Homecoming is upon us once again. It may look as if the elk in front of the Alden State Bank is wearing a Halloween costume, but that would be silly. He’s wearing a football jersey. This is, after all, Spirit Week in Elk Rapids.
But the orange and black motif got me thinking. Not a moment too soon to plan for Halloween I always say. (I start saying that in August, on account of I love Halloween.) Katherine has chosen her costume. She wrote, Here’s what I’d go as for Halloween… I love the “hair.”
I’ve been AWOL lately, but I did bring you back a little present. Remember visiting the chestnut orchard and learning about heartnuts? Well, I found some heartnuts down at Bargy’s of all places. Happy Valentine’s Day (really, really early):
I have another surprise for you, too, but I’m not ready to tell you about it yet. These secret faces are clues.
