October is Half Over

Oh my heck, where did the month go, it’s halfway to November! I do love October because that’s really the beginning of fall and I’m all about getting closer to Thanksgiving.

My October has been uneventful, and for that I am thankful. We are starting to spend our days off in the mountains and I am looking forward to the change. This year we’ve spent a lot of our days off putzing around the house or running errands, with the occasional hike. We’re both getting cabin fever because, although, neither of us are that social, we still tend to get out of the house for dinners and breakfast a lot more than we have lately. So, I am looking forward to November for more reasons than just Thanksgiving.

How has your October been and what’s new in your world?

Halloween Candy

I am sure that I have posted this before, but with Halloween being right around the corner, it has me curious.

What is your favorite halloween candy? Bubba made a good point last week about not all candy counts as halloween candy. So, if it is available year round, it does not count. For example, Snicker Bars. You can pick one up each time you fill up the car at the gas stations, or when you are in the checkout lane at the grocery store. So, those do not count.

For me, it is hands down candy corn. I don’t know if I actually like them, like them, or if it is the memories that comes with eating a handful each day of October.

Mom would drive my twin around to houses, which were very well known to my parents. Not one house was a stranger. Granny and Dad would stay at the house, handing out candy. This was great because they both had a sweet tooth, and loved kids.

When we got home, all three of them (Mom, Dad and Granny) would “inspect” our loot to make sure it was safe to eat. Dad always kept back a pile of candy corn. Mom had her snickers, and Granny usually went for the baby ruth’s and anything else that might have caught her attention.

I had no reason to question their motives, but as an adult I know exactly what they were inspecting. They wanted their fair share of candies for celebrating Halloween with us. lol

So, my favorite Halloween candy is most definitely candy corn. I can only eat a little bit at a time, but I do enjoy a bag each October.

The Last Week. My Last Chance.

Flapper.DressDo you guys remember last month when I posted a thread regarding October and costumes? I vowed to wear a costume once a week. Not the same costume, mind you, but a different one each week. Yep. That was a pipe dream. I don’t know what it is about costumes, but they freak me the fuck out. Maybe it’s because I feel fake or goofy, or because I actually look goofy. Maybe it’s because they take a creative mind to actually pull it off. I don’t know, but I was that person who said I would do something and then didn’t do it. In fact, it took me half of the month to get the plastic crate of costumes out of the wasp laden barn. Since then, the crate has set in my studio, in eye site of my every day, for over a week now.

Well, that ends today! I’ve cracked open the box and pulled out a costume. One that Dwwindsor picked out. I asked a handful of you fella’s, but he was the only one that finally answered.. probably so I wouldn’t ask again. LOL. Okay, so the point is, I’m not myself today and it took me a good 20 minutes to get dressed.. that’s a lot of time for me. Oh, and I about split the seam in the ass area. Peaked your curiosity yet? Visit me at lonestarangel.cammodels.com – all day, and well into the night… I’m also wearing feathers! Ack! lol.

October Costumes

I’ve never been one for costumes, but I do have a huge plastic tub full of them in the barn. Are any of you guys big into Halloween? Is that your favorite month? Regardless of how you answer either of those questions, would you like to see me in costumes this year? If so, Would once a week, on random days, suffice? I’m trying to come up with new ideas to keep it fresh and fun, but I find myself doing the same thing each day…. So, earlier today it occurred to me that I could do that with the month of the goblins coming up. Thoughts?
