So what did you dress up as? If you dressed up? I don't normally but, this year I did. There is a long story behind my costume. I might tell it later but, right now post some pictures of your costumes.

War is an extension of economics and diplomacy through other means.

Economics and diplomacy are methods of securing resources used by humans.

Securing resources is the one necessary behavior for all living things.

Yeah, Greeney. I went to work like that, we had a Halloween party on the job.

About thirty or so years ago, I used to do wild west shows throughout So. Cal and Arizona. I played the part of Wild Bill for about ten years. That was when I looked exactly like him, before I started getting old (that sucks). Any way, I decided to put the outfit on one more time before I was too old to pull it off. For a little while, I did feel a little younger again. I was still tired and sore when I got home though.

Well done Halfabo!! Outstanding Costume.

As everyone who cares knows, I was hoping to do the Nicholson Joker thing but couldn't due to issues with the availability of Make-Up artists.

The Decision was made to do Robin instead. Cutting a long story short I was leaving the house to go and pick up the costume and slipped on a puddle of water on the front stairs and went arse over tit and broke my Tibia (My Lower Leg) consequently I spent the next few days in hospital.

The only consolation was that there were a couple of pretty nurses looking after me in the ward but that is another story in itself.

Suffice to say the redheaded nurse (Pam) was particularly cute and I am not normally attracted to redheads but if I were not attached................. :P :P

I lost my deposit on the costume, missed a great night out (by all accounts of my friends). To make things worse I am now unable to go on my cruise because of my leg so I will lose the booking and even more money. (What a pain in the arse!).

Medical appointments are keeping me busy because of the nature of the break so I won;t be posting as much for a while unfortunately.

Well done, halfabo! Well done! Quite a resemblance, I must say. I can picture you kicking the swinging doors in at at an old West saloon!

I've done that. It was in a show I did in Calico Ghost Town near Barstow Ca. I kicked the door a little too hard and pulled the screws out of the bottom hinge. The group I was with had to stick around after the town closed down for the day and fix the door. Good thing we were friends with everyone in the town.
