Winslow senior citizens are meeting on Monday and Tues- day at the Community Cen- ter. Petersburg seniors meet in the courthouse basement. There were no postcards this week at Sweets Column, Winslow, IN 47598. Winslow Patoka River is low and you can see all the trees at the bottom. We did have rain, but no like the other towns had. I'd say we got less than an inch, but the rainbow was ex- citing to see. The White Riv- er has gone down and the Wa- bash River is the same. The winds were strong one day and the limbs that have fallen have made the bonfire area a little taller. More leaves are changing colors every week, now we have seen gold, red, orange, purple and the yellow has just begun to turn. As you view the woods, you will see that it's the beginning and even if the colors are dull, they still have small sec- tions that, to me, look great and I know that more leaves will change in the coming weeks. The leaves are falling and some trees have no leaves at all. The walnut tree has all its nuts taken off by the squir- rels and its leaves have turned and are beginning to fall. The pine trees at Twin Pitts are al- so changing to a gold color and all along the path there are some colors to make the area a place to see beauty. A lot more fields are being harvested and now you can see what was behind those corn stalks. In some areas, you can see a far distance and in other areas, you see houses and barns and the many silos. In the past week, I have seen our deer walking through the yards in the early morning hours. One day, I saw one doe walking to the apple tree and the other day, I saw two deer walking to a clump of trees, one could have been a buck. I like to see them in our area of town. Other parts of town, in the wooded sections, we have seen one or two. At the Winslow Lions Club, we had a guest speaker, Li- ons District Governor Lee Cubs and his wife, Nancy, who shared with the club how he became a Lion and his goals for our district in the years ahead. Each governor has pins made up and I have his pin along with the other pins from years back. They are all on my purse. We also had a couple of Lions from the Oakland City Lions of Dale and Sue Leffler. Sue is the district zone chair- man. At the end, Leroy had a birthday and he opened his presents and two cards were the same card, from family. We also ate cake. It's nice to have family eat out and enjoy the day on the lake. Mom enjoyed her time out with have her chippers, but she could not eat most of her meal. We took Terri and Mom for a scenic drive to see the harvested fields, trees of color and the fall and Hal- loween decorations in sever- al yards. We also saw differ- ent objects in the clouds. Mom will be in the area for the rest of October. Have you cleaned out your chimney for winter use? It's al- so time to patch those leaks. The 57 Bones family is sit- ting around the campfire roasting hot dogs on a chilly night. Winslow, Arthur and Camp- belltown have loads of Hallow- een and fall decoration to be seen by us and it also puts a smile on your face to see a big spider with witches, ghosts hanging from the trees with colorful hats, many colors of dragons, graveyards and skel- etons on a four-wheeler pull- ing a wagon of kids in the hay. Some yards have been TP'd, and there is a casket with its dead and lots more. You all have a great week ahead and don't forget to slow down and see the changing colors of trees in your neck of the woods. Keep an eye on family and friends. Slow down for our kids and always smile. As always, smile, wave and say "hi" to everyone you see this week. Spirit Halloween stores appear annually like a cool breath on the neck. They fill suburban shanties, such as vacant Toys R Us and Stein Marts. Their racks overflow with bagged costumes, so that we might fulfill our destiny as "High Seas Honey" or "Inflat- able King Shark" or "Flamin' Hot Cheeto." However, the supply chain remains seriously disrupt- ed. With weeks until the big day, Spirit Halloween and oth- er seasonal retailers are re- porting that some inventory has not been delivered. This is leaving customers in the Lurch (do you see the festive thing I did there?). This can only mean one thing. Well, it can mean a lot of things, but let's focus. It's time to get creative. With a few household items, you can create a Halloween ensemble truly emblematic of this toi- let-swirl era. Cue John Carpenter: UH, SUPPLY CHAIN DISRUPTION You could be literal and string yourself with severed chains, an Amazon symbol on one shoulder and a toy house on the other. Or you could venture out on Halloween in regular clothes and explain that your costume did not get here on time due to a broken economic model that reveals holes in systems we've long taken for granted. Provide ominous talking points from Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg. Your friends will say something like, "Who hurt you, Jennifer? " DEATH OF COMPASSION You need to approximate a hooded cape and a scythe. A dark sheet will work, and let's see ... oh, a butter knife. Point the knife at everyone who isn't exactly like you, and instead of asking them questions to better understand, tell them their time is up. Give them the bad candy that no one wants, which we all know includes Tootsie Rolls and candy corn. Be sure to stay anonymous, though, so that you will face zero repercussions. NUMBNESS MONSTER Forget Frankenstein; it's time to get detached! Use the bubble wrap or packing foam from items you ordered in March that showed up yes- terday. Have a friend wrap it around your body in lay- ers. Leave a face hole just big enough to breathe — but not comfortably. It's supposed to be scary. Now, ask people to poke you. Delight in the fact that you can't feel anything at all. MISTRESS OF LANGUISHING Sometimes, you just want to look pretty on Halloween. Break out the red lipstick and combine your sexiest outfit with the psychological con- cept of "languishing," a dull- ing of the senses that comes with a pandemic that will nev- er end. Make a little sign and string it around your neck. Write: "I am often somewhat joyless, but that's to be expect- ed." ONE BIG GIANT HUGE ENORMOUS MASK The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention still suggests we mask up, even when vaccinated. Play it safe by covering your entire head in fabric. Where can you find some? Oh, right, in bed. There, go ahead and climb in. OK, now put it over your head, that's right. Mmhm. I'm just going to shut off this light, and... no, shh. Your costume looks great. You are safe. Hap- py Halloween. Stephanie Hayes is a columnist at the Tampa Bay Times in Flor- ida. Follow her at @ stephhayes- writes on Facebook, @ stephhayes.
