    Hey Ecula! Thanks so much. Hope your Halloween was spook-ful as well. Love the sketch - little bit of sinister mixed with joy. Seems about right. ;)

    Well a lot of it is in the way she writes...tough to be short with it.

    The first house just has a single woman living in it, but somehow always has a crazy number of cars parked out front. We don't know how she affords the insurance on all of them. She's an "amateur astronomer " and we swear one night we saw her telescope pointing straight into our living room window. But when we asked the police to check it out it turned out her telescope didn't even have a lens in it! But we're happy she cleans the snow off her sidewalks.

    The house next door seems to be running some kind of organic produce business out of their backyard. Don't know if they have a permit for it but customers are always coming and going way into the night. We think they may be selling more than pumpkins.

    The third house has had an ever-changing string of renters living there, including a woman who never mowed and a guy who came and went at all hours carrying a shovel and black garbage bags. And now they're advertising it on AirBnB and we can't believe how much they're renting it for. It's nowhere near as nice as they claim in the ads.

    See. Nothing too exciting. :) Just a bit of reality creeping in on her little fantasy world.

    Thanks for the comments on our village. My wife is actually doing little write-ups on her Facebook for each house, from the perspective of someone living on the street. Apparently even haunted houses can have annoying neighbours. : /

    Ooph. Three warm sunny weeks isn't much to get by on. We had a pretty hot summer, but got just enough rain to keep things nice for the first couple months. Things are really dry now with huge wildfires nearby. We've got smoke coming in from BC and Washington. Hoping for more rain soon.

    Summer is OK. Still looking for that perfect job. Did school turn out OK for you? I know that stuff is not for everyone.

    Glad to hear you're going to have a bit of Halloween fun in Tel Aviv. And you always do a wicked job with your face paints! :)

    Nice to see you back!

    Sorry to hear there's no party this year. Hopefully things will all connect and you'll have one next year. I'm sure all those ideas are starting to build up and when you do have one, it'll be unbelievable! :)

    A frozen costume sounds wonderful. You could combine a kid's move "Frozen" and make them frozen, and make a lot of children cry. ;) They used to sell a kit over here for making icicles that dripped off your nose. Haven't seen it recently though.

    We do decorate the yard for the TOTers. No gore though - just classic movie monsters, witches and tombstones. They get scared pretty easily. We'll start putting the tombstones out tomorrow.

    I am tempted by the lighting too, but a little too expensive to experiment. I think I'll wait and see if I can get the red "Fire and Ice" version which is supposed to have motion more like fire.

    I bet whatever I get, there will be something better next year.

    *nods in agreement*

    Web is definitely a nice tool to have in your toolbox. It's amazing how much employers expect now. I've seen postings for designers that are required to do sales and drive a forklift.

    Mornings are hard.

    Oh, that's great! Always seems to be a big demand for web people. Let me know how it goes. So you're taking the course in Finland and then heading to Germany?

    I'm doing Ok. Still job hunting and doing some freelance stuff. I'd love to settle down somewhere work-wise though.

    Thank you Ecula! It's something for all of us to look forward to. So are there many people in Finland that celebrate Halloween? I would imagine it is very cold there at the end of October!?
