Happy Halloween

Hey Folks,

In the past, I’ve not been a big fan of Halloween.  I don’t dress up, and I live in a condo so no trick or treaters to cater to.  But now that the shop is open (and I’m retired) I’ve decided to join the neighborhood handout.  So Kris and I will be doling out the sweets tomorrow evening between 3 and 6 PM.

Here’s a photo of my Halloween decoration for the front window.  The skull is to spook the kids, the inscription on the tombstone* is to spook the parents.  If you can’t read it, it says:

Remember me as you
pass by
As you are now, so once
was I
As I am now, so you
must be
Therefore prepare to
follow me

*Taken from a tombstone in the Pioneer Cemetery, Sumner, Washington, where my Grandpa is interred.
