And the Great Pumpkin slides down the chimney, and then....

 A Pleasant Episode
to all Southwest Texas
State University Bobcats
during this period that approaches the Feast of All
Souls and All Saints in the Orthodox Churches of
the West, and known well as All Hallow's Even
or Halloween!!!! among all peoples.

Care for the little ones, as the Nazarene ordered,
as recorded in Matthew 10:  13 - 16

And they brought young children to him,
that he should touch them:
And his disciples rebuked those that brought them.

But when Jesus saw it, he was much displeased,
and said unto them,
Suffer the little children to come unto me.
and forbid them not:
for of such is the kingdom of God.

Verily, I say unto you,
Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom
of God as a little child,
he shall not enter therein.


We recognise that the ranks of the OROGs does not need an admonition from El Gringo Viejo to protect your nieces, nephews, sons, daughter, and grandchildren....along with the children of favoured friends and Godchildren etc.   But in these days, the perversity of
mankind prospers, and an extra eye is needed during
even these great and grand celebrations of the
lives of those who did well before the Lord.

Thine be the Glory - a typical anthem during the
 Feast of All Souls and All Saints

We shall make every good attempt to take a series of pictures, with permission from the families of course, at the events surrounding the traditional cemetery visits at these times in Mexico.   It is normally a moving event.
