Trick or Treat

October 20, 2011

When I was a kid, Halloween nights were very memorable.  There were so many kids in our neighborhood that I can remember what seemed like a mass of humanity flowing from house to house for blocks.  We had pillow cases full of candy by the end of the evening.  One year my sister Teacher and I were dressed as Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy.  When we didn’t stay close to each other, people tended to think someone was coming back for seconds and wouldn’t give the straggler any candy. 

That taught me a good lesson:  stay close to my sister.  I have ever since, and she is my best friend.

      I’m glad you like the illustration. I have unearthed all my art work and supplies (very out-dated) and am now on a mission! 🙂

    The illustration is wonderful. If that is what you can do you shouldn’t have earthed them in the first place! Keep to the mission.

    The illustration is great. If that is what you can do you shouldn’t have earthed your supplies in the first place. Keep on the mission.

    Great illustration….fun story too. Takes me back to the days when I was a tot. I think I have just as much fun now passing out the goodies as I did collecting them.

      Yes, I sometimes think that adults are having more fun with Halloween when I look at how they decorate their yards and houses. The drive-by routine is as active as at Christmas.
      Thanks for the visit…I really enjoy your art work.

    How I loved Halloween … still do. We live way out on a private road and don’t get trick-or-treaters…. I miss it. Will write about it this week too!
    Great Post!

      Thank you very much…I’m not quite sure I’ve found my style yet, but it’s fun looking for it.
