Windsurfing in November on Lake Springfield

Windsurfing in November on Lake Springfield

Someone is about to get very, very cold!

He'll be back on the windsurfer in just a sec...

I mentioned to them that my father in law was windsurfing in his 70's.

Trick or Treating photos 2008

This skeleton had a light sensor that would speak insults to you and then stick out its tongue.

This fellow rode in the car with one of the vendors at the last Old Capitol Farmer's Market of the year. I joked about using him as a hov lane buddy. I guess someone else has tried that...and gotton caught!

Found this Dremel pumpkin carving kit at Lowes in clearance land.

This pumpkin had a smoke machine inside.

A hot dog who is glad he's not dressed as a Springfield horseshoe.

BooRito Day at Chipotle Mexican Grill

October 31, 2008 was "Boo-Rito" Day at Chipotles Mexican Grill.

Customers dressed as a burrito, taco or salad received a free burrito.

I hear that the manager went to the mall and handed out free aluminum foil for people to design costumes and then come in and receive their free food.

I made aluminum foil bracelets for my costume.

While I was enjoying my free burrito, I noticed a young couple with a baby who didn't know about the promotion. So I gave them my family's "costumes" so they could get some free food. The look on their faces when I said they'd get free food if they wore these foil bracelets was priceless.

Here are the people who received my Boo-rito costume.
Both mother and child are wearing the bracelets in this photo.

This was my first time trying the guacamole.

Announcement regarding Boo-rito day in the Springfield email list.

While researching what to make for my burrito costume, I learned about Aluminum Foil Deflector beanies.

More about tin foil hats at Wikipedia.

I imagine that we'll hear about tin foil hats on the Big Bang Theory tv series sooner or later.
