I’m a transitions guy. I like the space in between one thing and another. Nothing exemplifies this more than my love for the fall in the mountains. If you are resourceful, you can start the ski season while others are still biking, and keep biking when others start skiing. Sounds kind weird, but it always made sense to me, that’s why I moved here. Which leads to my favorite holiday, Halloween. With a young child, we are veterans of doing the Main Street stroll on Halloween. You see so many familiar faces in one place, but sometimes you have to try hard to recognize folks, because the costumes can often be that good. I have a friend and fellow Skid who went as a Horse’s Ass one year. No idea how he got the other person to be the front of the horse. It sort of worked well for him, though. The highlight of this year was the mad frenzy to get to Grappa while they were handing out larger than life Billy Wonka bars. Inside was a real Golden Ticket, a gift card good at the restaurant for Mom and Dad. Here are a few photos to give you a flavoring of what it was like up on Historic Main Street.
