Congratulations to Bandit Talks on its 780th post. Good Lord. It's hard to believe I've been writing on BanditTalks for almost three years. Where does the time go? And to think it's October already - the Halloween season.
The fun Halloween season - the city of Salem is a mad house. October begins "Haunted Happenings" and the city swarms with tourists from all over the world. At this time of year getting across town is an exercise in futility. But actually I like all the excitement.
Thursday night kicked off the festivities with a parade. I made sure I got home from work on time so that I could at least get into to my driveway. I then took Bandit for a walk to check out the excitement. The parade started in another part of town and I wasn't about to stand in the crowd for an hour and wait to see a bunch of kids dressed as ghouls, goblins, witches and Harry Potters.

The Salem Witch House was decorated to the hilt with corn stalks, hay and pumpkins. Bandit went to lift his leg on one of the stalks and the lady almost had a fit. "Oh please don't go there," she said to him. As if knowing, Bandit retracted his leg. What a good boy.
Well, lots to do today. Over and out...
P.S. Bandit is outside peeing on the newly stained back porch. Great.
