The annual Masked Midget Extortionist convention is over.
The weather was beautiful this year. Historically the Halloween weather has always been a bit of a deterrent to MMEs but this year it was warm, clear, and still. However, the attendance, at least in my neighborhood, was quite poor. We may have had a dozen or so MMEs which were way less than we anticipated. Fine with me I came out with more candy than any of the little extortionists. As a mater of fact, there were no threats of tricks at all, just begging. I guess it is a sign of our times.
My lovely wife and I did decorate the front yard. We did a Gulliver inspired gnome vs. Jack-o-lantern theme. Here is a photo.

For the first time in many years I actually was able to get all the Halloween decorations down and put away or tossed away before Thanksgiving. Yep, on a roll. My next big goal is to get the Christmas decorations down before spring. You never know.
