Happy Halloween #15230
Freshly gathered from his pumpkin patch, a spook skeleton gardener proudly shows off what his green thumb and hard work have produced. It’s almost Halloween, All Hallow’s Eve according to the old folks, so you’d best get your holiday pumpkin ready for carving now. Happy Halloween to all!
As you’ve surely heard, it’s always best to buy local. He’s about ready to put up a punkins-for-sale sign to bring in the customers driving by. Soon all these pumpkins will be set on porches all across the town of Afterlife and lit up at night in toothy grins just like their owners. Nothing like big smiles all around even in the dark, is there?
As many of them do, this skeleton spook gardener grows more than just pumpkins while enjoying all the plants and crops. Just ask him what’s in that pipe he’s smoking; it’s probably some highly aromatic part of Mother Nature, I’m sure. On second thought, perhaps you shouldn’t ask because whatever it is surely isn’t for sale at a roadside pumpkin stand unless it’s in northern California.
Goodness, Halloween! That’s bigger than Christmas around the town of Afterlife! If it’s one thing any skeleton or spook looks forward to all year, it has to be the holiday season with a Happy Halloween.
