The day snuck up on us and we just made it to the store in time to deliver treats this evening. I have to say though that the volume of youngsters has somewhat diminished in the last few years probably due to the merchants in town who hand out goodies too. And that is a good thing!
And coupled this year with this day is the fact that "Daylight Saving Time" ends this weekend. All clocks to be moved back one hour . . . sometime after 2 A.M.
My thoughts go back to when as kids we would run throughout the neighborhood with usually a pillowcase to carry our loot. We ate plenty along the way as well and in those days they were not the "fun sizes" they were the "full sized versions" of our favorite sweets. So much for that.
We've learned so much since those days -- not only about the sweets but also about other dietary delights e.g. bacon, salami, slim Jims we always knew were bad for us, and so it goes.
I guess we can get a lot of kale into those pillowcases. Just love kale though and rutabagas too.
From Last Weekend
I actually had this prepared to include in last week's post but somehow in my haste it was omitted.
So a sort of belated birthday wish to my two brothers.
One on the 24th and one on the 25th mine is on the 23rd (of another month though)
The Search Continues
Actually while I did have a variety of search activity,
none was conclusive enough to detail.
But the webinar this week at Family Tree Webinars was excellent and I expect that it will increase the quality of some of my searching.
But the process takes time to implement.
I have several applications where I could use the method proposed of "evidence".
I will be anxious to put this practice into action.
Also, after the webinar Geoff Rasmussen gave a tour of the brand new Legacy website -- very impressive.
I just found this picture causing my mind to wander way back in time.
One belongs to an actual relative and the other to the front cover of a well-known magazine -- but both could apply to my family and I'm sure to many other families as well.
What Goes on This Week
Well, at the moment the World Series is taking center stage in our planned viewing.
We enjoy the series and for that reason we were rooting for the Mets to win a game.
Since we are not necessarily tied to either team winning, we just like it when the most games are played for our enjoyment.
What I'm saying is that we would like the series to go 7 games. We were so disappointed when the Cubs lost in 4 games last week -- no real enjoyment there partly for the fact that the Cubs lost but also because of the fewest games possible were played.
So, guess who we will be rooting for in today's game. And if that team wins and the series is all even, then the rooting might change . . . we like both teams though I have attended a game in Kansas City.
We are also looking forward to visitors from the Northwest next week!
And now, it is close to our nap time -- lunch comes first, though.
That is a bit of our week, see you all "in a few"!
