Is it too early to start thinking about Halloween? I hope not. The cooler weather has arrived and in about eight weeks it will be firmly in control. Hopefully, the scary night will be downright chilly and dark paths will be covered with leaves that protest loudly when children scurry over them.
Summer is nearing an end. There were days when we exposed our bods to the elements without any protection except, perhaps, a thin layer of suntan lotion. But now things are changing and this year there is the worry about special varieties of flu.
Get those shots early! The regular ones are available now and in October the new ones will be ready they tell me. Some of us will not be coming back next summer because we paused before making our appointments!
And then the great Appointment Day will arrive. I hear Vincent Price laughing in the background…..
Oh well. The Grim Reaper comes for all of us in good time and we should have no fear. Enjoy the festivities while you can. I really have only one concern as the scary season approaches . . .
Where is Billy Mays?
And does he realize he no longer needs to pitch a variety of things for 19.95?

At first cock-crow the ghosts must go
Back to their quiet graves below.
One need not be a chamber to be haunted;
One need not be a house;
The brain has corridors surpassing
Charlie Brown is the one person I identify with. C.B. is such a loser. He wasn’t even the star of his own Halloween special. ~Chris Rock
