Trick-or-treat.

Last year, the weather was beautiful for trick-or-treating. This year, it was cold and raining for trick-or-treating tonight in Cincinnati. So instead of sitting on our front porch and handing out candy, we went to Taft’s Brewpourium. They were doing a promotion with their delicious Gourd to Death brown ale…

And we shared some pizza and garlic knots…

We watched our third-floor OscarCam while ate pizza…

There were a surprising number of kids out treat-or-treating even with it being cold and rainy. When we got home, we took the dogs out for a walk. It was surprisingly quiet around the neighborhood…

And there were some good jack-o-lanterns on our street…

We hope everyone had a safe and fun trick-or-treating. We really enjoyed our Halloween. Maybe we’ll hand out candy next year if the weather is better. πŸ˜€πŸŽƒπŸ•β€οΈ

Happy Halloween!

All these Donald Deskey bobbleheads were dressed up for today’s holiday, and I thought it would make a cute Halloween post on Instagram…

But I wrong. And was told to take it down. The reason was the left bobblehead’s red smock was actually a cape. I was told he looked like he was at the barber shop. And it was embarrassing. I was also told the ghost’s name around the base of the bobblehead was inappropriate and we definitely don’t want to post that.Β Yeah, I can’t read it either.

The good news is it only took me nine photos to get the one I would end up posting…

You try to do something fun for Halloween. πŸ˜ΆπŸ€”πŸ‘»β€οΈ

Good morning.

The sunrises have been starting to come later and later in the morning and we’ve been leaving for work before the beautiful sunrises we’ve been seeing for the last few weeks actually start to break above the houses…

But the sunrise was gorgeous once I got downtown…

Good morning from Northside and downtown Cincinnati. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β€οΈ

Good evening from Northside.

Sidewalk encouragement.

We saw this sidewalk encouragement on our dog walk this evening…

You got this! Taken with Instagram. πŸ˜€πŸ–ŒοΈπŸ‘β€οΈ

Constructing Cincinnati.

The hand demolition of the building continuedΒ across the street at the corner of Main and Eighth Street…

And down the street work continues on the building that is home to Taqueria Mercado at the corner of Walnut and Eighth Streets. That’s actually the entrance to their Mexican restaurant just above the furthest most construction pilon to the right…

It’s pretty amazing that they’ve been able to stay open through all the construction on the building they call home. πŸ˜€πŸš§β€οΈ

What’s happening?!

When we stopped to get coffee at our beloved Sidewinder this morning, their front door was blocked and we had to go down the alley and through the back door…

We didn’t even know there was a back door. It reminded me of the time we when finally figured out how to get into Collective Espresso in Northside

It turns out Sidewinder was getting a new front door installed this morning…

We think Sidewinder’s coffee is just the best. And we love stopping to get coffee from Sidewinder in the mornings. But just twice a week because that stuff could get really expensive if you got it every day. πŸ˜€β˜•οΈβ€οΈ

Timehopping.

Last night, the Red Sox won the World Series. This morning this popped up in my Timehop from five years ago…

I love it when teams I like win. Thanks, Timehop!Β πŸ˜€πŸ¦•β€οΈ

Burgers from Tickle Pickle.

This evening we walked over to Tickle Pickle to get some burgers for dinner…

We love Tickle Pickle’s burgers. Genifer ordered their Nom Petty with Swiss cheese and lotsa mushrooms…

I ordered one of my very favorite burgers around, the Meatallica with bacon, American cheese, fried egg and mayo…

It sooo good. There were some great doodles on their chalkboard tonight…

I loved this tomato and pickle…

And this sad ghost…

Oh… We love Tickle Pickle. πŸ˜€πŸ₯’πŸ”β€οΈ

800 Tweets?!

Timehop reminded me that 9 years ago, I tweeted this gem…

It’s funny to look back at the things I used to get excited about. Fast forward nine years, and I’ve sent out more than 30,000 tweets. Unfortunately, almost all of them have been about as exciting, insightful or profound as this one from nine years ago.Β πŸ˜€πŸ¦•β€οΈ
