Put up or Dress Up

I know, I know.  You think you are all prepared for Halloween because you have been buying a bag of candy every time you go to the grocery store.  But, ahem... if you check you may find that the 14 bags of snack size Snickers you purchased have all disappeared.  If you can't find them, turn around and look at your bum in the mirror.  That's where I found all my preHalloween candy.  

On to the next thorny quandary: what costume are you going to put together to wow your friends and neighbors?  Let us turn to the man/woman on the street for answers.

The Hendersons are dressing up as Sensei with split personalities

The Darlingham brothers want little Delvin to join them as the Third Musketeer, but he insists on going as the famous "Law and Order" D.A., Fred Thompson.

 Sven won't put down his knitting needles long enough to show you the bodystocking he crafted honoring Freddy Mercury of "Queen"

The Clementines are going as a family of feral foxes

Clarence has grown out of his Spiderman suit and lately he has thinking about becoming a pacifist so he is probably going as the Quaker Oats guy

Donnie is going crazy this year.  He's going to borrow an oboe 
and dress up as a member of the woodwinds section

Ignacio is going as a Republican so his exwife won't recognize him

Sparky is going as a Navy guy as portrayed by a someone from the cast of "Glee"

Norm and Daisy are going as Darth Vader and Chewbacca

 Mrs. Schneider doesn't care what the rest of the family is doing.   This year, she is determined to go as "Snooki"

Hey just discovered your blog, written with a great sense of humor. The secret to keeping a slim butt at this time of year? Buy all your candy on HALLOWEEN MORNING!!!

Oh my gosh. Feral Foxes and Fred! So perfect.
Yeah, I'll never buy a bag of little heath bars again. But some years the local grocery has run out on Hallows eve!

Ha, ha, ha! I hope that a past picture of me doesn't end up on a blog like this somewhere.

It could happen!

Norm and Daisy!!!! Who is this young hot man? :)

I can't even buy my halloween candy until just before sunset, cause I will treat myself nonstop and then have to leave my lights off all night.
