DAY 843 pupdate on Tugg:
Halloween. The sun was barely starting to set and there were already lines of children up and down the street waiting for the trick-or-treating to begin, and lines of older kids, young adults and parents waiting for the haunted house and zombie shoot-em-up to start.
Tugg walked down the hall, clapped twice and called out, "Places everyone!" Then Tugg went to the wall of TVs he had gathered together to watch the storm coverage and turned them all on. Each screen was filled with the same paused image — an image of an illustrated pumpkin, with the words "It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown" written across it. After the Great Pumpkin, other films were waiting to play, including: The Nightmare Before Christmas, Young Frankenstein, Wallace & Gromit: Curse of the Were-Rabbit, Pooh's Heffalump Halloween Movie, Monsters Inc. and Ghostbusters.
Then Tugg said, "It's go time!"
Tugg hit the play button on the remote control, and flung open the front door. There were cheers and clapping from all around.
Tugg said, "Welcome to our not so scary haunted house! This year we have a great spooky tour for all ages! If you're looking for the scary stuff, go ahead around to the Zombie Shoot-em-up! It's around back! OH, and be sure to get some candy out of the cast iron kettles on the way out, BUT be sure not to let any of the monsters in the grave yard have any! They aren't supposed to have chocolate!"

We decided to get in some early trick-or-treating, before our haunted house and zombie shoot-em-up started, so Ajaxx and I got on our basketball outfits and got ready to go door-to-door! AND, just to get us started, my friends Brenda and Charlie sent us these great Frankeweenie trick-or-treat bags! AND Bubbles and her mommy and daddy sent us some cookies to get started too! Here we are, all set to go! Thank you everyone for the great treats!
I hope everyone is safe out there today on Halloween! Get lots of candy and have lots of fun, but most of all, be safe!
