It's Halloween again! Woot!
Of course, this is the one holiday that used to make elders cringe, and draw out stories about demons in the spirit realm stalking our every move!
This bad PC attitude is what makes this one of my favorite holidays!
I was working last year so I missed it. Damn. Not so this year. Some of my adult children are coming over to the house and we're dressing up. I'm going to be Donald Trump!! My son is usually dressed up like a chick magnet. My dog is going to be I dream of weenie! Bert, his side kick will be a rodeo horse with a little rider on his back. Cute, very cute. We have six bags of candy all ready for the kids that come, and the front of the house is decorated with a skeleton that looks like it wasn't buried all the way in the garden and spider webs everywhere. I have a jumping spider that's a big hit!
My wife wants me to make chicken and dumplings. Sounds good! My youngest son Phil likes to fire up the BBQ and smoke some pork ribs. They're delicious! But the wife always gets a bit miffed because they're too fattening! There are two ultimate thrills in this life, and at my age, food is the only thing I have left!!!
What's your plans for Halloween?

We went to a party last weekend. I was Joan of Arc. I had a burned cross and tunic, ropes, with a bundle of twigs for the fire at my feet. My wife went as "Bitchy Parisian woman". She had a fake poodle and was trying to get the kids to start smoking because, "Eet ees cool, you cheeldren are not cool enough."
She would say rude things like, "I came all ze way from Paree for zis boring party?"

I can’t celebrate, at least not yet since I’m fading in my local community not DFed. It’s too recent. I don’t know how I feel yet about celebrating them anyway. No emotional attachments or happy memories of them. No Friends or family to celebrate with anyway, except my husband. I do want to celebrate our birthdays though. I never thought the reasons they gave made any sense.
