As the economy implodes, it's nice to focus on life's simple pleasures. Like Halloween. The kids and I carved this beauty of a jack-o-lantern over the weekend, and we're pumped to go trick or treating, my boy as Bumblebee the Transformer and my girl as Tinkerbell. I'm thinking I'll supervise the shenanigans costumed simply but proudly as Guitar Dad. Happy Scary Day to all you buggers!
