An Omg! Moment--i Was Only 50 Years Old!

I look at the date on the bottom picture and I realize it is exactly 31 years ago and I still recognize that guy--WOW!!

I was never into the Halloween scene especially since the 1970s when everyone dressed as either Judy Garland or a Nun!

At that time I was working at Wag's on University Drive and Commercial Boulevard--it has since been 3 different businesses--and Gonzalez, who I had worked with in New York, had brought in a painting kit knowing I wouldn't be dressed up for Halloween and got to work so there I was walking around serving customers as a cat! Back in 'those days' we didn't have phones with cameras or point and shoot digital cameras so there were no selfies or such!

I was looking through my pictures because I know I have one of my two friend's, each named Michael, dressed up to go out to the bars--yes one was Judy and the other a Nun--but I can't find it--will have to look again.


Thinking of the holiday and the year I realize it is also 31 years ago both Michaels and one of my mentors, Albyn, died, 2 in the month of October. The three of them loved celebrating Halloween and it has become a bittersweet time for me--I miss them but I see kids all dressed up getting ready to 'trick or treat' and I just want to say Happy Halloween and have a lot of fun!
