Well, this year it happened again: the Great Pumpkin passed us over.
In years past, I understood. We lived down of a long drive at the end of a dead-end street. Not exactly a big area for foot traffic. This year, though, we were on a more-traveled street. I decorated the front of the house, and because New Zealand shops did not supply my needs this year, the decorations were handmade. Dammit, I was sincere.
Of course, it might have helped if my home were not quite so Dark & Forbidding. Good thing I'm moving on Wednesday!
Many people I know got trick or treaters. I have an enormous bowl full of candy.
