One of our charming neighbors, dressed as a butterfly, was among the 47 ghosts and goblins who made their way to our door in this first, funny, GW Bush Halloween where darkness fell an hour later than usual. Last year, we had 53 come to our door.
It was a bit tricky to dig into last year’s halloween post to see how many visitors we had, mainly because it didn’t show up on any obvious search like ‘halloween’ (since fixed).
Clearly, we should think these things through, for posterity’s sake and make sure relevant search terms are in the text. In any case, we continued Linda’s dad’s tradition of counting the halloween crowd.
Anyway, John and Julie came over, we had dinner (Chef Gulker’s extremely low fat pork tenderloin with cabbage and apples) and enjoyed the proceedings at the front door. Many fewer younger goblins this year… I think the timing – it didn’t get dark until 7 – dinner hour – screwed things up…
