(no subject)

It's a good Halloween night, really . . . very windy . . . cloudy night . . . just enough of a nip in the air. I even bought candy to give out to trick-or-treaters. And none of that Dubble Bubble rock hard gum, either. I'm talking Mike 'n' Ikes, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, and O Henrys. And not one kid in a cute costume!

. . .

I kid you not, as soon as a typed that, I had a stream of about 10 kids to the door. Dorothy (and Toto) and the Tin Man, Davy Crockett, some scary monster-type thing, a cowboy/farmer looking kid, I think there was a fairy in there somewhere . . .

Now I don't feel bad, even if I have to eat the rest of the candy myself. (Which I won't, my dentist will be happy to tell you.)

You know what's missing from tonight? Disney's Halloween Treat and It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. Instead, I'm making do with the original Halloween and The Skeleton Key. My, how things have changed.

Don't forget to have your parents check your candy when you get home tonight . . .
