Thur. Oct. 31, 2019 – Happy Halloween!

Probably cool and wet. [WOW, my weather station says 39F and 87%RH] Hopefully warmer and dry later.

I like Halloween. Don’t care about any of the overt meanings or undertones. I like decorating and it gives me a chance to use some of my theater fag skills. Last year was rainy, and this year is rainy, so I’m a lot behind on decorating, from where I’d like to be. I had ideas for 3 new additions to my display this year, and I don’t think I’ll get any of them done. One of my rules is that it can’t take time away from other things, so they have to be pretty down and dirty, and quick. With all the other things I’ve had going on, I just didn’t find the time. Oh well, there is next year. Part of me is already planning the changes to my Christmas display…

Of course, with the rain and cold comes the aches and pains. It’s been about 13 years since I had the cartilage in my knees cleaned up, and they are starting to ache again. Joy. Hands hurt, knees hurt, neck hurts, hips hurt, oh my it’s a total whine fest this morning… still, a burden shared, and all that…

I better get my grumpy kids and sick wife out of the house. I do hope the weather gets nice for the trick or treaters.
