From Pine View Farm

All Hallows Eve 1

One thing I don’t get is the modern mania for decorating for every holiday. Hallowe’en may be the second to Christmas in terms of what persons do to their houses (though it’s sixth in terms of spending).

I wasn’t going to decorate for Hallowe’en.

But I’m having second thoughts.

Thinking he was being funny, Second Son, whom I’m in the process of disinheriting, brought this . . . this . . . this . . . thing into the house that is so appalling in its appearance and so bone-chilling in its implications that I’m thinking that, if I put it on a frame next to the front step, I won’t have to worry about trick-or-treaters; they’ll just go screaming into the night.

It’s carries such an aura of malevolence that I don’t want to put it here on the front page.

But you can see it (parental advisory) here.

    For that bit of sick & twisted humor, you should speed up the process.
