Happy Halloween!

I’m usually not much for holidays…it’s a long story but somewhere along the way growing up, I decided I didn’t like them anymore, with the exception of Halloween.  HA!  As long as I don’t have to drive, I can get into it.  Maybe it’s the massive sweet-tooth in my head, I dunno but it’s not a bad holiday.  My girlfriend keeps reminding me that I haven’t always been such a stinkbug when it comes to things of this nature, so I thought I’d take some time to reminisce a bit.

My sisters and I loved dressing up, although my costumes were never as much work as theirs were.  I usually went for the rubber mask.

We were pretty cute.

Not sure if this was Halloween or not but once I had to dress as a clown for a Cub Scout party and do a dance.  That was rather an embarrassing moment.

Mom, of course, was so proud…

Anyway, about 11 or 12 years ago, I dressed up as the Invisible Man on Halloween and played drums in-costume all night long.  It was fun and a little warm.

I think I may have been given some kind of prize for best-dressed or something.  It’s hard to remember.  Anyway, we had a good time.  Last Year, the CRB dressed up as spooky ghouls and played a show in Athens, Georgia.  That was a blast and they even convinced me to sing the Monster Mash.  Can you imagine?

But this year, I’m taking it easy on the wild outfit/makeup routine and just going for something a lot more chill…

So, that’s it.  Have a good one, everybody and be safe out there!
