Our store is filled with Halloween things. I can see this. Most other shops have Halloween things scattered everywhere too. Including the Halloween shops. Teenagers and adults have taken this one over.
I just shake my head.
Frankly, I don’t do very well with food or candy holidays, but I really care for all the love that goes into Thanksgiving. When I was small, I got to make the themed placecards for dinner. Grandma over did the turkey and over salted the dressing. I loved it all anyway. My father and mother stayed sober, and interesting things were discussed. Remember Dewey VS Truman. We were a Republican family.
Yesterday we ran to Costco after G got off work. Lots of new books, gas thirty something cents cheaper per gallon than at a regular gas station. One slice of pizza for me. Life was good. In the store, just past the books, lay isle after isle of Christmas stuff. I wasn’t ready for that at all.
