Happy Halloween…ish

Because of the cleanup of fallen trees and power lines in Hurricane Sandy’s aftermath, the township where we live has officially postponed all Halloween activities, including trick-or-treating, until Friday.

(Is that weird? That you can just postpone a holiday like that? Would they postpone Christmas for a blizzard? It’s weird to me.)

Truman and Gourdy on the porchBut because this is the first year in a while that I’ve actually carved a jack-o-lantern, I wanted to put him outside on October 31st to fulfill his Halloween destiny, darn it. So here’s a quick pic of Truman and “Gourdy,” the world’s happiest pumpkin. We had three or four trick-or-treaters come by early in the evening (because they weren’t sure or hadn’t heard about the date change), but after about 7:30pm, I turned off the porch light and brought in Gourdy’s faux candle. I hope my happy pumpkin lasts ’til Friday.

Happy Halloween, everybody!

  1. Cute pumpkin! And of course Truman is cute too. ๐Ÿ˜‰ If you have room for Gourdy in your refrigerator, that would help him last until Friday night.
    I remember my hometown postponing trick-or-treating two or three times when I was a kid because of blizzards. Like you, I thought it was weird that we could just postpone a holiday, but it wouldn’t have been any fun to trudge through all the cold wind and deep snow in costumes on Halloween night.

    • Hee hee! Yes, the boy does get his share of compliments everywhere we go. “Beautiful dog! Gorgeous dog! That’s one good looking Labrador!” Seriously, *I* never get that kind of attention!
