Happy Halloween

Tomorrow.  Tomorrow is Halloween.  It has become quite a big deal, commercially, that is.  Why, I bet the dollar turnover on decorations and partying is as big as Christmas.  Yet still, I don't think of Halloween as a holiday.  A day for fun and mischief, perhaps, but even the mischief has gotten carried away from fun into wickedness.

But that's not the reason for this post.

Here is the reason:  Wishing you a fun and safe good time on Halloween.  And,

inflicting on you once again my all-time favorite Halloween cartoon.  You are welcome.

Purely for your entertainment (and to keep you out of trouble) check out these rules for sharing your Halloween spoils.

Please return here tomorrow for another of Uncle Jep's tales from the High Plains.

You may note at the top of the page there is a new tab, "Short Stories."  I have placed the current series of stories I am posting on Thursdays here in one place, should you like to review any of them.  New ones will be added each Thursday.

It's crazy how Halloween has taken over all the stores. We have a big Halloween party at work tomorrow--Pat and I will be going as Salt and Pepper--she's salt, I'm pepper. I'm hoping for first place in the costume contest--if not just a laugh or two.

Shelly, someday I may find another Halloween cartoon that is funnier, but I am doubtful.

Lin, You. Are. A. Riot. And so, apparently, is Pat. Happy Halloween!

I have gotten so I hate Halloween. I'm trying to figure out a way to celebrate All Saints Day instead... one that makes sense. A way to celebrate, that is.

Great cartoon! For the first time in eight years we are not in a gated community, so we purchased three big bags of candy for the trick-or-treaters. Later we discovered that the High School Athletic Association scheduled football games for Halloween night. Turns out it is the game where senior band and football players are honored. So we will have lots of candy all to ourselves. Ugh.

It's been years (and years) since we lived in a place where there were kids Trick or Treating. My husband buys candy he likes and then gets to eat it all himself...When we were kids there were more nuances to Halloween - way less sophisticated and lots more fun!

Vee, "Ugh"? No, no, no. That is a wonderful thing! Enjoy.

Grace, we don't expect anyone though we live less than half-mile from the place where we used to get dozens of kids. No one hits this street, and the grand-kids are all too old now.
