Yup, no dress up for me this year. Halloween is just one of those “holidays” that I consider a blast and I look forward to it every year. I love the costumes, the candy, and all the other ghoulish things. Normally, I decorate the house, setup a few of my “tricks”, bring out the fog machine, dress up and randomly scare trick or treaters as they stroll up my driveway. Every year I put a prime rib in the oven and have friends over to celebrate the night. Since I’ve been so busy with various projects over the last few weeks, I had no time to setup, get a costume or do the Halloween thing, but I did manage to have a couple friends over and still make my traditional prime rib dinner.After we ate, we took a stroll through my neighborhood and walked amongst the trick or treaters on our festive streets. My neighborhood is a great halloween area, lots of people drive in and flood the streets. One house in my neighborhood setup a grave yard; Barker’s Graveyard was filled with movie set lights, tombstones, skeletons, sound effects and all. Trick or treaters lined up around the block to walk through the graveyard and caused quite the backup. The local Police Dept actually had to block off the street to allow for the crowd, since it was flooded with people. We walked around for over and hour and came back to eat dessert. My friends came witha guava, lilikoi, passion fruit chiffon cake from Kings Hawaiian Bakery in Torrance and boy was that yummers. You gotta love friends that come with food!I hope everyone had a great Halloween and next year… I’ll be ready!
