Trick or Treat

I remember a costume party that I attended back in 1986. It was such fun seeing all my workmates dressed in costumes. Some of them were disguised so well that we had to try to figure out who they were. The Electronics Technician Master Chief was dressed like a big black hairy gorilla. Nobody knew who he was. He would only grunt and shake his head when asked questions. His identity was finally revealed when his wife came over and removed the gorillas head. Hey, I didn't even know tht this guy could laugh, nevermind party with the rest of us.

Seems like a hundred years ago. I wore slacks, white shirt buttoned up with a big pocket protector filled with pencils in my shirt pocket, vest buttoned up, garters to keep my sleeves up, and carried a calculator and a briefcase. I was a bean-counter back in 1986. Today, I would probably call myself my 401k but I would wear a trenchcoat with pennies glued to it. Sad.

My life has changed in the last couple of years - some bumps, I retired from quilting, and then I moved to Texas. I'm anxious to see what new adventures await me in the next phase of my life.
