Walmart is also telling people they don't foresee any supply shortages even if the pipeline is down for a couple of weeks. So there is no big crowd there trying to buy "just in case" like there was two months ago when this same thing happened.
Halloween is over. I have been looking at family blogs and seeing all the fun costumes, and get togethers. I miss that, but your kids grow up and move away. Living where I do, nobody is going to come by here trick or treating. But, my wife and I still enjoy remembering when the children were home and Halloween was a big thing for us then too.
This would have been about 1989. My wife made my daughter a lizard costume.
She made my son a Punchinello the Clown outfit.
In those days, there were not really any housing developments here, and people were all scattered out. So we would take the kids to the town square, and the merchants would have things for them to "trick or treat." You didn't have to take your kids candy to the hospital to have it x-rayed, to see if it had pins and razor blades in it back in those times.
Back then she sewed a lot, and made most of the kids clothes. I had a job as an AS-400 mainframe operator at a big sewing plant , working nights. They gave me the bolt ends of the fabric, and we had huge amounts of fabric of all kinds at the house. None of it went to waste.
Still very warm here, the weather is perfect except for the lack of rain. We are going to the lake in a few minutes to walk.
Other than that, nothing earthshaking to write about. Lots of people whose blogs I've read for a long time have been taking a break, but some are coming back now and that' s good. I've missed them.
