I didn’t check what happened in history or on the world’s stage on the date, but here is what happened in my little neighborhood today.
It rained. I finished my laundry. Played piano with great interest. Saw a cute movie, “Calendar Girls,” in support of the eradication of polio. Toyed with a jigsaw puzzle that depicts a Halloween scene. Had a crummy Stouffers® for supper (although not all Stouffers® are crummy). And – the redeeming factor – saw the Washington Nationals win Game Six of the World Series against the Houston Astros. Score: 7 to 2.
The Nationals weren’t even supposed to be here; they’ve come from behind in every series since the start of the playoffs. So I salute the team whether it wins or not tomorrow night. It was a great addition to my daily activities.
