As long as we've lived here, we never have had trick-or-treaters or anyone else come up here near dark. So I sit around on Halloween and watch a good movie or listen to music or work. Below's a couple of music vids for this post.

Forget about silicone fakes and people pushing buttons. We live in real HallaWeen World. All year long.

New Post. I couldn't figure out how to put it where I wanted it, so I attached it to this 'dinner' post.
My latest 'Ho Chi Minh' style sandals.
I have adapted! I maintain two types of footwear that I depend on.
Cold dry weather mukluks/wool socks for over night and cold weather and my heavy work sandals for everything else.
I hate to give up on my last pair. They've 'helped' me build a substantial portion of our life here.
I've repaired blow outs on them, lashed them back together on the fly. And though the leather insoles are worn as thin as tissue for the forth and final time and the soles are thin and the straps are poppin' from grit and motion wearing them through, they have been equal to my pairs of expensive mining boots I wore back in the,,, my old life. Yes Sir. They been wonderful for me.
The next pair are currently in working trials right now.
I wish I would have photographed them before I got paint on them but the work must continue!
Final assembly will be done with home made hobnails and heavy waxed nylon cord through punched holes. But they must remain easily repairable. Straps are dog collars ranging from extreme heavy pit bull,'top paw' to
lighter more comfortable red and purple puppy collars given to me by my friends.
As was the ATV nylon tire I use for tread soles. My sandals work like hell up and down the mountain as well as any combat boot but keep my feet dry and cool. A most important key in my life here. I have the best sandals and the best friends!
Thank you.THE END.

A ground squirrel (of several) that live under the tower and are do to be safely evicted soon. Real soon. The self certified rodent re-locators,,, (myself and Zoe) are already at work. Casper, certified by me as the death squad captain, is held in reserve. We are better than a boatload of cats!

This couple sleeps by our bedroom window at night. It had been just the larger female last week. Much bigger ring neck lizards live on the roof. Some times I hear and then see one slide off a slopped area of our roof chasing bugs. They just climb right back up. This couple have evolved from tree lizards to 'window screen lizards'. During the day (along with our canyon wrens) they are part of our cleaning crew.
