Trick-or-treat... and a stump speech
Yup. Halloween is right around the corner. The calendar on the wall right in front of me shows that Saturday is the Big Day. And there will be a full moon, too. That should make things exciting.
Normally, The Other Half and yours truly would be making plans for Halloween. We would have some friends over, sit out on our big front porch, eat pizza and hand out treats to the kids. Sometimes, we could plan on having about 200 trick-or-treaters.
Not this year, though. We’ve decided to skip trick-or-treating, thanks to that pandemic thing that seems to be going around. We’ll look forward to 2021, when things will be back to “normal.” We hope...
The Other Half and yours truly went on a Sunday afternoon drive last week. Another one of our pandemic dates.
Our journey took us along several rural roads in our little corner of the world. Fall colors were in full display. We saw one white-tailed deer (which I was not really expecting to see, given the time of day we were motoring around the country), four hawks, a bunch of cows and some horses.
We also paid a visit to Pumpkin Town, which is on display this year at the Anna City Park. If you have not been to see Pumpkin Town, be sure to make the trip. The displays continue until Halloween.
I watched a couple of World Series games and a pro football game over the weekend. Guess I was looking for something “normal” to do.
To be honest, it’s kind of hard to get excited about a World Series involving Los Angeles and Tampa Bay. Even so, the games I watched were pretty entertaining.
Sunday night, I watched the Seattle Seahawks and Arizona Cardinals play an exciting NFL game. Those of us of a certain age might remember that the Cardinals used to call St. Louis home. Guess that’s why I watched the game.
Of course, the Cardinals flew the coop, left St. Louis and moved to the desert. Then, the Rams came to St. Louis. For a while. Then they left, too. Disheartening moves.
We’ll close with a couple of other things this week...
Daylight saving time comes to an end this weekend. Mother Nature has slowly been adjusting the dimmer switch for the past couple of weeks. I’m not ready for it to be dark at 5 o’clock. Oh, well.
If you haven’t voted yet, be sure to do so. We all need to have our say in the future of the country.
