Happy Hallowe'en

Sorry for the lack of action around here. Been busy with the 'Haps story and obviously can't post that stuff. (Page 6 is done and dusted. Have maybe 2 hours left on the cover.) Sure I could've drawn something in my spare time, but there's been a lot of video games out, too, which have gobbled up those minutes. Plus, there's Lilah.

Speaking of Lilah...this'll be her first real Hallowe'en and she's attending her third such party today at school. Last night to get ready for the Creepy Evening we decided to carve up the pumpkins on our front step. Nothing fancy. I just took a knife and attacked one. Turned out okay for not drawing first. (I'll post a snap later when it's dark and I can take a shot.)

While carving Lilah took great interest in what was going on. This is a snapshot of what happened in the 10 minutes it took to carve up ol' Jack O' Lantern:

Lilah: "I say, father, this strange piece of fruit sure looks orange and delicious. May I sample it?"

Me: "Lilah, you really don't want to do that, honey."

Lilah: "Pish-posh, father. You're such a wet blanket. Variety is the spice of life as they say..."

Lilah: "Zounds, father! This victual tastes wholly unappetizing. I fear I may regurgitate. Thankfully, licking this chair has settled my quarrelsome stomach."

Me: "Told you so."

Lilah: "I shall never doubt you again, father. Your word is gospel."

Nicely scripted. When I eat something that doesn't taste right, I lick the chair back too. Makes perfect sense. Lilah's the perfect Halloween pumpkin!
