Halloween party

Well, I didn't make it to the party, but Cliff went down and took some photos. Have a look:

Is that a witch, or is she just hiding under there?

Not something you get at the local super market -- I think.
If you look closely, you can see the tip of a nose peeking out.

Neat sombrero!

Now is that the devil, or is that just someone with sausages for ears?

Who was that masked stranger?

No, this is not the wicked witch of the west. Quite the contrary.

Now that certainly is an interesting, um, ... Yup, it sure is.

Even our treasurer got in on the act

Fun :

A couple lived near the ocean and used to walk the beach a lot. One summer they noticed a girl who was at the beach almost every day. She wasn't unusual, nor was the travel bag she carried, except for one thing; she would approach people who were sitting on the beach, glance around and then speak to them. 

Generally, the people would respond negatively and she would wander off. But occasionally someone would nod and there would be a quick exchange of money and something that she carried in her bag. 

The couple assumed that she was selling drugs and debated calling the cops, but since they didn't know for sure, they decided to just continue watching her. 

After a couple of weeks the wife said, 'Honey, have you ever noticed that she only goes up to people with boom boxes and other electronic devices?' He hadn't, and said so. 

Then she said, 'Tomorrow I want you to get a towel and our big radio and go lie out on the beach. Then we can find out what she's really doing.' 

Well, the plan went off without a hitch and the wife was almost hopping up and down with anticipation when she saw the girl talk to her husband and then leave.

The man then walked up the beach and met his wife at the road. 

'Well, is she selling drugs?' she asked excitedly.

'No, she's not,' he said, enjoying this probably more 
than he should have. 

'Well, what is it then? What does she do ?' his wife fairly shrieked. 

The man grinned and said, 'She's a battery salesperson.' 

'Batteries?' cried the wife. 

'Yes!' he replied.

'She Sells C Cells by the Seashore!'


  1. Looks like you missed a fun night. You'll have to wait until the Christmas party for your chance to dress up. How about Rudolph antlers? I think I may still have a pair if you need them.
