The October Costume Party

"In the off chance that I'm on fire in the shower, I bathe in a fireman's costume. I take precautions in ever situation, except in the rare instance that I'm ever trapped in love."

Fun A Madame Tussauds Wax Museum
Fisherman's Wharf

Last week, Alan and I visited Madame Tussauds Wax Museum. We have both been to other wax museums before, but never this particular one. I have to say, it was amazing! Most of the figures looked just like the celebrities, while others seemed just a slight bit off. But still, it was an amazing way to spend the afternoon! All the figures are open and we were allowed to touch, and take pictures with them, as long as we were "respectful." NO ASSAULTING THE WAX FIGURES!
We had a great time! And we actually got a bonus! With out paid admission came two free tickets to the newest Fisherman's Wharf attraction... The San Francisco Dungeon!

I wish I had some photos from our visit to the San Francisco Dungeon, but unfortunately they do not allow photos or videos, so I didn't get the chance. But I will just tell you, if you happen to live in the Bay Area, go see it at Fisherman's Wharf! It's great fun, a little cheesy, but there are some wonderful scares to be had as well! Great taste of San Francisco history!

October In The Abstract...

The Light In October


"October is the fallen leaf, but it is also a wider horizon more clearly seen. It is the distant hills once more in sight, and the enduring constellations above them once again."

~Hal Borland

October Light...


Why does my heart dance in October? Look at the light! You only see that light in October!

October Worlds


"I am so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers."

~L. M. Montgomery

My favorite month of the year is about to come to a close. Alan and I still have a lot of things planned for the last week of our vacation, amazing fun awaits! We are both ready to get back to a normal schedule, but I have to say, I never tire of walking among the pumpkins, and... now don't laugh... I love to ponder what each one would say, if they could talk. LOL. Okay, I am laughing with you, but the truth is, I have been imagining that since I was a little girl.
 I formed the opinion long ago that pumpkins have souls.
 YES, souls.
Does it make sense? NO... they are gourds. Does the fact that it doesn't make sense matter to me?
No.
You couldn't tell me as a child it wasn't true and I am less likely to admit it now.

Look, See...

And Imagine...


I wish the stores didn't insist on taking all things pumpkin from the stores shelves on November 1st! Does that happen everywhere or just in Northern California? Personally, I think pumpkins should be available all the way through until December. They taste amazing, they look beautiful in harvest displays, and as I mentioned in previous post, they have many uses. Sigh. But I guess only having pumpkins available for a the month of October, makes them all the more dear.

Take not even pumpkins for granted.
