A visit from children on Halloween

    Halloween is over but I want to tell you about the 300 kids from the neighboring elementary school. The children, all in their costumes, came to our apartment house right at lunch time. They paraded through the front lobby, then into the dining room where the 100 seniors were having their lunch. They weren’t going too fast as they circled the dining room, as those with masks couldn’t see too well and slowed down the procession. There were a lot of Bat-man and Superman costumes, a lot of football and baseball players, many who were a Fairy Princess, and many who were ghosts. Their march was entertaining, as were the pre-school kids brought over for us to see by their leaders and mothers. The best costume was a toddler with a skunk outfit; that fur would be good on most cool Halloweens but this was a warm day.
