it was the warmest october 31st in northern utah that i can remember, for which fox was extremely grateful. he was able to pull off the bare-chested look like a stallion, which really was essential to preserving the integrity of the ensemble.
cousin jenna was tink. auntie chubbs approved.
cousin abby the octopus and gramma linda.
celebrating halloween with our family was not the only purpose of our trip. fox and i also came to utah to once again lay claim to our mutt, who'd been shackin' up with my oh-so-gracious folks while we finished up our mexico city livin'.
i love my dog, i really do, but he really put my love to the test when he copped a squat and deposited a fresh, steamy turd on the polished floor of the salt lake international airport while walking through security. and i didn't notice until i had carried my butterball baby, my cowering dog and my wreck-of-a-self onto our flight and taken our seats that my barn door had been wide open for who knows how long. not sure how many people i offended that day.
