American holiday corrupting the youth of Down Under-lands, they're always keen to join in on a Halloweeny drinking session or pumpkin carving, and they typically find out the latter is surprisingly enjoyable (example: Steve last Halloween). This year we're doing it proper style...started off with staying up late to watch Exorcist last night, pumpkin carving at the hostel Tuesday night, another at work lunchtime Wednesday, going to see 1408 later that night, Halloween drinkies Friday night, and perhaps more drinkies Saturday night. Bring it on! The only thing missing is Linus in the pumkpin patch:(

Happy Hauntings Ya'll!!

We had ZERO trick-or-treaters, oh well.

My dad used to go trick-or-beering in his younger days --while dressed in drag!

Have to chuckle at that. Did he ever get any beer?

Loads! We were in a trailer court and most all the families there were young military from Ft Rich. He was smart enough to have a buddy drive him around so he wouldn't stagger all over.
