Happy Halloween Bloggers

We had a nice Halloween surprise today. We went to the hospital cafeteria to eat lunch which is Mexican food on Thursdays. When we got up to the cashier to pay she said it's free. I said all of it, who is paying for it? You know the saying "there is no free lunch". She said compliments of the hospital. After lunch we walked the hall from the lobby to near where the patient rooms start. Every year each department enters a pumpkin into a contest and they display them on long tables in the hallway. There was everything you could think of and mostly pertaining to the hospital services such as a pumpkin having surgery or a pumpkin having a baby. They really have some good imagination. I hope they leave them there for a few days so I can get a picture of a few of the best ones. A friend from San Antonio came out to spend a couple of days and nights with me. We stayed up way too late getting caught up and now I've been too tired to get on the computer. We took her on some of the country roads as she likes to paint. We did find some beautiful longhorn cattle in a field with extra long horns so she will have something to keep her busy for a while. Tomorrow a friend from near Medina Lake who just lost her husband Jerome that I wrote about is coming and we will go to lunch and visit a while.

A really free lunch. NICE.
I do like the traditional jack-o-lanterns, but the newer carvings are more art. They amaze me. I do hope you can get some pictures.

We had nary a Goblin tonight. We did have a base Chaplain stop by to talk.

Catching up with friends is one of life's pleasures. Good on you.

They have it here at our hospital to where we can go eat, but we don't ever go. Before my brother and his wife passed away a few years ago some days I would go get them a take out at lunch time. That was nice of them serving free lunch.

Our hospital used to have a pumpkin carving contest each year...but they did away with it. Glad they treated you and didn't trick you!!! That was super nice of them. How nice you have so many friends to come and visit with you!!! I understand why....it's the same reason we all come visit you here....you are super nice!
