Twas a gorgeous morning in Wash Park. Halloween decorations seem so out of place on a Sunday morning, and they are everywhere these days. I was passing witches, ghouls and ghosts every third house. This one in the picture was my favorite because it's really big, it's on a home that faces the park...which means that it's a VERY expensive house, and it just looks to me like an old guy yelling at kids to get off his lawn. Ironic, as I was on his lawn to take the picture. Seriously, though...can't you just picture this ghost angrily yelling and then muttering to himself? It was pretty much all I could think of as I looked at him...very amusing to me.
The day was truly perfect, the thermometer hit 80 a little later on this day, and it made for a glorious crisp fall morning with plenty of sunshine. We're almost to November and it still usually feels like summer around these parts. The cold is coming, for sure, but I'll take this Indian Summer for as long as it lasts.
