Happy Halloween

 I longingly remember the excitement of Halloween 
(back in the day) 
especially when it started to get dark.  
The kids would run around the house getting ready...
asking for help with their costumes 
and face paint.

PaulA would take them out trick-or-treating…
and I would stay home to pass out candy.  
One for you…
one for me.  
Two for you…
two for me.

So what treats will you be giving out to the 
when they visit your house? 

I know there are some folks 
who think that kids get enough sugar…
so they go the carb/starch route
bags of crackers, pretzel, popcorn.

Then there are those who
go the fruit route…apple.  
(Never tomatoes…they have a way of finding their way back to you.)

Today I was listening to "The Herd with Colin Cowherd" on ESPN.  
Colin said he was planning on giving out 
“moist jerky” to the kids. 
Apparently he is going the protein route.

There is a part of me (small part) that can understand jerky. 
That’s because our Colinboy would have loved a jerky stick
(must be something about the name Colin and loving jerky)
but there is no part of me that understands 
“moist jerky.”
(The word “moist” is not a pleasant word.)

I always take the sugar route…
candy bars and some non-chocolates like Skittles, lollipops, and Starbursts, 
(for those who are like Wishy.)


I do know you have to be careful 
with what you are passing off as "treats"…
should the goblins, ghouls, and ghosts
be unhappy...
 it can be a 

Recipe for Disaster…
2 dozen eggs, 
6 rotten tomatoes, 
10 rolls of toilet paper

step 1.  Moisten Toilet Paper.

step 2.  Break one dozen eggs on front walk of house.

step 3.  Throw one dozen eggs against house. 

step 4.  Throw 6 tomatoes at windows.

step 5.  Using 10 rolls of moist toilet paper, 
paper all trees, shrubs, and lamp posts in front yard.

Happy Halloween

I bought a bag full of Rolos, Hersheys chocolate, and Peanut butter cups. I turned on my light and even put a sign on the door that read, " Ring apt 1 for CANDY!" I didn't get one trick-or-treater!!!! At least I have the bag of candy to myself :-)
