TIME TO START CARVING

OK, we've picked out our pumpkin.
Now it's time to start carving.

After all, Halloween is tomorrow.
And we need to have our Jack-O-Lantern
greeting trick-or-treaters at the front door.

So what's it going to be?
A scary face or something fun!

Carve out your masterpiece.
(And watch those fingers!)

BOO ! ! !

As Halloween fast approaches,
neighbors are busy decorating
the fronts of their houses
with ghosts and goblins,
and everything scary!

Soon, youngsters will knock
on their doors for Halloween treats.
(That is, if they have a trick, or joke.)

It's a holiday tradition.
Although it seems to be getting more scary.

Do you have your costume ready?

BODY ART
AS FINE ART

Meet Sean Baltzell, master tattoo artist,
and owner of Tower Classic Tattooing,
"in the Grove" in St. Louis, Mo.

One visit to Tower Classic Tattooing
and you'll see first-hand how tattoos
are fine art, created by talented artists.

Tower has a library of ornate designs
to choose from or customize,
or they can create a design from scratch,
and in every color.

"Bright . . . Bold . . . Forever"
is their motto.

Customers are only limited by
their imaginations.

(How about a sacred carp
on your fishing arm . . .
or your pet bulldog?)

STOP ON RED

There are trees
as red as the stop signs.

More reasons to slow down
and enjoy the fall scenery.

SOMETHING STRANGE
IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD

There's a delicious new addition
  in our town . . .
Strange Donuts!

It's no ordinary donut shop.
 They offer donuts that are, well . . .
STRANGE.

Flavors like:

Gooey Butter Coffeecake 
Maple Bacon 
Raspberry Shortcake
The Elvis (banana & peanut butter)
Chicken & Waffles

They're new to the 'hood, 
and already busy.

They open at 6:00am until
they sell out.
And re-open at 9:00pm
until Midnight.

Their motto:
"Be nice.  Stay strange."

(We will.)

6:16 A.M.

Early morning sky.
Kirkwood, Missouri.

(Painted in reds.)

Reminds me of this weather warning:

"Red sky at night,
sailor's delight;
red sky in morning,
sailors take warning."

And sure enough,
the clouds came rolling in
an hour or so later.
And took our sun away this day.

WHEN WITCHES PARTY

As Halloween approaches
(and it's getting close)
there's a group of "ladies" in the 'hood,
who gather together
for a Witches Party.

This coven assembles
to mix their potions,
agree on their hexes,
and celebrate the season.

And the neighbors understand.
Mostly.

So, watch out.
