OCT 31, 21 .. HALLOWEEN 2021 .. OUR NEIGHBORS

Today, Patti and I, while out and about, saw some outdoor decorations away from our neighborhood as other families celebrated their Halloween with outdoor displays.

Yes we know, the first six photos below are of our own outdoor Halloween display and not those of our neighbors. But when we wrote the first Post it was still dark and we could not get a good photograph of our own display. I snapped these on Halloween Day. There are some very nice photos of Patti, our Jack O' Lantern Mistress.






A modest display directly across the street from us.


Now we see some other outdoor Halloween displays.

I shot two photos of this next display to show that the eye moves from side to side. Patti noticed this and pointed it out to me.

The below Dragon's wings move (open and close) but I could not adequately catch the extremes.



We finish with the below displays. 

We thought the below Jack O' Lanterns were plastic but no, each of them were hand carved.





Well That-Is-That for Halloween 2021 up here in Anchorage, Alaska.

Smiles and Hugs from Cap and Patti



OCT 31, 21 .. HALLOWEEN 2021

And the world turns and suddenly it is .. 

HALLOWEEN

October the 31st 2021

It has now been four (4) years since we have actively participated in HALLOWEEN. Our last celebration of this Holiday was back on October 31st 2017. Oh My How The Time Flies.

And Patti, our master Jack O' Lantern creator, went to work in our kitchen.



VOILA !


Out in front on our Condo entryway porch.



However, we will not be displaying our Halloween treats outside on the porch. We will have our display at our interior entry door.




A brief blast from the past. Patti's 2017 Jack O' Lanterns.


Another great job of creating Jack O' Lanterns My Dear Patti.


HAPPY AND SAFE HALLOWEEN 2021 !!

Patti and Cap

OCT 30, 21 .. A POTPOURRI (A MIXTURE OF PHOTOS) .. WOW .. WHAT HAVE WE HERE?

Here we are, the end of October, Halloween is tomorrow, and I am having trouble getting going here on blogspot.

What to do?

Sit down, focus, and just DO IT !

Aren't children wonderful? We have a young lady, and her mother, living in our six unit condominium that Patti and I are quite fond of.

The other day, as we approached our unit, we saw something different and we thought.. 

"What have we here?"

"What are we seeing on the ground to the left of our bedroom window?"


Something colorful!

Wow! Just look at what we have here!


A small, colorful, rock garden!




Moving right along.

Looking out at our backyard from our living room.


The other day, when I looked out in our back yard, I said to myself..

"What have we here?"

A Bull Moose is what we have here in our backyard!




A few days ago the below chap nearly came into our bedroom.



Stay tuned here, in the next few days you will see more Moose photos than you have perhaps ever seen in your life unless you live up here in Alaska. Below is a 'sneak preview'!


"What have we here?"

I guess that the melancholy (a feeling of pensive sadness) of our approaching Winter, especially the ever shortening days and dark skies, is affecting me. 

To everything there is a season, a time to be born and (sadly) a time to die.

Last Spring was the birth of Patti's colorful and glorious Summer flower boxes.






And now, the very few still remaining, are in their final days, doing their very best to hang on and remain alive.









To everything there IS a season.

Beginning with ourselves and our lives.

Patti and her eternal optimism sure helps keep me from hitting the bottom of the doldrums (a state or period of inactivity, stagnation, or depression).


Thank You So Very Much My Dear One Patti!
