Three Pumpkins

On the back walkway, these three pumpkins await the tour of the goblins tomorrow night. I really can't remember how I acquired my devil costume, but I must say it served me well. Others in our gang were really into changing their get-up each Halloween, but I was 'steady eddie', always 'giving the devil his due'. My only complaint about this creepy holiday was the cold. Jacket or not, Mom always made the call. I'd complain; I'd whine. All of it was in vain though. I would have run around in a t-shirt and shorts, but it was not to be. Rain, I could handle, but the whole idea of a jacket underneath to fight off the cold of late October drove me crazy.
"Mom, I'm the devil!" 
So un-satanesque.

*What was YOUR costume?

  1. Oh yeah, in Utah it could get cold at Halloween also so we had the decision to wear the coat over or under our costume.

  4. Nice, ripe golden pumpkins! Can't recall my costumes; must have been standard garb. Loved that you noticed the title on my post today;I think we must have read the same stories as a kid.

  12. I can't recall as a kid, but in more recent years, I did a costume party on Hallowe'en and went in a Civil War Union officer's uniform.

  13. Yummy and gorgeous colours. Anything but a clown. They scar the carp out of me anytime of the year.

  14. Such pretty light on those pumpkins! Growing up in Florida, we hardly ever had to worry about the cold, but I do remember one year Halloween got canceled by a late season hurricane.

  15. The one costume I remember - probably because I have a picture of it - was a "Dutch girl," dress, white apron...and probably the hat, too. Mom made it, of course. Didn't have wooden shoes. And there was a year when my brother and I were both clowns. Again made by Mom. She was quite the seamstress.
