Our boss let us out early this afternoon so we could go home and prepare for the trick-or-treaters. Apparently the radio commentators were full of concern that there is now so much traffic leaving DC at the end of the day that people would not get home in time to be there when the little goblins came calling. Quel horror!!
Anyway, we don't get trick or treaters in this neighborhood, for some reason. On the way home, though, I did pass throngs of lovely students, some still in uniform, from the Visitation School (plus a few boyfriends) calling at the embassies on Massachusetts Avenue. Many were in costume (a willowy tiger wearing a ruffled housecoat stood out, as did Hansel, one of the boyfriends, and Gretel).
The Lazy Gardener posted George's prize-winning pumpkin from last year on her blog today, so I dug through iPhoto and found the scariest thing I have, taken last month at the peace march. They're still out there, too!! Beware!!!
