We had 44 kids for trick or treat. My DH always takes care of giving out the candy, he does it every year, he loves doing it. The favorite treat tonight were the juice boxes.

Wow, 44?! That's a lot of trick or treaters, Joann.

Cute pic, Somebun. She looks so happy.

I'm sitting here. The cat woke me up at 3 am. I put Mark's lunch together (tuna sandwich, banana, chips and a few mini dill pickles with bottled water) and did some dishes. I have a load of laundry in the dryer. I'm going to make myself some breakfast soon and enjoy "Diners, Drive-ins & Dives." It seems they had a marathon of a bunch of shows. There were quite a few that I've missed. For some reason, I love that show.

That is about what we get each year. We don't live to far from a grade school, so there are a lot of children in our neighborhood. It was also my granddaughters birthday so we had a little celebration for her.

We used to get around 60 kids a year. Now I maxed out at 15. I think its so sad that kids go to malls and other indoor events now. I remember how excited we were about going out in the dark and running from house to house. I wonder if you can get that excited about going around a mall? No thrill of being in the dark there.

Yep, that was back in the days when you heard stories aobut peopel putting bad things in the candies, but no one ever saw any. Now, they catch one of these weirdos every year somewhere. What kind of sick SOB would do something like that?

As for what I am doing, a whole lot of nothing. . .didn't have a single trick or treater, not a one. SO, having kit kats minis for dinner, lol, and awaiting a fun day at the hospital tomorrow.
Ok, this is getting crazy. Again, I woke with the hiccups. They only lasted 30 minutes, but I"ve gotten really tired of having them. they aren't the chest heaving type of hiccup, but a milder version that is more like an after supper burp than a hiccup. When I wake, they start about a minute later. this morning, they went away after my first sip of my coffee drink.

Down inside my chest, there is a continous localized pain like a sore place right at the level of my solar plexus, on the left side of it. It's tender to the touch and lights up when the hiccups start again. Anyone heard of this or had it happen to them? It's become a real annoyance. I"m starting to think of the hiccups as "my little friend"! yikes! I want to lose this friendship!

I've had these damn things since Saturday evening. Enough is enough!
