So, did you miss me?
Sorry I didn’t post last week. I was quite ill. I’m better now, though, all things considered.
Today is Halloween. Had a great visit today with my nieces. They were so cute in their costumes. Then I did one of my absolute favourite things; I handed out treats to the trick-or-treaters.
Now, this being 2020, I did things a bit differently. Usually, I would wait for the trick-or-treaters to knock on the door, then I would answer and give them treats. In the interest of exercising safe social distancing, I set up a “treat distribution station” on our front step. I set up a table, placed a container full of treat bags on top of it, and sat in a chair behind it. When trick-or-treaters approached, I put on my mask (the safety kind), and used a grabber tool to place the treats in the kids’ bags. The kids loved it, and I had a blast. Sure, it was cold out, but I bundled up to keep warm. The main thing is that the kids had fun (and so did I), and everyone was safe.
That’s what a society is, folks; you can look after yourself, and still care about others.
