October is the beginning of cooler air and shorter days, longer sleeves, jeans vs. shorts and football. October is pumpkins – pumpkins to bake, pumpkins to carve, funny pumpkins, scary pumpkins and pumpkin spice in everything digestible. Every four years October is Election-Eve month with last minute mud-slinging, unfair propaganda, promises no one can keep and sometimes heated disagreements between friends.
October is also Breast Cancer Awareness month and before we turn to orange and black for Halloween, we will be inundated with the color pink. There will be pink shirts, pink ribbons, pink shoes and even pink hair, all to make sure no one forgets that breast cancer is real, it is prevalent, and it is in need of funding.
