Beth Visits America

  • bethmap.jpg

  • Come see what Beth's up to! She's living in her pickup truck (lovingly known as Tach), and rambling the byways and backroads of America. When she has money, that is. When she runs out, she stops and gets a job until she can drive on again. Stop in here, add your comments, and wish her the best. And heck, if you have a driveway, can she sleep in it?

You could come be a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle with the kid. Your choice between Donatello, Leonardo, or Michaelangelo. Raphael is spoken for :)


How about a potage of veggies?

One year my sister Anne went as a bunch of grapes, in a leotard with leaves on her head & lots of purple balloons on her body. I teach kindergarten & Halloween is a big favorite of mine, too, & also of the kids I teach. Sometimes I have kids in my class whose parents won't let them do Halloween or any other fun holiday, not even birthdays, for religious reasons (what kind of a God doesn't want kids to have fun?) & I always feel sorry for them & hope they will rebel when they grow up, cuz Halloween is the funnest. It's really too bad that most schools no longer allow kids to wear Halloween costumes to school, the way my kids did when they were in Elementary School. Thinking back, it was really all in fun, even the year Suzanne was in 6th grade at Ocean View and she & her best friend went as these really flatchested Playboy Bunnies!!! No one busted them, no pun intended here--isnt it funny the way our brains work? They just frolicked around with the witches & ghosts & vampires & brides of Frankensteins, without a "carrot" in the world. If it were today, and 2 preadolescent girls came to school on Halloween dressed as Playboy bunnies, things would certainly be "multiplied" all out of proportion and their parents would probably be turned in to CPS, having to "burrow" through lots of paperwork from the system. My dad always used to call rabbit droppings "smartness pills, " after an old joke he used to tell about 2 old men who were walking along and saw some small black things on the ground. One said to the other, "look! smartness pills! try one!" After eating one, the friend said, "Why, those are just rabbit droppings!" to which the other old guy replied, "See, you're getting smarter already!" Well, whatever you decide to be, I know you'll have fun. I'd like to knit Christmas stockings for everyone this year--got any quick, cute, colorful patterns? Love, Linda (Gaynelle's friend, dead Stuart's sister, Ruth's sister-in-law, Laura Beth's Aunt, mother of a former Playboy Bunny, fun-loving K tchr, just ME)


Have you considered Whitefish for Halloween night? It is notorious for it's halloween celebrations. For a conservative hoity toityish Montana town, you'd be surprised. People come out of the woodwork. It is more than fun. It's been a few years or so that I've been out on the town there on that particular night, since our kids have come into the picture, but apparently it's still happening. Oh, and the trick or treating is huge, too. Real door to door trick or treating after dark, not just at the mall during the day. Some people I know there are planning a neighborhood rummage sale soon as a fundraiser to pay for all the candy they hand out that night. Anyways, I just thought you might like it there. Where are you, anyways?
