October. Great month if you ask me. Thanksgiving. My brother's birthday. Halloween. David's birthday. Of course, Ed lives in Edmonton, AB and I live here and anyway, he's got his own family. But I do wish him happy birthday every year. Not that he remembers when his birthday is. This year, David and I will not do anything for Thanksgiving. No turkey. Nothing. It's not that we don't have anything to be thankful for, it's just that celebrating is starting to take more out of us, than just doing nothing. It's going to be really terrible when I'm older. David is 72 this year. And of course, let's not forget Halloween. I'm already looking forward to television. I know they'll have Michael Meyers on again this year. I don't watch him but it's comforting to know that he'll always be there. I haven't dressed up for Halloween for years now and I don't know if I'll do so this year. Costumes are so expensive. When I grew up, we made our own costumes. Sheets and construction paper. Dad's hats. I don't know about these princess costumes and sexy three year olds. I'm sure the makers think they're being funny and cute but it's to young to be sexy. At any rate, I'll be looking around this year, I have received my book order and will be looking for a place to read to people and sell my books. If this is like other Octobers, it will be a good time.
