A Halloween Witch

We're in Venice, California (USA) (near the beach to the west of Los Angeles) awaiting the birth of our grandson. Last night we went trick or treating with granddaughter Zoë. She loved her witch costume and she applied her makeup all by herself.

Halloween is a very big deal in Venice—probably because it's so "bohemian/hippie." There were hundreds of kids in the streets and most houses had elaborate Halloween displays that have been up for days (see And Now for the Spookey Part, and Halloween in the Hood).


  1. All best wishes!

    It was also a very good strategy to be absent from the path of Sandy. Fortunately, most of the personal woe is of the sort I share with the Ents ... we lost a lot of old and wise trees.

    I look forward to the pictures of your differential reproductive success!

  2. You're in Venice? Be sure to visit the canals.

    1. Been there, done that. They're very pretty but the house are somewhat outside of our price range!

    2. That's just what's left of the canals. Canal St. used to be a canal.
      (I lived for 12 years on Market St.)

  3. Zoë is a living doll. With some encouragement from Grandpa maybe she and/or Luca will grow up to be renowned scientists. :)
