Wow...do all "East Coast" people party for two weeks for Halloween! Looks like you all had a great time. We went to a birthday party last night at Porno Bob's place... fun party and big campfire in the backyard.

Imagine a guy with a heavy Boston accent switching over to the Father Guido accent. He has it down pat! I've heard him do the routines many times and I still crack up.

To answer the East Coaster 2 week Halloween celebration question, sometimes organizations will pick the week before to avoid conflict with other parties.
3 separate adult costume parties at 4 of the private clubs we frequent are being held on Oct 29. We will be visiting at least 2 that night, the third being optional. Demand for an appearance by Father Guido is high.

For myself, I never need an excuse to go out in costume. The Lady Juliet costume is a favorite repeat that requires no real preparation. I found it on post-Halloween clearance sale for $10 at a Big Lots years ago.

Okay, managed to find one of me, too. It was an awesome night and we had tons of fun. We don't usually go out on Halloween night, unless a party just happens to be then. Too many folks on the road. Skinful is always held the weekend before Halloween. I LOVE MY NEW BOOTS!

Sarah, Nice pic & boots...today I got the rest of my Dude costume from Halloween City. I'm ready now, but the Bunny hates her costume, which was delivered by the UPS guy today. So, she starting over....

Last night The Bunny and I went to two different parties... first party was a retirement party for Kathleen Jordan... It was nice to say good-by/good luck to Kathleen. She was a great person to work with on large fires during the summer.

Anyway, The Bunny and I were the only two guests to show up in costume. So that was interesting... many old bosses were there, so it was fun to visit with them as well. We only stayed for one hour, than left for the costume party at G & T's house.

We were the last couple to get to G & T's house for the Halloween party... Great friends, really good food, and funny costumes!

More pics of the Halloween party.... Porno Bob built a "cowboy fire", but he called it a "Trex fire", not sure why...

I will let The Bunny know that you loved her costume. She was working on that costume up to the moment that we left home! She gets a little crazy, when making things like that ....she's worried that it doesn't look good.

So, I had to give her that "guy" pep-talk. Telling her,"You Look Great, BABY!" To get her out the door. And she did "look great" in her home made costume, so I wasn't faking it... not that I would do anything like that.

Last night The Bunny and I went to Win River Casino for Halloween, and Monday night football... The Bunny won $500 and I got into an argument with three "cousins" at the poker table who were using "Rounder" tactics. 100 years ago, Mr. Lo would have gotten shot for cheating! Anyway, I was having fun up until then... I left the table and may never play there again. On the lighter side, I enjoyed watching the football game at there new remodeled bar. And I was very happy to see The Bunny win again!!!!!
