For Halloween, we can put up a strong tent against the wind, and put a haunted house inside. We can have jack-o-lanterns throughout, on miles of hay, and tables with spider webs, candy corn, and mechanical creepy hands that jump out at you! A few skeletons, a Vincent Price movie on the monitor, flickering lights, and plastic bats abound, along with the occasional black cat, pirates among the booty of candy bars and plastic rattle snakes. The neighbor kids will visit, how they grow so fast. Seems as though some were just being born not so long ago. Dreams. Life.
