I wracked my brain trying to figure out a good Halloween topic for my last Tuesday post in October, but I got nothing.

I always cut myself when I tried to carve pumpkins for my kids, and usually messed up the creepy grin so it looked foolish instead of ghoulish.
The big bowl of candy usually ended up on my hips instead of inside the Trick or Treaters' bags.
I'm a Halloween Scrooge. Bah. Humbug!
