Hello again. Happy frigging Halloween. Not real crazy about the holiday, actually. When I became old enough to stop trick or treating, the holiday lost a lot of its appeal to me, never being one given to the random acts of vandalism expected of teenage boys on the 31st of October…there are only two things that I like about Halloween; the opportunity to see old classic horror movies on TV (although these days it’s pretty much limited to AMC and Turner Classic) and the scene in "It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown" where Snoopy’s sneaking around doing his Red Baron thing with some absolutely gorgeous watercolored backgrounds behind him and some atmospheric flute music playing while he does so. I love that part. But like Norville Barnes said, "You know, it’s for the kids". So happy Halloween.

More tomorrow. Bevare! Take Care!
