I'm in the middle of handing out candy. We seem to get a couple of kids every 5 minutes. The kids have been so polite! They really know how to turn on the charm in exchange for a little candy....I bought hundreds of chocolate bars -- I might have a few left for me..... maybe... oh, darn , there's the door again -- don't these kids ever stop? Don't they know that they're interrupting my blogging????
Like my Jack o Lantern? I carved it in about 5 minutes -- well, perhaps 10. I got home from work at 5:30, walked the dog, carved the pumpkin, organized the candy and was all set up by 6 -- usually we have kids at 5:30 -- but with the time change being later this year, it's still light at 5:30 and we only trick or treat in the dark here!
Well, it's 7:45 -- I'm almost ready to blow out the pumpkin --- it's only big kids out now -- and some have no costumes on. No costume, no treat. Although I don't like to do this because maybe they'll remember my house and egg it. Better just to turn out the lights.
