Today’s the day ghosts, witches, goblins and all sorts of spooks run amuck. Trick or treaters may not be running quite as amuck as before Covid. Yet, The times have sure changed from my childhood Halloweens. There was never any concern about the safety of the treats. The worst tricks were soaped store fronts or buildings wrapped in toilet paper. We even had a Halloween parade through the main street of my small town with prizes for the most original costumes. One year I won $15.00 for a costume my uncle and I made together. Good times. Good memories. Following is one of my favorites offered up by Linus . Happy and safe Halloween.
“With each year the Great Pumpkin rises out of the pumpkin patch he thinks is most sincere. He’s got to pick this one. He’s got to. I don’t see how a pumpkin patch can be more sincere than this one. You can look around and there’s not a sign of hypocrisy. Nothing but sincerity as far as the eye can see. Just wait and see, Charlie Brown. I’ll see the Great Pumpkin. I’ll see the Great Pumpkin. you wait, Charlie Brown. The Great Pumpkin will appear and I will be waiting for him.”
