Out of the Blue

We had a great Halloween yesterday, but for the third year in a row we had weather issues, though in this case the mild drizzle that started shortly after sundown only seemed to end the festivities a little early. But we still had a great turnout, and as always the local kids were just lovely, acting very polite, with many of them showing more interest in the doggies than the candy. This is Hudson the wonder dog's holiday, and in spite of all her recent health issues, the old girl was feeling particularly well and energetic, so she had an especially great time, as she has always adored children (her first 10 weeks at the breeder were spent surrounded by foster kids). There was an incident where all the cars on the block got shaving creamed, but that's only our second such incident in 13 years so we're not going to complain (especially since the first was after MrsBlue provoked a couple of teenagers by scolding them they were too old for trick-or-treating).
