The Current Normal – Too Much and Never Enough – Happy Hallowe’en

An obvious homage to Mary Trump’s book is the idea for this post. If you have not read the book yet, let me just say that it explains a lot.

Nonetheless, Happy Hallowe’en to all my readers. Celebrate safely and stay well.

After working for 43+ years (38 years 7 months with my last company), I finally got that promotion I waited my entire career for……retirement. I have been exploring this new career for the past 3+ years and while it is not always exciting, the chance to do what I want for myself and my family instead of what my company wanted me to do has been rewarding. While I still miss the social aspect of working with a team of great people, I have managed to keep in touch with many from my former team and I have many friends and family members who now fulfill this part of my life. Now that my Patty has retired, we are able to spend more time in pursuits and with people who are near and dear to us. I enjoy photography, gardening, working with my hands, walking, cycling, skiing, travelling, reading and creating special photo and video productions obtained in my first pastime. I may not become wealthy in any of these pursuits, but I already feel I am rich in life experiences far beyond any expectation.

  1. looks like someone threw up Halloween all over their yard – lol. Happy Halloween to you and Pat. We are going to do the usual this year – couple of decorations (although no pumpkins were carved this year) – fire pit and a table with the goodies on it. I’ll probably use tongs to hand them out. Wonder if we’ll get the usual 200 trick or treaters – I doubt it.

    1. Now, that is as appropriate a description as I have ever seen, Ann. We will be turning out the lights and locking the doors. Not worth it for the 7 T & T’rs we usually get. More chips and candy for us. Enjoy the day and thanks for reading. Allan


    1. And to you. I just can’t figure out where these guys store it all. They put up displays for Hallowe’en, Christmas and Easter, to the same density. We are trick or treating ourselves tonight with chips, candy and wine. Stay well and thanks for reading. Allan

    1. Agreed. Apparently second to only Christmas for decorations and consumerism. A lot of Boomers compensating for the fact they only got to go out in a bed sheet. Tonight, lights out, doors locked and we are only Trick or Treating ourselves. Stay well and thanks for reading Bernie. Allan


      1. But I’m the end of the Bommers and I don’t get it. We went out and did More tricks than treats but they were pretty harmless. More like Gen X I think. Ah well rural life means zero kids and zero stress about it.

    1. Over the top, for sure. here seem to be a lot more houses with elaborate displays here this year. Likely a result of the current situation. We are being Hallowe’en grinches this year., sitting in the dark….with candy…and chips….and wine. Boo. Stay well Lori. Allan

  2. I hope you had a great Halloween, Allan. It does feel kind of weird writing it when Christmas is just around the corner, but that happens when I miss your Halloween post! Lol 🙂 How time flies this year! Aiva

    1. It was enjoyable. We don’t get many trick or treaters to our door, so we just bought treats that we like and snacked our ay through the evening. Yes, why is the year passing so quickly? My Hallowe’en post actually was a bit political, about the crazy situation down South, which is still going on. I wish all political leaders could be like Jacinda in NZ. Stay well Allan
