Not a fan of Halloween……

 I am not a fan of Halloween…  most definitely not since the Retail Band Wagon took charge.  OK.  I am an old grumpy, but I can still remember those ‘good old days’ when carving the Pumpkin was the treat….. followed of course by delicious homemade Pumpkin Soup

But I am pleased with the increasingly popular trend of putting the old Pumpkin heads outside for the wild animals. The squirrels, mice and birds in our local woods are in for a real feast… all the more important at this time of the year when they are busy building up their food and fat reserves for the winter.
