Halloween 1958

Fifty years ago today I wore my orange clown costume for the kindergarten Halloween parade. It was actually a pumpkin costume. My mom suggested that we stuff it with newspaper and that I could be a cute pumpkin. No way was I going as a chubby pumpkin. So mom made the 3 black buttons and a hat and voila I was a clown. Over the years, I always thought it was cool when we watched family slides and this picture came up. Dad was the principal and was prepared with his camera that day. (That may be our gray and white Buick in the background on the left.)
