Halloween weekend begins tonight. I suppose I should pull my pumpkin out of storage today and set it up in the window, but… “meh” Maybe part of it is that I haven’t been out much in the evenings and don’t really plan to get out this weekend. I guess I could head out with the camera and take pictures of gals wearing whiskers, but the holiday just isn’t winding my watch this year. Heck, I haven’t even bought any insurance candy like I did last year. I suppose I’ll pick something up before Monday, but at this point I’m mostly wondering how noisy it’ll get tonight and tomorrow night as folks wander the neighborhood in search of beer. I’m pretty sure I’m feeling like an old fogey.

I forgot to mention that I hung up the bird feeders on Wednesday. It’s time to get the critters used to finding food here before winter hits. While I was out running around Wednesday afternoon, I scored a hanger from a local hardware store. It was something they bought as a display for a home show, and has been rattling around for a while with a price-tag of $38.95 on it. I offered $20, and now it’s holding up a bird feeder. But because I mounted it on the little shed next to the garage, the feeder is only about a half-meter off the ground, which makes it an easy hop for the squirrels. You can’t see the hanger in the picture I took, but I’ve decided the little shed that’s attached to my garage does nothing but annoy me anyhow, so I’m probably going to tear it down next spring, at which point I’ll mount the hanger on the garage, and all will be well (and the squirrels will have to work a little harder for their breakfast).
