All Hallows Eve

Everyone is posting today about Hallowe'en - makes sense. For the last several years, since I have been living in apartments, I have gone to a friends house to help in doling out candy and to celebrate her husbands birthday. He passed away in July of 2006 so it has made for a harder time the last two years. He died of cancer, last year while doling out candy, I was bald. This year, I am working from 17.00 - 19.00, prime candy time, but, the apartment complex no longer gives out candy. We just don't get enough kids - haven't for years.

Enough being morose. In previous years, we have had a ball, dressing up and making our own costumes, carving pumpkins. I only have one costume to show off though - mobsters was the theme at work.

Love it! Actually, I think you showed me those photos at the time. Hysterical.
I was digging through my photo albums but couldn't find the one I wanted...probably just as well.
Looks as though neither of us is going to do much celebrating of Hallowe'en this year. Oh, well.

You make a fine looking mobster.

One day I'll get a new scanner and get all my photos stored digitally. Yes, I am having a quite night.

Thanks Leah, Sis told me at the time how much I looked like our oldest brother.

Not to mention the people at work didn't know who I was when I walked in!

OOhhh, Suave - Thanks Crabby!

Thanks Hilary!

I owe a lot to my brother who was living with me at the time, he made the moustache and the uni-brow - uh, not to mention lent me the suit & tie. (oh, he's a hair stylist & wig maker)
