One of my longest-time blog pals, Beth, has asked anyone interested to post a picture or two of ourselves as children in our Halloween costumes. I was able to find two. I'm not sure what year they're from:
In this one, I am the Tin Man from "The Wizard Of Oz". The costume consisted of a silvery posterboard top (with heart) and a cone hat. From the look on my face, I either had a case of the shits or I wished I was going as Evel Knievel instead. And who else hated those plastic pumpkin candy buckets? As I got older and more savvy, I switched to a pillowcase which had loads more candy-carrying capacity.
Here I'm a pirate. A pretty lazy costume if you ask me. If it weren't for the bandana and the eye patch, I'd look like I did every other day (The mustache was real. I was able to grow facial hair at an early age).
