Happy Halloween everyone. It is finally here. And the weatherman says is should actually feel like October today. That can be both a good thing and a bad thing.

Well, my friends in Texomaland, I’m sorry to say that I’m leaving.
One of the greatest things about the Internet is how it makes the marketplace for information truly worldwide — almost like a “World Wide Web,” or something. A nice bit of writing can find its way to my little ol’ computer screen in Sherman, even if it was scribbled half-a-world away.
Man this week is going slow. I know that this article will hit the streets on Wednesday, which means the week is more than half over, but getting here has seemed slow to me — like pulling taffy slow.
One of the major tasks I’ve assigned myself since moving out on my own has been to learn how to cook for myself. Most people who know me well give me odd looks when I say this. Prior to joining the staff at the Herald Democrat, I worked in kitchens for over a decade.
The world of fashion is full of mysteries. Not just high fashion, mind you, but general, everyday business wear. Ties, for example, are a pretty stupid thing to wear. They just kind of dangle there, around your neck, matching or not matching whatever other clothes you wear. High heels, too, are far from what anyone would call practical, unless you are trying to keep yourself from climbing staircases too quickly.
Near-field communication is nothing new. The technology, through which two electronic devices in close proximity can communicate with each other wirelessly, was first included in a mobile phone all the way back in 2006, in fact.
This past weekend my mother, my two sisters-in-law and I took my darling little niece to the Kite Festival in Pottsboro. Oh what fun we had.

I’ve already got my eyes peeled for the perfect pumpkin. Every time I go to a grocery store, I’m on high alert. I haven’t taken any action yet — it is, after all, a little early in the month — but I’m ready if the opportunity presents itself. I will find some great ones, and I will carve them. And boy, I tell you, it will be spooky.
