Batman comes to Westlake

As some readers may remember, I make a figure of noted comic book characters to display on my front porch each October in celebration of Halloween. These were once made using real pumpkins for the heads but other materials – which last much longer – are now used.

My family of figures include: Charlie Brown, Lucy, Snoopy, Woodstock, Sponge Bob Square Pants, a Minion, The Hulk, Superman, and now (drum roll, please) BATMAN.

Westlake Mayor Dennis Clough was kind enough to pose with my new creation during a visit to my house. The whole family will be out around the first of October – yes, Superman will be flying again too.

Please feel free to visit (1988 Sperry’s Forge Trail) ,especially with children. Photos are always welcome. My great joy each year is having the young trick-or-treaters comment on the various characters.
