The Art of Choke

October 31, 2016


Halloween without the kid. A bit weird… not that Peter did much in the last 6-7 years having to do with Halloween… but still: kids’ holiday, no kid.


In honor of Halloweens past, here’s the photo I sentimentally posted to Facebook today:


Peter and Chenoa, back in the day.. the day being about 2001. They look about three years old, give or take a year. Both are lions. Jim made Peter’s costume. So sweet…

One of these days, I’ll compile a bit of a record of Halloween outfits… I remember maybe a leopard (a costume that’s been in the Frame family for decades and is passed down through the generations), a Black Widow spider, the above lion, a gulper eel, plutonium, an M&M… sure there were a lot more. Jim made most of Peter’s costumes and did a great job of it.

Anyway. No kiddo this year.

We had maybe our record of trick or treaters, however, even on a rainy All Hallows’ Eve: five. In two separate groups. That’s pretty good for this neighborhood.

Meanwhile…I made dinner tonight which, among other things, included artichoke. Grew up eating them regularly, but can’t recall ever preparing them myself, hard as that is to believe. Called mom to get cooking tips and it worked great:
