and a happy halloween to all!
It was a beautiful, super cold day here in Portland. I happened to be near the Helen Bernhard Bakery today, so I popped in to get some Halloween cookies.
Helen Bernhard’s has been around forever. We used to get the cloverleaf rolls every year for Thanksgiving, and all our birthday cakes came from there. I swear their frosting roses tasted better than anyone else’s. Anyway, I was telling all this to the woman who helped me, even though she seemed supremely uninterested and kept giving me these looks like I should adjust my medication. What can I say? I was jacked up on caffeine from Peet’s Coffee, plus being around baked goods tends to make me overly enthusiastic.
We had 38 trick-or-treaters tonight, which means I have an extra box of full-size candy bars. That’s kind of dangerous. Here’s a shot of a couple of my favorite trick-or-treaters.
They are fright attendants.
