Halloween Fun

Halloween pumpkin

This Halloween I got the opportunity to stay a few days at a friend’s cabin…
in the woods…
with no internet…
no cell service…
and no TV/cable service.

I know what you’re thinking. It sounds like the beginning of a classic horror movie. The only tale I have to tell is one of fun and relaxation.

Myself and a few friends enjoyed a few days of relaxing and watching a ton of movies (including Elvira: Mistress of the Dark – it’s campy and perfect for Halloween). It was nice to escape the hustle and bustle of the city and catch up with old friends.

For a little Halloween fun, we carved some pumpkins. I made my usual cross-eyed face with his tongue sticking out. It’s a design my grandfather taught me when I was a kid. I always think of him when carving pumpkins.

Our ‘treat’ for Halloween night was a delicious lobster dinner made by three wonderful cooks. I set the table.

Our stay at the cabin was too short. This mini-vacation does make me think that we should do a Halloween holiday every year.

I designed the four banners behind Congresswoman Judy Chu for ChapCare, a nonprofit community health center providing medical, dental and behavioral health services to children and adults.
