Halloween is THIS Saturday! How is that possible? Where has the year gone?! And how is it possible that an even scarier day so soon follows it? I’m speaking, of course, about Election Day next Tuesday. What’s going to happen? And did I buy enough Halloween candy to weather it all out? 

Honestly, I didn’t buy ANY Halloween candy this year, at all. I told SJ today that I deserved a merit badge or something for this extreme demonstration of courage. Halloween banned, candy still being pushed, didn’t buy! 

Much love to you, wherever you are, especially if you’ve already voted.

P.S. Consider these my Halloween costumes.
