tourists and towing

So I never got around to carving my "perfect" pumpkin. I suppose a Thanksgiving carving will do. :)
Here are some shots from around the house on Halloween.
 We didn't get many trick or treaters this year, but the ones that did stop by were pretty cute.
One kid thought I was a skunk! And another couple heard the dogs barking and wanted to pet them. So of course I brought Sam, the largest of the bunch, outside. It was really sweet. :)


A couple friends of mine are in town from Barcelona for a wedding. Aida wanted to celebrate a holiday that is only just developing in her country. So after the few kids that stopped by took their candy and went, we hit the town. The night started pretty strangely. A girl came up to us at the first bar we were at and started sharing stories about demons, her singing career, spinning...everything. Apparently she is a dabbler. Or a liar. And also a drink thief. It was weird.
The next place we visited was pretty fun. We danced around a bit, took some cool photos with the lights, and decided to call it a night. Work and jet lag. The fact that Daniel's car had been towed didn't exactly get us to bed as early as we had hoped... While waiting for a friend to pick us up, a less fortunate man started talking to Daniel and Carlos. He sounded real educated and we listened to his story. There really are some good people out there who just got a little unlucky.
We finally made it to the tow place and I felt silly in my costume...so I removed it. My tail was still in my hand when a girl approached me: "Awwww, who's this little guy???" HA! "Um....my tail..."
Even though the night ended in a pretty lame manner, I was with the right crowd for a good time. I will remember this Halloween fondly because it was spent with good friends. The whole ride to the towing facility was full of stories and laughter. And because a bunch of random crazy stuff happened. :)

  1. Wow..when your tail is mistaken for a pet! Once when Rob and I weren't dating, but were working together, we had two pinatas standing in a grocery cart in HEB. They were baseball players, for whatever reason. Some older woman walked by and (not joking) said, "You have such beautiful children!" Yup. That happened.
