Somethin’ Pumpkin(?) or….. Somethin’, Pumpkin
Last Saturday’s event was postponed due to the threat of unfavorable weather and the temperatures beginning to become more Autumn-like (and the fact that the local High School Homecoming dance was that evening). So as the air got noticeably cooler, we moved into the gym of a nearby church. Revelers could partake in basketball, table hockey, foosball, ping pong (or as a few decided, ping the camera guy), and other fun. Of course, inside means no hot dogs roasted over an open fire instead they were boiled.
We welcomed a few infrequent disciples. Sandy and Riley joined us. My buddy Ashton was sick and had to miss but his cousin added a different kind of spark.
Similar to last Spring’s Easter Eggstravaganza, candy was tossed all over the gym floor and the little ones scavenged all over gathering it up. Later, each of them received another treat that would almost seem like a trick, but I thought they were neat. Sitting in a circle (?), the kids received small monster figurines. I have to say that my favorite was the deranged milk carton but there were some medusa, clowns (everyone knows there is nothing more frightening than a sinister man in make up…. EWWWWWWW), and something that resembled Audrey II.
After the monsters were passed out (the toy monsters, anyway), I drove Sandy and Riley home. Returning to the church, the clean up had begun. The remaining younglings were playing some Hullabaloo (think Twister) only the winner was instructed to do a crazy dance at the end of the round.
“And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.” (Galatians 6:9)
And I believe that I shall make more use of my iPad to chronicle our weekly events. I posted a new benchmark on our Facebook page this week (not to worry, I will only post a select few here as usual). Until next time… Live Well, Laugh Often, Love Much.
