Halloween’s just a week away now, so even more of us will be getting ready for spooky fun. Some, though, have been ready since Labor Day.
I never decorated much for Halloween, and I usually just watch movies in the dark and keep the porchlight off. I’ll have to get my column done on Halloween, though, because I have an MRI scheduled the next day and won’t be able to do my usual Monday afternoon ritual.
Still, I’ll make sure next Sunday to pull out the only Halloween hat pic I have of Luke (he wasn’t a fan of hats, so I had to be quick the few times I tried to get a photo of him in one). Pity he wasn’t more fond of costumes. He would have made a great devil.
I'm a retiree in his seventies. That may not be significant to many, since there is a bunch of us Baby Boomers around. However, in the year 2,000, when I received a diagnosis of Multiple Myeloma, I expected to be dead in three to five years.
