My Thoughts

There’s nothing like a Google search to get the ideas flowing, especially when it comes to Halloween costume ideas. I just checked out a site www.boredpanda.com and was blown away with some of the offerings: Fancy Rain Storm, Vincent Van Gogh painting, Mirrored Man, Zombie Baby, …they are all over the top. So if Halloween is big at your house, check it out and go BIG this Halloween. And remember if you’re dressing kids – make sure the costume allows for layers – no one wants to cover up their costume with a coat. And don’t count on this gorgeous weather lasting thought the 31st.

The Mt Baker Film Fest is back again this year – Thursday, November 1 at the Mt. Baker Theatre – the perfect way to get pumped up for the snow season ahead. Also the Ski Swap will be going on at Bloedel this weekend if you need to replace or upgrade your equipment.

Many of you know that as an Alien Resident I can’t vote, but that doesn’t prevent me from urging friends to remember to cast their ballots. I’m also following a few of the races, including the congressional race in Texas. That Beto O’Rourke is one impressive guy, and even though the gap between him and Cruz is pretty large, I’d love to see him pull out an upset – a coup for a traditionally red state.

If you drive Bellingham’s Auto Row (Iowa Street) you may have noticed a very BIG, very NICE new electronic billboard in front of the Dewey Griffin dealership. If you have a cause or know of a nonprofit that would like to get their message out to the community – this billboard is for YOU! Just call the generous and community minded folks a Dewey and get them your info – and just like that you’ll have you name/cause is lights! Now that’s what I call “The Dewey Difference”!

If you have apples & jugs – bring them the The Garden Spot on Saturday, Oct. 27th – they’ll have a washing station and a cider press for you to make your own cider – VERY COOL! I hope you all get a chance to get out and enjoy the spectacular weather. It just doesn’t get any better than this.
