Eco-Gal in the Flesh
Last Friday I was having dinner with my son and told him about my Halloween plans. Our church sponsored a “Trunk or Treat” and this year’s turned out to be the biggest one yet. We had about twenty-five cars parked around our grass parking area and, for two hours, we passed out candy to all the trick or treaters. We also had supper and a Bounce House. Some folks decorated their trunks and themselves. I saw some great costumes.
Our church kids were there but we also saw many new faces. I don’t know how but word got around. We must have had two hundred people show up! It was amazing.
Anyway, when I mentioned that I was passing out GMO-free, organic candy, my son said, “Mom, you have to dress up as Eco-Gal.” As soon as he said it I knew he was right. God obviously approved of the scheme. Saturday I went to the thrift shop and found a green dress (that fit). Also, a green coat. Not a cape but close. Both garments cost less than $5. Ever since I started blogging a friend of mine kept insisting that Eco-Gal needs a costume. Well, Mandy, you got your wish. Here is Eco-Gal in the flesh.
Mandy’s vision was more of a Female Farmer Green Jeans but I went for a Green Fairy Godmother. What can I say? It’s a work in progress.
As folks filed past I got to mention some of the advantages of driving an electric car. Also, notice the “God Is Green” sign? Didn’t add that until late Wednesday afternoon. I friend asked me where I was going to put my sign and it occurred to me that I didn’t have one. Duh!
Now that I think on it, I believe it’s time to have a sign professionally made and put down by the edge of the road along with my Sierra Club sign that says “Protect Our Water”. Both seem to go together. Don’t you agree?
