Yay! Halloween has finally come! The house is ready. Withchs, bats, and crows in the windows.
The great pumpkin sits by the gate. Renaldo greets the children, hanging around and looking for any candy handout. Interestingly enough, the first trick or treater was not a child, but our neighborhood cat, Nikki.
Fotunately, I had some extra kitty treats for her.
I’m dressed to kill as the Dread Pirate Roberts. I have also been carving pumpkins all weekend: designing, hollowing, and carving 10 pumpkins out of 14. And for this, I have received one very sore wrist as my reward, but well worth it. Fortunately, a friend had come over to help. So, introducing 10 little Jack-O-Lanterns:
The fifth little Jack-O-Lantern is a familiar skull and next to him a ghost’s ship crawls. The seventh Jack-O-Lantern is a raven, its black eyes piercing the soul. The eighth Jack-O-Lantern is a terrible spider, creeping and weaving it deadly web. The ninth Jack-O-Lantern is that of a bat, taking flight into the night.
The tenth and final Jack-O-Lantern is that of an enchanting scene, one of a dragon and a castle of old. Ten little Jack-O-Lanterns, candles flickering bright. Each had a tale that was told and I hope you have a wonderful Halloween night.
