The most recent consumer confidence survey was discouraging, but if spending for Halloween is any kind of indicator, people may be becoming more bullish. Tonight is Trick or Treat night in New Albany, and our neighborhood is festooned with fake spider webbing, scarecrows, styrofoam tombstones, hanging bats, skeletons emerging from the ground, and screaming skulls. If the weather cooperates — and it is supposed to — it should be a fun night for the kids.
Last night we had some neighborhood kids over and carved pumpkins for the Webner house jack ‘o lantern walk. We’ve got about 12 carved pumpkins and we will position them on the walk to the front door, for a lighted path for our trick or treaters. I’m hoping to get and post some photos of our pumpkin artwork.
