Frame A Day '12: Week 44--10/28-11/3
October 28--Poison Apple--Trust's ballet school had a Halloween party today, complete with their version of a
haunted house in their newly acquired second floor space. Imp was
told that it was a good thing he had 'spikes' because that would help
him as we journeyed through the haunted house. I guess they worked, as
he did not take the bait offered by the Wicked Queen, also known as the

he replied "Georgia". Somehow, he thought we'd wind up seeing the Grand
Canyon once we arrived. Next stop--A geography lesson?
November 3--Pumpkin Face?--We had one last Halloween party to attend this afternoon, at our church. Earnest asked for a pumpkin face, but without orange, it was a
