Feed 'em to the birds

So you hosted your first (and probably last) Come As You Really Are Halloween Party. And, everyone from the neighborhood showed up.

Including Fat Bob in a pair of Superman tights. At which point, the rest of the crowd decided tequilla shooters might be a good idea, after all. And, then... well... no point in reliving the gory details.

It's only natural you'd want to put this behind you as quick as you can.

Salvage something from this disaster by disposing of the evidence in an environmentally friendly manner.

Lighten the burden on landfills!
Chop up those Jack O'Lanterns and feed 'em to the birds. 
They love it! 
Any leftovers can be tossed into the compost pile.

What's that you say? You don't have a compost pile? Well, maybe you should start one! It's a whole lot easier than bagging up dry leaves.

As it turns out, I've got a beagle who *loves* to eat pumpkin bits. She sits beneath the table and drools while we're carving jack-o-lanterns and is first in line to tag the scraps.

Birds? She'd fight 'em for every single piece.

I let the snow compost my leaves for me! Ha ha!

Thank heavens I'm not having any parties, and thank heavens I know no one who will wear superman tights!!!
