Being short means you can go out trick or treating for Halloween for the rest of your life, I keep trying to convince my Mother who is 87 and 4 foot 11 ( and shrinking) that she could go as an old lady...(the photo is of my Mum going to school for the first time at about age 3, and her beautiful greyhound)
I am thinking of doing the same. At 5 foot 1, I too have been awarded the prize of trick or treating for life!
(I do feel a little sorry for those really really tall 11 year olds that get questioned)
The strangest trick or treaters was a family with a new born (like days old), Mother, Father and Grandmother. All not dressed up. The grandmother held the baby and presented it to me when I opened the door.
The oddest thing I ever got trick or treating was a grapefruit, a guy didn't realize it was halloween and rumaged around his fridge for a while and plopped a grapefruit in my halloween bag.
Trick or Treat.
Happy Happy Candy Eating.
And a Merry Halloween.

and dropped words
waiting to visit you
roll them over with the side of your shoe
a pile of freshly fallen words
today in the pile
the sun up and out
and down and under
rain and clear
in a matter of minutes
i found the word carried on the wind
and a mum says to her son
'yahh like the colour of the ocean"

...the great thing about knitting is you can unknit,
a do-over is totally possible
learning curve in the curve of the neck,
trying to do a jig when all that is required is the box step...
cryptic, unclear pattern, not seeing the pattern,
learnt a few things along the way...
i like that.
