Happy Halloween!

This is me. October 1977. I'm something like 4 weeks old in this snapshot. My eyes are still purple (they stayed purple until I was about a year old, then slowly darkened to brown) and my neck is still wobbly. I probably weigh about 10 pounds and am nearly bald. I should have been costumed as peas or a banana maybe even Winky from Wind in the Willows - instead, I was crammed inside a vegetable. A pumpkin, specifically. Thanks Ma & Pa!

Since I can't find the picture of Ruckus as a kitten inside his own pumpkin [for the record: he climbed in there himself], you'll have to accept this picture of Ruckus in a pumpkin costume [for the record: he likes being costumed and the attention it gets him].

I hope you all have a happy Halloween. And remember: don't wear a costume to work. THEY LIE. You will be the only one dressed up. Trust me on this.
