Check out this fat, happy squirrel. It's perched on top of a Halloween house I made two years ago. Kind of cute, isn't it? Now imagine being a tiny person inside that gingerbread house. Imagine listening in horror as the giant squirrel gnaws its way through the roof, one piece of candy corn at a time. Happy Halloween indeed!
When I brought this year's Halloween gingerbread house to work, some people were curious to know what I would do with it afterwards. Would I eat it? Preserve it? After all, I spent something like 20 hours building it.
How could I tell them that in the past--as this old photo shows--as soon as Halloween is over I've put the gingerbread house in the garden so I could watch the squirrels go to work. Now that's entertainment!
Will I do that with this year's house? I don't know. But if I do, I'll be sure to take photos and share them with you.
