We no longer have kids of a Halloweenish age, but daughter Dinah is taking Theatrical design & likes to build stuff. So we ended up with 5 jack-o-lanterns & a truly spooky corpse in a coffin which actually scared the little kiddies. It can be seen in the top picture just behind the railing & there's a close-up below. The kids all managed to overcome their terror enough to run up and get candy, though.

Dinah has baffled the medical profession by coming down with this strange condition. (below) She would join a support group, but she'd also be the only member!

Winter hardly existed this year, but it made a brief appearance between Xmas & New Years. The train tracks near our place can seem very rural.

Here I am being lured out on a "healthy" winter walk.
