If you haven't discovered the Pioneer Woman's blog yet, you are in for a treat. Her "true-life-novelette," called "Black Heels to Tractor Wheels" is reason enough, as are her photographs chronicling her everyday life raising a family on a cattle ranch. And then there is her cookery and homeschooling ideas.
But in her posting about Halloween this year, she made me think about something new: Halloween in a retirement home.
Her small town's retirement home opened its doors to trick-or-treaters. Go to the posting and look at the photos, please.
Why doesn't every retirement home do this? I loved the idea, and the smiles on the residents' faces tell the value of the it.
All right, I'm stepping off of my soapbox right now.
