This is from my journal, October 31, 2012
We’re watching Charlie Brown and The Great Pumpkin. I love The Great Pumpkin. Linus is such a dear. The other night was a perfect Great Pumpkin night. The nights where the clouds billow and a damp breeze comes down from the mountains. You can smell wet leaves and the fresh, sharp scent of a freshly started fire. It only comes in mid to late October.
I rarely have time to type a post for the actual time I want. Right now as I type this, it is mid February. I was going through my journal after a week of being ill and I just needed to see what had been going on lately. (I sometimes refresh my memory on what I want to write by re-reading the pages) I found my post/entry on this and though, wow, what a great little thing to have typed up for October.
I happen to love The Great Pumpkin, and I look forward to watching it every year after growing up and NEVER watching it. So what if I’m 31 and I like an old cartoon. My father still enjoys it. What’s not to love? It’s endearing. It’s kind of tradition. Right?
Hoping everyone has a spectacular and safe Halloween.
