Photo: Never too Late for a Cute Cardigan Halloween Witch

We had a terrific Halloween Weekend. I  daresay in olden days it t’weren’t so much fun what with lashings of church and the icy hand of fear clutching at your heart until the whole damn-ed things was over. We had decorations up which attracted a woeful bunch of trick or treaters. Sample: 3 lads in hoodies pulling the hoods down over their (I assume) acned faces while hopping from foot to foot going – oooh oooh oooh. Pathetic. I can do better than that when waiting for the lavvy… Still it’s apparent there’s no depths to which people will not plummet to get a couple of blackjacks…

Here’s a scary witch. Photograph by Mr Norman Williams.

I played bass in Dyfed's first punk band, and living in Llandewi Brefi, had a grandstand view of Operation Julie. Eventually, after 2 years playing bass in Brighton's 256th punk band, I returned to Wales to deal in books and then antiques.

Apart from my family, my interests include books, maps, Nikon, Yashica and Mamiya film cameras, British Culture 1935 - 1965, Poole pottery, Welsh textiles, and Poster art. My favourite movies include anything by Pressburger and Powell favourite music includes Gene Clark, Gram Parsons, and anything form San Francisco 1965-1970. I am a late convert to 'Kraut Rock'.

    A couple of blackjacks? Seems harsh, even for hoodies.

    That poor child looks more Welsh week by week…

    My 14 year old Laura stepped out as a ‘sexy devil’ – not quite so cute!

    yep – and she is a ‘treasure’ – good word!
    cute at 3 but a treasure by 14 – you’ve got all the years in between to enjoy – i’m suddenly a bit envious of all the fun you’ve got ahead…………..
