Come on over to my place! The rats are waiting to greet you:
Favorite moment of the night? When a wee little girl, dressed as Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz, reached up to pet the giant rat on the railing, sighing, "Oh, I just love your bears."
Earlier in the day, one of the neighbor kids, who proudly informed me that she was a skele-biker, asked me why the giant bat was wearing a tiara.
Heck, why not? In the land of the strange, anything goes.
