Otherwise, somebody will be taking all the excess in to work… 🙂

  1. I’m beginning to think that Halloween was an idea cooked up by dentists. The event sure does drum up business (Does it hurt when I do THIS ?? (:^())

    Nothing like a small chunk of chocolate to make the morning right …

  2. We’ve been in our house 35 years, and we don’t get many trick or treaters, and once or twice we’ve gotten zero.

    I’m no longer allowed to buy the candy because I like to get enough candy to be ready for a dramatic increase in the number of trick or treaters.
    This does leave us with a bit (cough) of candy excess to our needs.

    And that’s OK because retirement also means I don’t have access to the giant pile of candy that shows up on the breakroom table on the first of November.

  3. There are no trick-or-treaters at the White Wolf Mine, but I’m thinking of opening a couple cans of corn for the deer/elk. They come, dressed as deer and elk…

  4. Weather here in Georgia is going to be cold and wet.
    Won’t bother my grandkids, though, because local churches and other organizations sponsored indoor events, with games and whatnot.
    Even the local grocery store! They have a sign up telling people to come wander up and down the aisles in costume, which I think is pretty cool.
    Maybe today, I’ll watch Boondock Saints, and tomorrow, I’ll watch Boondock Saints 2: All Saints Day.

  5. VLAD!!

    Coffee missed the monitor, but smacked the window. 7 ft, a new record. Great laugh for the day.

  6. I never developed a sweet tooth but my sons considered trick or treating an Olympic event with their mother’s encouragement. The following two to three days were “hyper”.

  7. Love the Vlad meme. We don’t get the trick or treaters here like we used to. Not as many kids as there were. Back in the day one of the locals would hook a tractor to a wagon and haul all the kids around from house to house. The bulk of the kids arrived at once and they were well supervised. I rather miss that.

  8. jrg- There is that 🙂

    John- I’m hoping we get a LOT of kids… And yeah, don’t miss the break room candy… much…

    Pat- That is great!

    PK- You’re welcome!

    WSF- Oh yeah… sigh…

    Jim- I’ve seen that once in three years here. It was nice!

    BP- 🙂

  9. We had a few years’ lull, and now kidlet numbers are increasing. These are local neighborhood kids for the most part, not the teenagers who drive in from other parts of town.

  10. Once we had a, um, minority ute, show at the door. He appeared to be about 18. His costume? Pantyhose pulled down over his face like an impromptu bank robber. Kinda took the fun out of the moment.

  11. With some candy and a few words accompanied by a disapproving look. I don’t think he was open to suggestions. No doubt he had a bright future. Y’know, I wouldn’t want to open the door nowadays grumble mumble dangit)…

  12. LL, are they now dressed as steaks, chops, and meat-pieces?
