I was putting up some Halloween decorations last night when I had a startling realization. As I stood at the end of our driveway staring at the white plastic ghosts and spider webs, it occurred to me that putting up caution tape on the trees probably wasn't the best idea.
We've put up caution tape for the past few years. When we had our patio put in, the contractor left a big roll of caution tape. We've used it every Halloween since then.
This year, though, I didn't take into account recent events. It was probably not a very good idea to put up caution tape in a neighborhood still recovering from the recent plane crash. No one came out with any comments, but I'm sure at least one of the neighbors is wonder what I was thinking -- and rightfully so.
