Today is Halloween and because I have to work at the Coop I find myself thinking about a costume to wear. I was never really good about it, but a few times I came up with a great one. I know if we get any trick-or-treaters it will be later in the afternoon or early evening. By then Gertrude and Lefty will be safely asleep in the dog turned chicken/duck house. After fighting it for a few weeks, they now go in without being reminded at about 4:30 every day. As it gets dark earlier, I am sure that they will retire earlier. I go out in the morning to let them out. Gertrude comes right out. Lefty stays on her perch and squawks. Eventually, if it is not raining, she will come out.
Went up to Ketchum on Sunday. There was only one car and no people there. I am sure they were there somewhere but I could not find them. That was too bad because it would have been nice to have another visit.
