Every year I do the same thing. I wait to the last minute to put together a costume. Interesting enough though I usually wind up winning the contest or being recognized as the creepiest, scary guy on the block. I'm doing the same thing today. My mind keeps coming up with a little twist here, an idea there, and tweak it again. I've got 4 or 5 hours to prepare.
I want some beer right now also. Guess I'll be making a run to the liquor store. I better do that before I get into costume. It just dawned on me though I'll have to be in costume to get my son from practice tonight. Boy, he's gonna love that.....HA HA HA HA HAHHHHHHAAAAAA.
Here's your sketch pad page for the day:

I read an article the other day that failure is the most important ingredient to success. Yea, I've heard this before and I've said it many times. The angle taken in this article was your chance will come around but you have to have your hand in the air to be picked when it does, so just keep you hand up. I might of paraphrased that poorly so here is the link to the article: Scott Adams' Article
I feel I've had my fair share of failure and no lack of sticking my hand up to be picked. I'll will say it is frustrating to recognize that it is a numbers a game and you just have to wait for your number. Of course what do all those poor saps that never achieve success have to say about failure...didn't work out to well for them. On many a tomb stone should be carved "He died with his hand in the air. He got picked for the wrong thing one more time."

To be fair I don't recall ever seeing very many, if any, pictures of my parents as kids and young adults aside from the yearbook head shots, so my kids shouldn't feel jilted in anyway. But their kids, yea they will see every day of my sons' life. It may take them hours or days to file through all the snap shots, home video, phone pictures and videos, selfies, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and the like but they will have a very clear picture. It may not be a great thing. Maybe memories are better than captured reality.
*** Oh, by the way I'm now a 43 inch chest and 33 inch waist. Not too bad.

Since I don't have a TV guide (I really miss that weekly newspaper insert of my youth, so much easier than the cable provided guide channel, but I digress) I went to Google and searched when the Charlie Brown Halloween special would be on. I found that ABC is going to broadcast it on Halloween night. My first thought and frustration was who is going to be home to watch it? Everyone is out gathering candy and scaring little kids. Then it dawned on me that ABC must either know or feel that the only ones interested in watching the classic Great Pumpkin is adults, older baby boomers who's kids are already moved out. For the kids of today the cartoon is so old school, so 2D, so passive that it is just a boring, quint, antique that falls in the category of old B&W TV shows.
Oh what a shame. I guess I'll have to set the old VCR up to tape it. Just after I figure out how to set the clock on that thing.
