We will give it up to Ruby that at least she stayed and was social with the Hu-Dad throughout his visit. When Hu-Dad went to take pictures of Tartok, this is what he found.

We live on the top of a mountain at the end of a dirt road. We do not have trick-or-treaters show up at our house. Ever. Still, we do sometimes wonder what Halloween Costumes are appropriate for us.
