I feel its fright.
Three days until
Election Day and, as bad as this year has been, we’ve no idea if No 45, in a
fit of anger, will push the red button to screw us over if he loses and/or how
much worse things will get if he wins.
Many are on
edge. Myself included.
Instead of training
on Thursday of this week, I trained on Friday and would have worn a Halloween
costume. Last year, I trained in my 2019 Batman 5k costume. However, because I’d
planned to stop by the grocery store after, I dressed in regular workout gear,
with the exception that I wore the top I plan to wear every time I go to the
No one said anything, but I caught a few amused understanding smiling eyes.
All I needed from the
market was potatoes, spinach, tomatoes, gluten free pasta, ground turkey. But,
when I saw others with overflowing carts, realizing they were preparing for the
worst, I began to wonder if I shouldn’t also panic and prepare for the worst.
But I didn’t because,
whichever way the wind blows, I don’t think things will go back to those first

Billy the Kid vs. Dracula, Frankenstein, Frankenstein’s Revenge etc., I’ll now

I actually love all
the Food Network Holiday Competitions, but those sickly sweet Hallmark type movies make me
ill, especially James Stewart’s “It’s a Wonderful Life”.
Billy the Kid vs.
Dracula was a hoot!
The network really
dug into the archives to pull out that 1966 “horror/western” starring John Carradine
Bless his heart,
Carradine was so old and feeble that, when he stooped over to kidnap the girl
from her bed, he almost dropped her.
And, instead of quickly fleeing, cape flying in the wind, girl in his arms, he drove off with her in a horse drawn buggy.
The part that really killed me was when bullets, of course, failed to stop Dracula, how Billy the Kid came up with the most ridiculous way of ending Dracula's reign of terror. So funny, though not meant to be funny, that you've got to see it.
