Happy Halloween Everyone!

I'm off to get dinner going, carve the pumpkin, roast the seeds and hand out lots of sugary treats to little ones.

Hope you all have a lovely evening with the little ghosties, goblins and the ferocious Static Cling monster!

Same here to everyone. We had a blissfully warm day today...73 degrees. Yeah! Buck and I have parked ourselves on our nice big front porch with our cauldron of candy.

Trick-or-treating time, by order of the Mayor, is from 5 to 8 p.m., so we'll see how many ghoulish beggars we get. We've had as many as 100 in the past. With such nice weather, I won't be surprised if turnout is great.

It was aboslutely super weather up here by Lake Erie today, too. I worked outside around the house all day, with one quick trip into Wally World for some Halloween candy. Miniature Almond Joy candy. My favorite...... I never get any trick or treaters It's a good excuse though

It's nice to see you are observing the Federal Law about only buying candy that YOU like. I believe that's written in stone somewhere.

Been havin' a ball. Lots of children. Probably close to 35 by now. The costumes have been great. So far there have been no duplicates and no "cheesy" ones.

We've also been impressed with the number of parents who have accompanied their children.

Still another hour to go. What fun!!

We weren't going to give candy this year (our dogs and open doors don't mix) but I ended up getting a bag. I put it in a bowl and left it out on the porch.
