Happy Halloween!

How about a pumpkin, a historic building and a historic barber shop in Brandon, VT?

Brandon, VT. The barber shop is on the right and has been in operation for 50+ years. It looks it, too, with original awnings, chairs, mirrors, sinks and other fixtures.

Have a great day, candy corn, pumpkin carving and all.

For years I’ve had people telling me to dress up as a flamingo. I have yet to do so. Maybe another year.  If any of you readers are dressed as a flamingo, please please send me a picture. Happy Halloween!
