we had around 150 kids last night. lots of great costumes, and only a few kids didn't say trick-or-treat or thank you.

thankfully, there were no "young adults" either, and only 1 parent that pushed an infant in a stroller and collected candy (presumably for her own ever-widening butt).

our last kids were at 9pm, and then we shut off the lights and turned on the sprinklers...

that's funny.
they were filming a movie down the street years ago with a cuppla famous folks there so I walked the kids down there to get a birds eye view.
we found a great spot, on someone's lawn.
he peeked out of the window to see us sitting there enjoying the camera stuff and quickly turned on the sprinklers. could he not just ask this mother of 3 to please leave for any number of good reasons or excuses? probably could have and not gotten us wet, poor sport, nut job, wackwad....
