Every year my sister and I "treat" each other.
Or maybe a "trick".
Last year I left CLOWNS in her flowers and on her front steps.
She left me a scary armless baby, standing at my door in the dark.
This year I received a very cool framed picture of a black cat laying on a ledge with the moon in the background, watching a mouse on a wire.
My niece left a book about PYEWACKET in my mailbox.
So I left my sister a gift in the front seat of her car
a black cat that I made, holding flowers.
I hope she likes it.
She works third shift at the hospital tonight.
I feel bad for her, having to leave on Halloween night and driving all that way by herself.
So I decided to give her some company.
I left these guys in the backseat of her car.
Little 88 cent baby dolls from Goodwill. (I repainted their faces.)
I wish I could see her face when she looks in the rearview mirror.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! What a great tradition.

I hate Halloween. I'm at home sitting in the dark so no one will come to the door. But perhaps I should turn that around and go out and play some tricks.

Your post got better and better as I read down. Your black cat is precious but I chuckled out loud when I saw the crew in the back seat. What a great piece! I bet your sister was expecting something, but think those backseat drivers might have done the 'trick,'
