October Overview


Hooray, the witching season is upon us! I'm planning lots of fun Halloween-themed posts for this month, including a trip to the famous Keiki Halloween Costume Parade in Lahaina, Maui! But October must also share space with a whole series of posts about the War of 1812 because this month marks the bicentennial of the Battle of Queenston Heights. Plus I'm hoping for another letter or email from Her Royal Highness since Pussy Riot's appeal is being heard today but prison mail can be very unreliable, especially from Russia. We'll just have to wait and see, I guess.

The War of 1812 was 200 years ago? God, it feels like just yesterday. Gettin' old, amirite?

time to bring my cauldron down from the attic! I will need a few cat whiskers, hope HRH will donate :)

I worry about Pussy Riot so I'm pleased HRH is on the spot reporting back to us. Sounds like a great line up of October blogs, Debra! (And as an aside, thanks for pointing out the Rainbow Flags - I laughed out loud when I realized I had honed in on the men and didn't even notice the flags.)
