Thanks Kevyn, also sometimes known as Haggrid, for the hug at Saturday Faerie Coffee (I drink hot chocolate) which meets in Three Trees coffee shop. I'm pictured on left.
Thanks to Rick for the shirt and pants sent up from Ecuador.
Hagrid took my picture at Faerie Coffee in Bellingham around Halloween.
The pink bag is from Haggen's supermarket and says, Pink Power. My bicycle headlight made it glow at the Purple Church dance last night and I'm planning to walk the streets tonight.
Someone ask me if I planned to show it to Bellingham's favorite drag queen Betty Desire and I said "seeing her on Halloween would be like meeting the President of the United States." Halloween is a busy time for Betty. Just getting into Rumors Cabaret, where she often resides is most likely a long, long line on that day.
Surprise, Betty did make it to Faerie Coffee this late morning so I feel privileged.
I think Halloween is actually safer than Christmas and Thanksgiving. Those other days are so totally "family centered" that people travel to be with their scattered families. Auto accidents. Flying might be better, but stressful airports.
Meanwhile, Halloween has things for singles as well as families. Who ever you are, or want to be, you can stay in your own town.
There's trick or treat for families and kids. Often at malls or downtown where we trust merchants more than dwellers of our residential areas with handing out candy.
Then for adults, single, married or whatever, there's costume parties.
Hope people don't get too drunk.
I did actually see a tombstone store in Michigan that said, "Drive carefully, we can wait."
Here is another image taken of me at a local event.
Dancing and socializing at Rumors Cabaret which I do on rare occasions. The $5 we paid at the door that day benefited Whatcom County based Community Empowerment Network. A group that promotes self reliance in Brazil.
Hard to hear conversation, so I spent a lot of time on the dance floor.
It was fun.
