Halloween is officially a new kind of holiday. Sure, we dressed the kid up last year, but he couldn't even walk back then. We put him in a Western-ish shirt he already had, cut out a star from some shiny paper, called him a sheriff and called it a day. Not so this year. This year my brilliant wife created this owl outfit and we've thus far participated in two different neighborhood events full of a zillion other kids from around the way. When the entertainment at the block party on Saturday was three local boys, all on guitar and with no rhythm section, playing instrumental Jimi Hendrix covers, I knew I had entered a new world. Who knew, by the way, that Halloween was a three-day event? Not me. Halloween itself has not even occured yet! The grand finale is still to come.
