Hello again everyone, greetings from Poverty Hill. Mannnnnnn the weather has been great here for the past couple of weeks, cool nights, mild days, and I'm lovin it. I can breathe almost like a regular person, well at least I thought I could until I decided to go for a walk in the woods and was reminded by my huffin and puffin that I'm not normal anymore. Oh well, I'll work with what I got.
Miss Judi and I was sitting around talking about Halloween coming up soon. Halloween just isn't the same as it used to be when I was growing up. It was one of those fun holidays for us kids, where we could dress up and load up on the goodies from around the neighborhood. Mom would put all kind of face paint on us and dress us up like all kinds of stuff, she enjoyed it as much as we did I think. Some of the kids even got those fancy store bought costumes which made them the envy of the neighborhood.......laffin. I always looked forward to seeing the lil kids come around dressed up hollerin "Trick or Treat." Seems like it was like that until I'd say 10 years ago. Now if we get 4 or 5 kids it's a lot. I know kids are still kids and they still love candy.....so whats happened? I heard someone say Halloween is a sadistic holiday where everyone that participates is some sort of Pagan.......BullShit..........how many 4,5,6,7 or 8 years olds have yall seen worshiping some sort of pagan or devil worshiping. That's about the dumbest dayum thing I've ever heard of.......give me a break. I never even thought about such a thing when I was getting dressed up as a hobo to get me some of those goodies, and kids now don't either, Lordy. Just let the kids have fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Keep em safe, but let em have fun. I'm beginning to wonder if it's not the generation of Mom's and Dad's that too lazy to take em out. Going to MacDonalds for Halloween just isn't the same thing..!!!!!!!!!!! My Grandkids are gonna dress up, I can bet ya that, I want them to look back and have memories of costumes and candy and having fun going from house to house saying "Trick or Treat.", with eyes big in anticipation of what kinds of treats they will get.
Anyway that's my view on Halloween for what its worth.....laffin.
Well I guess I've rambled enuff for now, I need to get my butt in gear, gotta get those pumpkins ready for the Grandkids to carve and paint. See yall again soon, stop by if ya get a chance, the doors always open to my friends.
Hugss and Handshakes
