Happy Halloween!

I hope everyone is enjoying this magical, spooky day, a favorite of those of us in the mystery/suspense/thriller/horror genres and those who like to try on a new new personality when we put on that costume. As usual, here in Colorado it's below freezing. The trees are white with icy frosting blown in on the mist, and a few snowflakes have been falling from the sky. So, yet again, I expect the typical "costume" I will see at the door will be a snowsuit with the flutter of a cape or princess skirt peeking out from underneath the thick jacket.

We usually don't get many trick-or-treaters at the house since we live on a hilly street. Trudging uphill in below-freezing, windy weather is not most kids' idea of fun. For those who do make the trek, I try to have a big treat so they feel the effort was worth their while. The full-size Nerds ropes go over well, and I throw in a sheet of Halloween stickers, too.

Enjoy the mystery of Halloween and stay warm!
