Bwahaha! What a wonderful, caring and sharing person you are! If your office mates can't appreciate your generosity it's too bad.

Maybe so, but my kind of folks! Minds that think alike? I would put up a bulletin telling everyone what I had and take orders for their favorites!

We had about thirty trick-or-treaters show up on out doorstep, some younger, some early teans, and had fun with them all. I had purchased a simple mask that covered the eyes, forehead, and sported a long bird's beak, kind of like the face of the spy vs. spy characters from Mad magazine, but in gold with an ornate ribbon attached to the entire rim of the mask. I put that on with my Jed Clampet style hat. When the kids would come to the door, DW and I would greet them, she with the bowl full of goodies, and me with a deep-red apple. I'd say - "So you want a poison, er, um, I mean a juicy apple?" Some of the kids would say not thanks as they eyed me suspiciously, while some would turn to their parents and say; "I want an apple." To those who wanted the apple, I'd then say; "Go ahead. One bite will turn you into a frog." The parents would go along with the gag and ask if they wanted to turn into a frog. They usually turn away quickly then. All in all, it was good fun for all.

I hope all of you had a great time with the kids who came to your door. In a few minutes, we're going to skype with two of our grandkids, and pretend to throw candy to them, at which point, Sprout will hand them a piece of candy from Grandma and Grandpa. Then they'll pretend to throw candy to us, and we will catch it from the air. I'm looking forward to playing with them, even if it's only through Skype.

Everyone, have a great day.

My father, trying to be a good grandfather, brings my kids so many candies, they cannot eat, that many. He buys good stuff too. So we usually give them out on Halloween.
