We never have trick-or-treaters back here deep in the dark woods. It's a long.....road through the dark woods lined with tall trees and branches that peek out; a road like going to the unknown. The signs read "No trespassing" and "Dogs on Property". Sadly, the candy will just stay here. I wonder who might want to eat it.. ummm?
I still decorate the house up for us and any friends who do happen to drop by. The girls came over for dinner last night, so I strung up all the orange Halloween lights on all the decks. They really pop out in the Halloween darkness. We do lock the gate, especially on Halloween. No pranks, please!
But, once you leave the darkness and enter through the gate, it does open up and you do find our home. I always try to get Mr. W to leave and go off on adventure with me this time of year, but he likes to stay and build his man fire at the pit, have a few guy friends over for a few beers, and talk the talk.
Gracie, our little pumpkin. A real goblin-getter!
