Befitting all hallow’s eve, the waning moon arose over a cloudy sky in the distance, showing its face on the water, allowing us to view stars we haven’t seen in a while due to completely cloudy skies for weeks.

We had one Halloween visitor, who spent the past few days staying with me. Miss L, the sighthound, showed up 20 minutes after she was picked up, in a handmade octopus costume. My husband is asleep with his phone on charge so I’ll see what he got in terms of photos in the morning. Purple and white. The only thing that didn’t work is the head. One may sit that on a Golden Retriever but not on a sighthound who actually was able to put her nose in my ear.

My supermarket checkers were Chewbacca and Lance Armstrong. We don’t dress up. The only clothes Zoe wears are gorgeous silk Martingale collars and one rain/snow/sleet/freezing weather coat several times a year when needed. We tried mukluks for her but she won’t do it. Instead I carry her over salted ice in winter. Do you know the old hand-cranked bucket ice cream makers? They used rock salt to make the ice colder, something that really hurts dog paws on sidewalks.

The moon and stars and water are beautiful. Miss L looked so cute and uncomfortable in her octopus outfit. She needed that treat. Have a good night. Dee
