Anybody doing anything special for Halloween? We have a street fair in Lahaina on Halloween which everyone seems to go to - they even put on buses to get everyone there! I know that doesn't sound like any big deal, but for us us it is suprisingly organized! We have a 2 lane coast road in and out of Lahaina so many people go the night before and either get a room or sleep on the beach because the road soon comes to a standstill.
Our neighborhood doesn't seem to have any small children, we have yet to get a Trick or Treater here! We always buy the candy just in case, and it takes us months to eat it all up!
Today we have a huge marlin fishing contest (tag and release) which some of the guys at the office are going to - it's been the talk of the office for a couple of weeks now - hey! it makes a change from football, and I have promises of fresh fish from them all!
No children in our neighborhood or close by either. We just turn off the front lights and close the door. Only ones that would come by here are old enough to drive. hahahah
Last year Mike tanked up on candy, turned on the lights, stood at the ready. Not one single child. He HAD to eat all that candy himself. Lucky for me, I don't like candy.
Jenny...got any good recipes for Marlin? I've never eaten it because they are such a beautiful fish, But the guys caught a huge one and it is in the freezer at DH's office and they keep asking me if I want some...
Lots of kids...mostly from the outer islands that we have sponsored to come trick or treating...we had rain and thunder and lightning, which caused some ssorry looking princesses, but generally added to the atmosphere...Carnival a couple of days ago, and adults party was Saturday night. On this rock, any excuse for a "to-do" is a good one.
Randy...I knew what it was, I was wondering why you mentioned it..."the book" explained it.
My DD is Wiccan and my DH is a Scot, so I was familiar with the phrase. I'm actually surprised, didn't think Wicca would be very popular down in cowboy country...don't know why exactly...hmmm.
Oh how cool! Yes when I was in SDA college I studied Theology, and became familiar with Constantine, and without discussing taboo things..lead me to dig deeper.
Is DD, Dear Dad?
It seems sort of natural for Gardener folks to explore relationships of times past that included nature is such a grand way.
Shari, I have never eaten marlin but I think its a firm fish rather like tuna...perhaps grilling on the barbeque? The competition the guys were on yesterday cost $1,000.00 to enter and the grand prize is $10,000.00! A lot of money for a fish you are not even going to get to take home! I think it's a good excuse for boys day out as there was more talk around the office about coolers, beer, and who was bringing the sandwiches than there was about fishing. Several of them have today off as a precautionary measure in case they have hangovers, you wouldn't catch me on a boat on the high seas with that lot with sharp hooks in one hand and a beer can in the other!
