I heard this on a news show the other night and it kind of helped put the national debt in more of a perspective for me.

Musician Taylor Swift pulls in about $80 million a year. She would have to perform every day for three years just to pay the interest on the current national debt. Wow.

Thanks to the Idaho County Trunk or Treat volunteers. I had a fun time taking my great-nephew, Robby, 3, trick-or-treating. He was especially excited to climb up in the fire truck. A special thanks to the nice man on Tamera Drive who not only told us we could pick apples from his tree but brought us a bag to take them home in. They are delicious!
