I'm growing old along with Mick, so I understand. But the old guys can still rock!

Tina!!!!

What do you think of 'Tina"? I don't think the 'kids' today can do the moves she does! And would you check out her legs? Goes to show, you don't move you lose it. She has always been someone who made me get up and move. I miss her. I bet she still moves everyday.

My brother always reminds me that people should be ironed everyday. Just like clothes they wrinkle easy.

Pet peeve of the day, people who snub other people. One group of kids declined to come to our house laast night while trick-or-treating. They were overheard saying to their parents, "We don't want to go to that house."

Maybe our porch was too well decorated, or the lighted path with Holloween orange mini-lights made them think we weren't home.

And the decorations were fun, not too spooky. I guess the fake skeletons hangning from or poplanter pole in the front yard scared them off. I hate being snubbed, and by complete strangers at that.

I don't have any idea why this bothers me today. It just does. I put a lot of time decorating the yard to make holloween a treat for those who show up at our door. And I give full-sized candy bars. I love making people smile, especially kids.

I did have to laugh at one group of kids who showed up at the door. They didn't yell trick or treat. When asked why, the oldest boy said that it was because last year, when they yelled trick or treat, they got sprayed with silly string along with getting there candy. I guess they didn't like that. But their parents found it hillarious. I won't use silly string again. Seems the kids just want the treat, not the trick, even if it's a harmless trick.

Seeeeeeya; Goodweed of the North

I can't believe they said that goodweed!!! They don't deserve the treat that's for sure.

That's a GREAT "trick" - funny they remembered! lol I didn't do anything this year - I've spent way too much on candy in the past years and a couple kids say "is this all we get'? Each kid gets about 6 pieces - is that not enough? So this year I went out to dinner! It was GOOD too - tapas night!

Maybe I didn't give out candy last year either - I don't think I did - I'm just "over it" I guess.

Now that's interesting. Have I understood rightly about trick or treat, that the kids are given either a trick or a treat?

When I lived in Britain, trick or treat was just starting to take off. The whole business was very threatening even then. Basically it boiled down to kids demanding a treat or else they'd give you a trick. The tricks were mostly a total nuisance - eggs thrown at your windows or car, that kind of thing. I remember one evening we had human excrement wrapped in newspaper placed on our doorstep and set on fire. Fortunately, I was so shocked I shut the door and went to find a fire extinguisher rather than doing what one would ordinarily do with a flaming newspaper, stamp it out.

Everyone gets treats as a rule - or if they are tricked they still get a treat.
