Teal pumpkins? – I never heard of that before. Our neighborhood has a website where you can share information or ask questions. Someone posted that they put a teal pumpkin by their front door for Halloween. It signifies a house that gives alternative treats to children with allergies. I remember the year one of my (childless) friends gave out pencils instead of candy. Her house was not very popular.
We are the kiss of death – This past week we had to travel on the interstate road for an appointment. There was a huge accident (4 tractor trailers but no deaths) that shut it down for 9 hours. Last month when we visited my brother-in-law we also got caught up in a major interstate shut down. Those were our only trips recently. I’m starting to think that we are unlucky with interstates. Then again maybe we were lucky. We weren’t INVOLVED in the accidents.
Is that me? – I accompanied someone to a doctor’s appointment this week. We spent 2-1/2 hours in the doctor’s office, most of it waiting for a succession of doctors. Long time readers know I’m not a patient person but I outdid myself. There was the possibility of bad news so I did a lot of entertaining chatter to distract. Never once lost my patience. At one point I wondered where the real “me” was and who was this person in my skin?
Inflatables? – Usually we start to see inflatable characters in yards for Halloween. This year there has been nothing. No pumpkins or witches. I guess the kids in the neighborhood have grown up.
Speaking of crap on the lawn – there aren’t any political signs either. At least not many – I saw two or three. Locally they were plastered at all the intersections. Sometimes there were a dozen for the same person. A law was passed because after the election no one cleaned them up. The street crews had to take them down. So much nicer without them.
So how was your week?
