Proof that somebody loves you is in the existence of hotdog mummies

This is HalloweenAfter the frenzy that was Halloween, feels like a carnival after everyone has gone home, nothing left but a few scraps of paper and the faint aroma of stale popcorn. You look to see what that something sticky is on the bottom of your shoe and listen to the last echos of dying laughter fade into the growing night.

Kirk once described the Enterprise in Star Trek III as a “house with all the children gone”. There is definitely that feeling in the air around here. Always hopeBut a nice bowl of chili and a couple of hotdog mummies help to chase away that depressing “Spock’s dead” feeling.

And don’t forget that in a few short weeks we’ll begin to see a new and miraculous transformation across the countryside. A festival of lights, red, gold, and green, will push back the dark veil. A new excitement flavoring an icy wind with a hint of cinnamon and peppermint. We’ll gather again to sing and play and say thanks. Faw who for-aze, dah who dor-aze!

And, come January, if we’re lucky and the wooly worms have any say in the matter, we’ll get buried in a huge snow storm. Sounds like a great way to kick off 2008. There’s always hope, whenever and wherever you are, don’t you agree?
