candy anyone?

Happy November!  It's the end of the week at the end of the month.  I'm tallying.

First of all, our Halloween numbers summarize as follows:

Groups - one
Total Trick or Treaters - two

Okay, so  now what am I gonna do with my big bag of Costco candy?  We weren't sure what to expect, what with a pandemic and all.  Plus, this is our first Halloween in this house/neighborhood/town.  We had no baseline.

I did mildly better with my Inktober numbers than with dishing out Halloween treats:  20/31

My final submissions:

I felt a bit like my "Crawl" tortoise at the end, but really, it was another fun Inktober.

This past work week was a tough one in that four residents passed away within 24 hours.  Even for an old folks home, that's high.  It's a somber thing to see bodies wheeled out, respectfully draped.  I will miss each of them and their easy going, upbeat personalities despite their final struggles.

That is rough. I'm sorry to hear about the residents.

I bought big bags of candy too and had zero actual trick or treaters. Oh, well. The kids took care of the candy for me.

All your inktober stuff is great. i like the faceless volleyball player a lot.

Morgan, surprisingly, hanging out with the old folks turned out to be one of the most enjoyable parts of this job. It's sad when they go.
Inktober came and went in a flash this year! Wish your kids would take care of our candy.
