What are you going to be for Halloween?

Trick or treat, smell my .... What is a haunted chicken? A poultry-geist. What do ghosts serve for dessert? Ice scream. What kind of mistakes do spooks make? Boo boos. What kind of monster is safe to put in the washing machine? A wash and wear wolf.

So what are you going to be for Halloween? Last year I wore a fake fur coat and painted my face to look like a dog. All of the children at school thought I was cute. The year before I dressed like a clown and painted my face as such, but it seemed to scare the kindergartners. Maybe because they didn't know I was Jenee's mom, under all the make-up. This year I am perplexed as to what to be, but I still have a couple of days.

One girl I asked who is in middle school said she was going to be a Wheaties box of cereal " how ingenious is that? Ashley who is in first grade said she is going to be a cat, Amber who is a kindergartner said she is going to be Aurora, a Greek goddess, and their baby sister is going to be an M&M. How cute is that?

Sarah who is 16 is going to be a raspberry girl. Carly who is 15 said she was going to dress up as a mouse. Alissa who is 16 said she was going to be a princess. Cindy said she is going to be an angel. James who is 15 said he is going be an elf. Wow, this is sounding like a great Halloween. Yoda, Jim said he was going to dress up like. And of course Michael said he was going to dress up like a motocross racer.

All of this reminds me of a not so good Halloween story when I was in fifth grade living in San Diego. My two sisters and I had gone trick-or-treating for a couple of hours. We were pretty exhausted when we were returning at the bottom of the hill to our house. This big sixth-grade boy ran up and grabbed my bucket out of my hand. I saw him, I yelled, but he ran off. I ran up to my house and my mom drove me down to our school to point out the boy. The principal said she couldn't do anything since he didn't have the candy on his person.

Coyote attack

On Sanden Lane, a brave coyote attacked a pygmy goat last Monday morning. The neighbors close by are now all on watch to prevent any further problems. Apparently the coyotes have been around a lot for a couple of days, so be vigilant.
