Another Halloween in Glen Arbor is in the book. The trick-or-treaters were lucky enough to have a cool but mostly dry afternoon on Sunday to do their trick-or-treating, and trick-or-treat they did. There were mobs of kids and parents watching these trick-or-treaters for three hours or more. Some of the kids were still in their parents’ arms getting an early start on life and trick-or-treating. But they all had a great time.

We had about 350 trick-or-treaters at our door and I’m understanding that Arts Bar had over that with about 425. Obviously daylight trick-or-treating in Glen Arbor is again a success.

Unfortunately it appears that the color tour is all but ended and the sticks are out to stay.

Not much going on around here now until Thanksgiving, which of course will start the most anticipated season there is.

I was reminded that when you go to see the Glen Arbor Readers Theater presentation of The Bishop’s Wife on Dec. 2 and 3 that it will be an outstanding presentation not only because of the cast, but also director Teddy House.

An early reminder for something I sincerely hope I don’t have to remind people of — Veterans Day is Friday, Nov. 11. I would hope that even with what’s happening with the elections and the division of parties and people’s ideals that the veterans would not be forgotten. It is because of these veterans that we are able to have this division, and people can speak their ideals out loud without fear of persecution. Now is the time to show your patriotism no matter your beliefs. Fly the flag and be proud of your country.

I am sure I don’t have to remind anybody to get out and vote next week. I’ve always said, if you don’t vote don’t complain.

In two weeks it will be Bambi’s worst nightmare. Keep your head down in the woods.

Happy birthday wishes to another special person in my life, my granddaughter Jordan. Enjoy the day, we will be thinking of you and missing you.

Also happy birthday wishes to Gwenyth Grace Aylsworth, Ezekiel Baxter and the bread guy’s granddaughter Abigail.

As of this writing I still can’t say wait till next year when it comes to the Cubs, amazing.

As always be careful, be safe and be kind.
