Have to say that this Halloween is "special" since it's been a helluva year.  

You see, it's my b.day (yes I am a witch - cackle cackle).  And in the year that has nearly pass, I was put on HBP meds, had a stroke in my eye and...had an open partial in March.  But even so, I have survived.  Nearly back to my normal self - or maaybe better say, I am working on the new "normal" that involves living with cancer.

Anyway - no feeling sorry for myself since that helps no one 8-). I can look forward to a new year, new age bracket in triathlons, and with great hopes, a year of health and happiness - which I send to everyone.

So raise your Trick or Treat bags and autumn beers to yourselves for me!  Thank you all for being here.

Cackle cackle,

During my trick or treat days (late 40's-early 50's) they gave away candy cancer sticks (cigarettes). I guess that is not politically correct anymore.

My friend, Robin, had a Cigarette Girl in the fancy restaurant costume, with the little neck ribbon and tray that held a variety of the candy cigs. 

And now, the makers of Camels have banned smoking in their office buildings.  Times have changed.

I've got my shirt with the lovely, offensive F word followed by the more offensive C word, and my purple and black tutu, gloves, and pointy hat all ready to go for tomorrow night!! I will be riding my broom in honor of everyone here and will wear the shirt proud!!

My 2 yr old g.daughter was a fairy during the treating on Main Street, theN Emily the train at night. But as Iceman can verify, it was BLOWING and snowing so her treating was 4 houses.  Sigh

But the dinner that followed was wonderful.  Happy All Hallows to all - an to all a good night.
