Happy Samhain (sow-en)

The day when the veil between our world and the next is thinnest. Also the beginning of the Celtic New Year. Respect for the dead please. If you have a chance put out some food for them

ee-heh how-nah

Happy Halloween Robbie! I am sitting here at work, dress up as an 80's punk rocker. Everyone at work thought I was a hooker! And I am the only one dressed up, but that is always the way. I don't mind.
Livia is very excited, I am going over there after work to either go trick or treating with them, or maybe hand out treats while they are out. Don't know yet.

Ha! I was a Bond villian at work. There were a lot of people dressed up as well.

Thanks for the swell party dude! The costumes, food and talking were super (as always ;-D) It's not often I get to put on 20 lbs. of jingling bells and try not to set long lacy sleeves alight on a stove. WHheeeee....
