Dr. House

Mat went shopping yesterday and bought ... a cane. He's tired a lot of the time lately, and the cane helps to support his weight. He's kind of distinguished looking with the cane, in a Dr. House kind of way. If only it had flames painted on it.

Any volunteers?

This is a "vacation" week for Mat -- meaning no chemo. The timing is handy, because the kids have a demanding schedule of Halloween festivities this week.

The preschool trunk-or-treat was Saturday; the ward party is Thursday; and class parties and trick-or-treating of course are Friday. Colin has decided to be "black Spiderman." Ian is still torn between a vampire, a soccer player, and a Red Sox player.

Let's hope he decides soon, and that there's time to throw it together before Friday!

It's been fun to see all of you at various events - hayride & preschool Halloween party! The cane would look nice with flames. Brian's mom has one with poker cards and gambling images. I can find out where she got it if Mat is interested! he he he.

I think he should get Rainbow Bright and her friends painted on it :0) Matchbox cars could be another alternative...
