Howdy from Texas, where we had a high of 86 today. We've had highs in the low 90's this month still. A week ago, we had a high of 64. Bi-polar much? LOL. Texans aren't the only ones, but we like to complain about our crazy weather. So let's start with some funnies... that are TRUTH!
Yesterday was National Cat Day. Here's our princess! (Her name is Lacy.)
Halloween is tomorrow. I have a like/dislike relationship with Halloween. It's not strong enough for love/hate. I enjoy seeing the little kids dressed up in their costumes, and I like giving out candy. I don't like that my sixth and seventh grade students think Halloween should be a national holiday. I always ask them, "What holy day do you celebrate on October 31?" I also don't like all the scary stuff. Some of the homes around here look like haunted houses. I don't like to be scared on purpose! That's why I don't want horror movies. Driving to work is like watching trailers for a dozen horror movies!
Halloween was a lot of fun when my kids were younger. We would have block parties, not just for the kids, but for us as well. They are so cute when they dress up, but I don't really understand the purpose. Someone on the news said that there is a suggestion to make Halloween the last Saturday of October instead of the 31st. I'm all for that! You try teaching kids who are hyped up on extra sugar! Dislike!
