What’s More Frightening Than Halloween 2020!? Friday Night Music?

What’s More Frightening Than Halloween 2020!? Friday Night Music?

Hey, you little devils! Tomorrow is Halloween but tonight is Devil’s Night. Witches, demons, goblins, and ghosts will be at play, and tomorrow people of all ages will be wearing more masks than ever, all around the world. Masks of a different sort, however, designed not to frighten but repel tiny things you can’t see.

There’s a monstrous scenario facing this country 3 days after Halloween. The possibility that the left gains more control over our lives. Oh, that would be an insidious invasion, attacking everything we hold dear. Scary indeed.

I voted in person yesterday while wearing a mask, but unveiled my true colors, hopes, and prayers, on that ballot. And we’ll once again see what sort of people populate this country as votes are counted.

This is a Halloween we’ve not seen before. Am guessing the candy and costume industry are braced for big nosedives in sales, like bobbing for apples while trying to keep heads above water.

I’m not frightened by witches and such, unless you include some of those on the left, all of which appear possessed by the far left to me. They can ruin our lives with evil ideas, and can induce a very dark Winter, followed by seasons of downturns, morphing golden years into declining days.

But enough of political nightmare. Good can seize the day and spread for years. In fact, it will. So I’m going to lighten and listen up, as we indulge spirits of our better angels, while letting the macabre run free for a couple of nights.

In some places, trick or treating will be done from cars. We’ll be doing that here in addition to allowing door to door treating for a couple of hours.

Bwahahahaha! The following is a tale from North Michigan…



“The Way I Heard It” by Mike Rowe “His Brother’s Keeper”.

“The Way I Heard It” by Mike Rowe “His Brother’s Keeper”.

I haven’t posted the 2 most recent “The Way I Heard It” podcasts. Am wondering if you went and listened to them on your own. If not, they are presented here below along with many others. You know how the format works.

I’m exactly 5 days older than Mike Rowe. Had to look it up after listening to his talk with a high school buddy of his, which is included in the most recent presentation.

Anyway, listen to the ones you haven’t yet heard. They’re always interesting and shed new light on familiar and not so familiar people and events.

Next Friday is Halloween Eve, but this Friday is past peak color time in North Michigan, and it was psychedelic.

Fall fell like a huge box of fruit loops, skittles, and lifesavers, spilled all about. Oh, we’re suckers and sweet tarts for this time of year here.

A Godsent, rainbow, eye-candy-gram, that all received for smiles and miles around.

He can goose and caboose ya with colors like fuchsia!

There are scores of Fall pictures I’ve taken around Northern Michigan over the past few years during what I call my “photo walks”. The ones above from the cemetery are all from this month. Here are some others you may have seen before.



Compared to yours our Fall’s further along, but now it’s time to break into song. I suppose the theme is color, Fall, God, and beauty?




Ok, your turn.

North Michigan Summers are like lingering shooting stars, meteor showers, and loitering comets. Birthdays which stretch into months. Annual pardons, reprieves, scattered X’s marking multiple getaways for folks fleeing heat, and year round residents welcoming some.

Extreme heat here is 90, and those be few. Lots of 70’s and low to mid 80’s. Big ships, fishing boats, and sail boats. Intense green, strutting seasonal stuff, aware it’s stepping time is fleeting time. So it shows while it can, Bigtime.

It shows what crayons aspire to show. Displays what palettes pretend to know. It kodachromes, kaleidoscopes, and changes to verbs. Inspires weeeeeees, wows, and permanence wishes. It comes to pass, while we beckon it stay. Reminds us of promises placed upon. Gonna do lists, with headings like: “for sure”, “without fail”, and remember to “don’t forget”.

Our Summers might be better than yours, but your Winters could win some points. Fall lives here though, in Splendor, near Spring and Summer, Flip Road, Zip Code, wish you were here mode.
