For today’s post I’m going to cheat a little and direct you to a piece of mine, “When Halloween Was the Ultimate Treat,” that was run in my local newspaper, The Times Union. It ran a couple of weeks ago, but I thought it would be better to post about it closer to All Hallows Eve. Plus it gets me a free post without having to come up with any original material, which is always a good thing. Especially on mornings in October when I wake up to snow on the ground and below-freezing temperatures and I haven’t planted my hydrangea bulbs yet. But as the clerk at Zack’s Guns & Ammo told me yesterday, “We don’t have to like it. We just have to live with it.”
Happy Halloween! Remember to stock up on Butterfingers this weekend.
P.S. I had a spike in page views on Wednesday. Anyone have any idea that might have happened?
