We went to a friend’s house for dinner tonight. It was a good time, some mellow hanging out and a meal together. Then we headed out for some trick or treating, one stop at a house along the way and then to the neighborhood in town. The town threw a party and half of us went to that. The kids hauled in some good loot.
I took my son to the video store. It is going out of business, so all the films are for sale. We picked up a few. He got to show off his tractor costume which was, as at every stop, a hit. He picked out a few Thomas the Tank Engine videos and that made him happy as a kid on Halloween.
We have a pile of candy now, right on the floor with the children sorting through it. I just polished off a peanut butter cup. Tasty. We tossed a couple of random gelatin type jobbers. They look fun but were probably made in China and who needs more lead? We will still have plenty for many days.
Happy Halloween. No costumed children visiting this house with its long long driveway, even if we do leave the light on. In fact, we left a bowl of the sweet stuff on the deck with the porch light on while we were out. No takers. All the more for us, right? It’s just what we need.
