I live in Saint Helena CA, but grew up just down the Hwy in Napa through the Eighties.

Also at a Cub Scouts party I wore my sisters Girl Scout Uniform and once again killed with my fellow scouts. Totally my idea.
I started [at the post office] in October of 1988 and was able to dress up within two weeks of being hired. My Post Office is quite small and the Supervisors over the years have been very encouraging in indulging my dress up tendencies.
Halloween night of course, I decorate the house and often will show movies on a screen outside my house. 16mm movies projected, not this newfangled DVD projector stuff. (Though, I admit I'd have more range if I did use DVDs.)
My father died at 7:30 on Halloween night in 1992 and we always raise a glass in his honor. I will never be sad remembering his death date, because Halloween is my favorite day of the year.
As you can see, I do delight in the DIY ethic and will keep it up as long as I can.
