Blogtober14: best Halloween memory

i’ve never been much on #TBT, mainly because i’m way too lazy to dig up old pix, scan ’em and post ’em. gaah. that exhausts me just typing it. also, i truly do prefer looking forward over looking back. and also, i’m old. so my memory is fading. truth. i did just look through some […]
