It's Halloween in Mancos (and other places, too) and we're having a quiet evening at home; just finished watching "Last Chance Harvey," a sweet romantic comedy with Dustin Hoffman and Emma Thompson.
We'd have gone in to the Halloween celebration at The Valley Inn Nursing Home, but they wisely decided to do drive-through treats instead of the full-scale decoration and costuming they normally do ... H1N1. It's real; a colorful local character just died of it and more and more people are being diagnosed with it.
We did go to the SW Open School Halloween dance Thursday night. It was a delightful, positive, high-spirited event, with the kids as exuberant as always and the staff in equally good spirits. The Devil and his Angel sweetheart didn't stay late, but we had a good time.
Sandy worked at Artisans yesterday afternoon and then we went to Barb Grist's opening reception in Cortez at Desert Pearl. We were back there today after we worked at Artisans this morning.
Now, if we can master the time change tonight, we can get a good night's sleep and still make it to Meeting on time in the morning. tv
