Halloween Winner!

I have a winner! From my last post – the super-quick, belated Halloween giveaway – I’ve drawn a winner. There were 80 entries, and I used Random.org to find my lucky number…


When I counted through, lucky #19 came up to Cathy D.! Here’s her submission & cute story:


Cathy, be on the lookout for an email from me in your inbox soon! :-)

And, even my mom joined in on the fun, telling this cute tale (I think, but that might just be because I’m in it!):

“My favorite Halloween begins with the making of my own popcorn balls to share with my family and college students…each year Erica, Nicole and Jacki would eat the googy popcorn balls and the year that Nicole and Jacki dressed as the skunk (Jacki) and cat (Nicole) I noticed there was a rather “sticky” part of both their costumes’ tails…needless to say it was from eating the popcorn balls. That same night Nicole and Jacki sat at the top of our driveway (which was very long) with me and handed the popcorn balls out to neighboring trick-r-treaters. Halloween is always one of my favorite holidays.”

And because I know you’ll be curious, I’ve scanned a picture of the costumes she’s talking about. Check me out as a brownish-orange cat, circa 1990:

Halloween 1990.

I was the skunk first, before the costume was handed down to my younger sister, Jacki. I remember LOVING that tail – it was so very soft, and I would pull it to the front and “pet” it all day. :-)

Halloween 1989.

Thanks for playing, everyone! I sure enjoyed hearing all your Halloween anecdotes & favorite costumes! :-)

Oh, and also? Since you’re already here, if you wouldn’t mind helping me out, I could sure use it! I’m entered in the L.A. Times Cookie Bake-Off, and I’d *love* your vote!
