BOO...don't let the goblins grab you this Halloween!

This is the perfect Jack O'Lantern for those of us who are dismayed and disappointed by this tiresome political campaign season, the economic meltdown, and the loss of the Tampa Bay Rays at the World Series. The expression carved into this pumpkin captures perfectly all of the emotions many of us have during these scary times. One of my favorite magazines is "The New Yorker" which has such excellent writers as well as its wonderful cover art (as seen in the picture above) and delightful cartoons. My subscription to it helps me to stay sane as it keeps my sense of humor alive and healthy and my mind sharp. It has been said, and I believe it, that laughter is the best medicine of all. My prolonged ordeal of recovering from eye surgery has been NO fun and games, but I do try to laugh...both out loud and mentally... whenever I can and I do feel better afterwards.
