Halloween’s almost over so this post is a little late, but I still wanted to put up this photo of the front of our house:
The spider’s name is Hank. Hank first appeared on our roof last Halloween and was something of a hit with the local trick-or-treater crowd. This year, though, Hank hasn’t had much to do. Aside from Brooke, our next-door neighbor, we’ve had only one costumed youngster dare to make his way past Hank in search of handouts. Brooke has declared that this is her last year of trick-or-treating, so poor Hank might be quite bored next year. I, of course, am forced to eat all of the leftover candy.
