Lucy, thank you for the ribbon for Samhain. I went out to town last night for trick or treat with my little grand daughter. Where I live, if Halloween comes on a Sunday, they do the trick or treat on the Saturday night before. I'll resist comment on that and just say that it was a great time anyway. How will you observe Samhain, dear one?
