First of all I would like to apologize to all of my readers.
This year I have to cancel Halloween.
There were so many great opportunities that came up that required my attention and time. Therefore, Cap'n Crunch will have to be put off until Halloween 2013. On top of the news of this senseless tragedy, the NY West Village parade is cancelled due to Hurricane Sandy. This is the first time it will be cancelled in its 39 year history. I can't help but think that my not having a costume ready had something to do with it. Again, I apologize for that.
My only hope is now that I have 12 months to work on the Cap'n, I can devote this time to making him replete with majesty and splendor. Majesty and splendor are code words for sequins, rhinestones and beads. I'll be piling on as much glamour as my frame can support without being crushed under the weight.
So look forward to updates in the months to come. I hope everyone can manage to have a Happy Halloween despite this devastating news.
