This was sweet and sad! I could literally feel all of your emotions and excitement. Like I was transported in a time-machine back to the 80's. Your details were so vivid and sentimental. I had tears remembering with you. My dad, Charlie was exactly like your dad. He was not my bio father, but definitely the man I considered my dad. Halloween was his favorite holiday too. I remember him setting up graves and hideouts for when the Trick O Treaters would come by. I had never experienced Halloween like that until I moved in with them. He liked to play pranks all year long and scare us. Halloween was the big annual showdown.

I agree with you. Kids give us a glimpse and opportunity to feel alive and youthful. I pray that you get your third surge through your grand-babies. I think that will be the sweetest!
