FALL HAS IT ALL...gruesome to gross....schlock to Shock

I love a crisp Fall breeze- it's like a righteous wind blowing up my pant leg.....and the leaves......gently parachuting onto my driveway...it sorta gives me hope...hope that my neighbor will change the direction of his...leaf blower. Like a lot of people Fall is my favorite time of year..and it's not just because of politics. My kids love it too...and so do fashion designers....my wife enjoys the snuggling and the extra layer of clothing & shoes my boys and I leave on the floor and in the hamper. I like the way the house and neighborhood smells when someone is burning their fireplace.

And let's not forget Halloween.....my youngest son(now 4) called it WEEN until he was 2....then it got on our nerves so we decided to correct him. That's the little guy's favorite "holiday". Last week we were at the LVM Halloween store...upper level..looking for a costume for my oldest(7)..my youngest already has his MR. INCREDIBLE suit...anyway we're makin' our way through the isles...ghost-check, goblins-check,rubber presidents masks-check, polymer tombstones-check, crazy hair wigs & claws-check....
BAM ! LIFELIKE BURNT HUMAN SEVERED LIMBS ON AN OUTDOOR BBQ GRILL.....easy cowboy...what did I miss ?...next to a lifelike bleeding rat in a cage....woops....NO CHECK..THERE....ok I have a 4 & 7 year old...they are not combat vets or EMTs so this was a bit new to the kids...and unlike a lot of Americans(not me) they had not seen SAW I,II,III,VI,or V.
I quickly steered them out of that area back to the ghostly halloweenie goblin skeletenesk kind of stuff..and away from the ADULT SECTION.....

I got home and told my wife about it suggesting that maybe there should be "big Goblin" and "little Goblin" section...you know what I mean....so parents don't have to explain why there's a crime scene in the Halloween store....to their kids...


she said..it's a Halloween store....people know what they're getting into. This from a woman who refuses to see the movie STRANGERS...with me ...because she claims it's too horrifying.....
HOW BOUT SOME SAWED OFF FEET ON THE GRILL FOR OUR 4 YEAR OLD....?
anyway...they were' VERY lifelike for those of you who have seen real body parts.......


I'm for a friendly warning.....what do you think ?

ps- I've been busting my wife non-stop about it .....I told her we should get rid of that Disney crap and watch Friday the 13th and Halloween with the little guys.....NIGHTMARES SCHMIGHTMARES.....
