Halloween isn't over until Brünhilde says it is

The costume bar is high at Chuck & George's annual Halloween extravaganza. In past years, I've been a mermaid, Cruella Deville and a forest dryad or, as one partygoer named me, "Goddess of Autumn".  

This year I was the Valkyrie Brünhilde. She was a smashing success. My favorite photo comment on FB came from a male friend who wrote, "two too tonic". My only regret is that I didn't think beforehand to carry a mini-recorder with Wagner's Ride of the Valkyries preset on it so I could have announced my entrance.
