Good morning! No, I didn't sleep enough. At all.
Congrats to the Nationals, winning their first World Series (pro baseball)! And props to the Astros, who gave them a good run for it!
Happy HALLOWEEN! to those who celebrate or like it or just want to go trick-or-treating likje kids. We have rain here, all day, all evening, so... I suspect we'll have no kids show up. Or maybe two or three. We filled a five-gallon bucket with candy, per usual, b/c we never get this weather on Halloween... till this year. And now... drizzle = fizzle. Alas. No yard set-up, etc.
That said, we live in hope. Or I do, because no way I'm letting Hubby near that much candy. I love chocolate, but he loves anything sweet. Oh, I hope we get the kids in some number! Usually we see about 80, and a "bad year" is 60, but we've never had rain like this. Not this consistent draining cold ouch-inducing...
Yep. Bad fibro weather!
Today in 1959, in Moscow (Russia), a former US Marine named Lee Harvey Oswald announced he'd never return to the United States. Obviously he did, as he was on a grassy knoll in Dallas in November 1963 to kill POTUS John F Kennedy. (Or did he? People will argue this one for-freaking-ever.)
Today in 1517, angry Catholic monk Martin Luther nailed his "95 theses" (statemenets) to a church door, thus kicking off what became the Protestant REformation... and... on this exact same day in 1999, the Roman Catholic and Lutheran churches signed a "joint declaration on the doctrine of justification" to end at least part of their differences. Only took 482 years, right? ;-)
Today also marks the annivesary of the death of magician and illusionist Harry Houdini, in 1926, of peritonitis with (according to some sources) gangrene, following a ruptured appendix. Some speculation remains that the appendix ruptured because he bragged up his abs and a student punched him to test him. Others say the punch(es) weren't sufficient to cause that damage and Houdini may have already been coming down sick, or... Well, at any rate, he passed away. He'd been ill for several days, but insisted on performing even after diagnosed with appendicitis, before he collapsed.
Hugs to all, and stay strong. We have each other. we'll be okay.
