Happy Halloween!

Well, it's that time of year again. I love me some Halloween. Not because of all evil spirits and stuff like that. Do you know what tomorrow is? That's right! November first!! And Miss Hope especially loves the upcoming season. All the decorations and rot like that. It makes me do a little wiggle in my chair just thinking about it.

Last night the SeaBees put on a haunted house for all to enjoy here on base. For those who don't know what the SeaBees are...they are by my defination the Construction Crew of the Navy. And they rock. Due to the nature of their professions, they have access to some seriously fun toys that can be utilized in a haunted house. We went early because they had things toned down for the little people. My son went through with no fear, staying up to four feet in front of us. His only hesitation was walking the path through the woods to get back to the paved path. A guy was sitting there with a mask on. Upon spotting him, Vitt stopped and held up both hands. The guy asked for a high five and Vitt thought it might not be a wise thing to do. A couple more guys came out of the woods to speak in a non-scary way. I told Vitt they were just guys. Masked Man took his mask off and grinned. Vitt then held both palms up, grinned, and said, "You just a guy." High fives were exchanged then.


The Edge wishes everyone out there a fun and safe time tonight if you do that kind of thing. We're dishing out Airhead candies. What's your candy of choice this evening?



Oh, and this is Roscoe, my first carved pumpkin. The smaller one in front is courtesy of Vitt. A cute project from school. I'm glad I took a picture last week. Roscoe has barely made it this far and I've kept him in the house! This is my effort to be all creative and artsy. I can see my mother cringing now.....

My love, Let us not forget the fact that November 1 is MY Anniversary date in the Navy. Which means, as this is an even year anniversary, that we get a pay raise this year. And, only 2 more to go until we are elligible for retirement.

Roscoe rocks! Retirement? After only one pumpkin? "Miles to go before I sleep".

Well, I'm quite saddened by the fact that I didn't get to see this marvelous pumpkin while I was there yesterday! You did a great job!
