When my kids were young, they looked forward to Halloween in wild anticipation. When October came, the pumpkins were chosen, and each got their own. Then costumes were created. Big black capes were sewn, wigs and masks were made, and hats decorated.
This October will long be remembered for the terrible hurricanes Florence and Michael. Mother Nature has caused much suffering, both to humans and the environment. That being said, we in this area have been blessed to have had beautiful weather.
