Superheroes Assemble!

Of all the kids who come to the door trick-or-treating on Halloween, I think the cutest are the ones dressed up as superheroes. Here's some especially adorable examples from the internet --

Now I know that these next two aren't technically superheroes, but they're just so darn cute I have to include them!

Important Public Service Announcement

And you know what that means! Yes, my sisters, our deliverance from the tyranny of the razor is near! All spring and summer, our minds have been consumed by a single onerous thought --

Of course, there are ways around any social rule or convention. Many of us just skate by and do the absolute bare minimum. "Guilty as charged!"

But in winter -- glorious winter! -- we can wear pants all the time and never, ever have to shave our legs until spring and warmer weather arrive again! But that first spring shave is pretty gruesome, isn't it ladies? We need a heavy duty razor for that one. A veritable weed whacker.

So enjoy your soon-to-be luxuriously furry female appendages! Not having to shave is the only good thing about winter.

Halloween Cats

Halloween is tailor-made for cats. And some cats are tailor-made for Halloween!

Don't mess with this fearsome Mehitabel if you value your skin.

Many thanks to Ms. Crankypants for directing me to this next awesome kitty. She is named Batgirl and has her own delightful Facebook page here!

Hey, these cats must belong to Mr. Bones!

Zombie alert! Run for your nine lives!

Oh oh! Catwoman has been trick or treating, but not for candy. Naughty kitty!

But of course, Catwoman doesn't care what we think. Like all cats, she does what she wants, when she wants and there's nothing anyone can do about it.

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving!

I'm in Manitoba right now, visiting my Mom in the nursing home. We're celebrating Thanksgiving in our own way. I'm sneaking in a pumpkin pie from Safeway so Mom can eat the filling with a spoon. Since her last stroke a couple of years ago, she can only eat pureed or soft food, so eating the crust is not an option. But the filling is safe. That's the best part anyway!

The taste she misses most is chocolate so I also bring her a small Tim Horton's hot chocolate every day that I'm here. She enjoys these little treats tremendously. My only regret is that she can't have them more often.

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone who is celebrating it today!

Getting the Last Word

In the spirit (so to speak) of this week's theme of death and skeletons, here's a few tombstones and other memorials for your consideration.

The Old, Old Story

Mr. Bones is a dapper chap. He's been around since time immemorial and has always been a stylish trendsetter.

But that doesn't keep him from being a fighter, right from day one. You don't mess with Mr. Bones.

And the ladies just love him to death! However, he seems curiously disengaged and immune to their many charms.

Here's a photo of Mr. Bones with a few of his pals. Mystery solved!

And please, no jokes in the comments section about the sticks up their ass. That would just be crude. Sheesh, you guys!
