What Grandpa Will Do On Halloween

Good moms and dads dress up on Halloween and accompany their kiddies on Trick or Treating.  I did it when my girls were growing up,  You can see a younger Toritto, 30 plus years ago in his Halloween trick or treat costumes with his girls here:


Now, with the passing of time, my eldest daughter and Clark dress for Halloween and will be going out with the trick or treat kids while grandpa stays home and hands out Twix to the kiddies ringing his doorbell.

I won’t be with Clark for Halloween but he insists he and I share a video call on Halloween so he can see my costume.  Now I didn’t have a costume nor did I plan to dress for Halloween.  I merely give out candy.

But now I need one.

I have decided to dress as a well known historic figure.


His Eminence  Cardinal Toritto di Medici.


P.S  – Only for the video call!

About toritto

I was born during year four of the reign of Emperor Tiberius Claudius on the outskirts of the empire in Brooklyn. I married my high school sweetheart, the girl I took to the prom and we were together for forty years until her passing in 2004. We had four kids together and buried two together. I had a successful career in Corporate America (never got rich but made a living) and traveled the world. I am currently retired in the Tampa Bay metro area and live alone. One of my daughters is close by and one within a morning’s drive. They call their pops everyday. I try to write poetry (not very well), and about family. Occasionally I will try a historical piece relating to politics. :-)

    Cardinal Medici? Suitably random, Frank. I predict NOBODY will know who you are supposed to be! 🙂
    Nice one! Actually hilarious. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.
