Happy Halloween 2020

Happy Halloween 2020

Okay boys and girls, it’s Halloween joke time!

How did they know Dracula had Covid? Because of his “Coffin”

What do you call a hot dog on October 31st?  “A Halloweenie”

Did you know Charlie Brown went on a date with Bonnie Raitt? He heard she wanted “Pumpkin to talk about.” Okay, some of you will get this but if you don’t let me explain. Bonnie Raitt is a Grammy Award winning singer that had a song in the 90’s called “Something to talk about.” And before you tell me not to quit my day job, the real jokes on you. I don’t have a day job.

First I would like to thank Tyrell & Cigee Thorngren and Snake River BMX for raising over $500 yesterday with their wonderful Halloween fundraiser. Also a big thank you to Mark & Trish Chapple who donated over $100 from T-shirt sales at the same event. I had so much fun and the money will be used to help local cancer patients and their families. You will be happy to know I dressed up in my usual costume. A grouchy old cowboy. It’s basically the clothes I wear when I go on a cattle roundup. The best part is the savings of not having to buy a costume each year.

Normally for Halloween we dress up and try to scare each other. But this is 2020 so nothing is going to be normal. If we were in the Netflix show Stranger Things, we would appropriately be in the Upside Down. We should be wearing masks so we could scare people. Instead people are scared if we are not wearing a mask! There is another setback of Halloween 2020. It’s kind of difficult to be scared of people dressed up like Freddy Krueger, Michael Myers, or Jason from Friday the Thirteenth in a Zoom meeting. I would have said Dracula, Frankenstein, and the Wolfman but then I would have to explain to the Millennials who they were. If you really want to scare someone, post some pictures of the people in Walmart. Especially if they are not wearing a mask.

   It is kind of sad that we will not be able to do some of the traditional Halloween events, but I am sure it will be like most of the other events like High School Graduation. We will find a way to make it special and make some unique memories with our families. The most important thing to remember is to have fun and stay safe. So I wish all of you a very Happy and Extraordinary Halloween and hope you all make some terrific memories. Thanks for reading.

Next week: Pick Me Up Drink fundraiser update

P.S. Another advantage of the Grouchy Cowboy costume for 2020: The neckerchief is now a Covid Apocalypse mask.
