last year a bumble bee . . .
this year, a crocodile. Neighbor Toby came over to show me his Halloween costume. He was, unfortunately, much more interested in whatever was on the other side of the garden so he wouldn't look at the photographer. But please note the costume's tail.
We were glued to the telly watching the Giant's outdo the Tigers and I'll tune in to watch a bit of the victory parade tomorrow. But right now we're completely immersed (no pun intended) in l'affaire Sandy. I've been in touch with family and friends on the east coast who could be in harm's way but all have reported they are fine. Our sailing crowd all live in Maryland, Massachusetts, Virginia and New York. Patty and Jon live on the Chesapeake and took to higher ground for a night. Betty and Bob live on the 21st floor of a condo on the banks of the Potomac and they were worried that enough wind might blow out their windows. Mary and Oliver live near Boston and only got some rain. Janet's in upstate NY and is probably getting hit right now. Heard from Kaley; she, Rob, Ruby and Grampa Tom in Guilford, CT, decided to hunker down in the basement and wait it out. Liz in Baltimore is wet but safe. I'm sick of hearing how this mess will/won't/might affect the election. I agree with the President: the people in the storm areas are the ones we need to think about. The election will take care of itself.
