"What Happens When You Run Out Of Halloween Ideas"
The neighbors complain that I'm too big to be coming to their doors
with my Trick or Treat bag.
Too bad I don't drink anymore.
Alcohol really helped my Halloween enthusiasm.

It's just some flotsam and jetsam from the back of the closet.

My sister sent us this note"
"I am going to wear a costume
to hand out tricks or treats to the neighborhood kids as I usually do,
however, this year I'm going to have to make do
with half of one costume and half of another, since money is tight.
I have part of a "Grim Reaper" suit and half of a duck outfit
so I'm going as....... 'The Grim Duck'.
Happy Halloween! Love, Val"

Misty was sort of a Dolly Parton,
and I was some kind of gangster/dentist.
