Halloween is tomorrow (Thursday) and that makes my thoughts turn to past Halloweens. When I was a child my mother was the Brownie Troop leader for my group. The local town hosted a Halloween parade and my mother entered our troop. We spent a couple of meetings gluing white cotton balls on a black tail made from material. We stuffed our tails with a coat hanger and crumpled newspaper. Do you know how messy 7- and 8-year-olds are with glue and cotton balls?

Once our tails were completed, we made black pointy ears. We were instructed to wear all black and to tie our tails on with rope. We painted our faces with whiskers and bobby-pinned our pointy ears in our hair. And, voila, you have 12 little skunks.
