My brother and I saw this when I drove up to see my father for the last time. He died early on Halloween morning, sadly. I don’t really feel like posting at length about it now. Maybe someday. He would have turned 90 on Christmas Eve, so he had a good long life. Not that even longer would have been better.

Belated Halloween 2018 Video

Sorry I’m so late with this video. These are scenes from this year’s Halloween celebration in the West Village of Manhattan, where I live. A display that many people objected to last year returned. She’s the last one in the video and I put a warning before she appears. One father looked at it, laughed, and summed up the children’s dilemma. “Blood, candy, blood, candy?” Which would prevail, the children’s desire for candy or their fear of blood?
